NENA Releases Two Standards for Comment
Wednesday, November 04, 2020 | Comments

The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) released two standards and is seeking public comment on them.

The “Standard for the Implementation of the Wireless Emergency Service Protocol E2” provides explicit protocols and parameters for interoperable operation of the E2 interface over transport control protocol (TCP)/IP. The interface is between the mobile positioning center (MPC)/gateway mobile location center (GMLC) and the emergency services message entity (ESME) as defined in ANSI/J-STD-036-C-2-2017, or an automatic location identification (ALI) system or legacy network gateway (LNG). The standard specifies implementation details not specified in ANSI/J-STD-036-C-2-2017 down to explicit elements so that there can be no confusion regarding how parameters are to be implemented.

Find the standard here. Comments on that standard are due Nov. 15.

The “Next-Generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) United States Civic Location Data Exchange Format (CLDXF) Standard” provides a definitive set of core civic location data elements that support emergency response and supports the exchange of U.S. civic location information related to 9-1-1 calls, both within the U.S. and internationally, by defining the detailed data elements for location data exchange.

The associated reference document, “Moving Data Between Datasets Compliant with FGDC Address and NENA CLDXF Standards,” presents CLDXF in relation to the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) standard by stating the equivalencies between FGDC and CLDXF elements and noting any discrepancies in definition or construction.

Find the standard here and the reference document here. Comments on the standard are due Dec. 11.
