Tuesday, June 14, 2016 | Comments

The NG911 NOW Coalition created a new program designed to expand participation in the coalition and to coalesce national, state and local efforts around a unified goal of deploying next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) services by the end of 2020. The NG911 NOW Partners Program will support efforts to broaden support for NG 9-1-1 by establishing alliances with organizations that are key to effective NG 9-1-1 implementation.

Five organizations joined the NG911 NOW Coalition as its first partners. The Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center (ITEC), a center within the Academy for Advanced Telecommunications and Learning Technologies at Texas A&M University, will provide valuable technical expertise to the coalition on NG 9-1-1 and other IP-based technologies.

The 911 Education Foundation (9EF), a research subsidiary of iCERT focused on emergency response support to public-safety stakeholders, and the NG911 Institute, a not-for-profit organization that serves as an educational resource for the Congressional NextGen 9-1-1 Caucus, will help the coalition to raise awareness of NG 9-1-1 issues and educate policymakers and affected stakeholders on the benefits of accelerating NG 9-1-1 deployment.

The National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) and the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA), two organizations committed to advancing the use of geographic information systems (GIS), will help the coalition drive the advancement of GIS initiatives, important to leveraging the full benefits of NG 9-1-1.
