Tuesday, February 25, 2014 | Comments

The National 9-1-1 Program released its most recent update of the report “Next-Generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) Standards Identification and Review: A Compilation of Existing and Planned Standards for NG 9-11- Systems.” The report outlines work being done to develop technical standards and includes updates on standards related to data, testing and operations.

Each of the standards development organizations (SDOs) whose standards are included have reviewed the content for accuracy and were supportive of the National 9-1-1 Program’s effort to provide the 9-1-1 community with a cumulative list of NG 9-1-1-related work. The standards will be important in ensuring a seamless emergency communications system, particularly as the nationwide public-safety broadband network is deployed, a statement said.

With a number of SDOs addressing NG 9-1-1 issues, understanding and tracking the developing standards can be a daunting task. Since 2011, the National 9-1-1 Program has supported the standards development effort by compiling and sharing all of the current standards information in one report. The program committed to update this report annually to provide the most current picture of the status of NG 9-1-1 standards and support the SDOs’ effort to develop joint standards.

Standards development for NG 9-1-1 plays a vital role in helping the 9-1-1 community make informed decisions for a cost-effective and efficient transition to NG 9-1-1, especially in a constantly evolving space of connected, interoperable emergency communications, the program said in a statement.
