NENA Takes Comments on IoT and 9-1-1 Document
Friday, March 20, 2020 | Comments

The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) is taking comments on an internet of things (IoT) document that outlines how the technology affects 9-1-1.

“Impact of IoT Devices and Emergency Calling Applications” describes the impact of IoT devices and emergency calling applications on emergency calling. Developers of IoT devices, and developers and managers of systems that employ these devices, should consider this document in the early phases of design and development, to address the potential impact on 9 1 1 operations, and to assure that their implementation(s) are effective in their intended emergency notification to 9 1 1 services. This document discusses impacts to the operations of 9 1 1 system operators and public-safety answering points (PSAPs) caused by emergency calls and data received from IoT devices and apps.

The document is available here, and all comments are due April 24.
