Carriers Hit Deadline to Deliver X/Y Location for Half of Wireless 9-1-1 Calls
Monday, April 02, 2018 | Comments

The FCC provided guidance to commercial mobile radio service (CMRS) providers on filing certifications of compliance with the three-year E9-1-1 location accuracy benchmark as required by the commission’s rules. The three-year benchmark requires CMRS providers to provide, as of April 3, dispatchable location or X/Y location (latitude and longitude) within 50 meters for 50 percent of all wireless 9-1-1 calls.

CMRS providers must certify compliance with this benchmark no later than June 4. Carriers have additional E9-1-1 location accuracy deadlines in 2018.

The rules released in 2015 provide that nationwide CMRS providers must deliver X/Y location within 50 meters within three years of the release of the rules, 70 percent of all wireless 9-1-1 calls within five years, and 80 percent of all wireless 9-1-1 calls within six years of the release of the rules.

More information is available in the latest public notice.
