ANSI Approves New Version of NENA i3 NG 9-1-1 Standard
Thursday, October 07, 2021 | Comments

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) fully approved the new version of the National Emergency Number Association’s (NENA) i3 next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) standard. The approval confirms that the i3 standard complies with all ANSI essential requirements.

Version 3 of NENA's i3 Standard for next-generation 9-1-1 serves as the foundation for a 21st-century, broadband-based 9-1-1 ecosystem and includes key updates to NG 9-1-1 infrastructure, paving the way for 9-1-1-system interoperability on a national and international scale.

“NENA volunteers worked tirelessly to develop and publish i3 Version 3 through the rigorous, consensus-based processes that NENA is known for,” said NENA President Jennifer White. “ANSI’s approval validates this process and provides the public-safety community with further confidence in this comprehensive, open standard for NG 9-1-1. This will no doubt hasten and strengthen 9-1-1’s collective push to see NG 9-1-1 systems, services and products deployed from coast to coast.”

NENA has been developing non-proprietary consensus-based, universally used and universally recognized 9-1-1 standards for more than 30 years. NENA’s more than 1,000 volunteers work an estimated 33,000 hours annually to develop, update and manage nearly 200 operational and technical standards for E9-1-1 and NG 9-1-1. NENA is an ANSI-accredited standards-development organization, and the association welcomes all interested parties to join its working groups.
