NENA is pleased to announce the public availability of the
NENA Registry System or NRS. We are excited about this important milestone and
want to thank Brian Dupras for all the hours of personal time he spent in
developing and coding this critical system. Without his commitment to NENA and
9-1-1, the NRS would not be available today. NENA would also like to thank
Jason Horning and Delaine Arnold for the time they have spent making the NRS a
reality and available to all parties requiring this information. The NENA
Registry System may be found at http://technet.nena.org/nrs.
The NRS was documented in the NENA Registry System Standard (NENA STA 70-001) to serve as a central repository and
access point for registries created within NENA standards. Registries are the
byproduct of thoughtful workgroup consideration and serve as consensus on the
allowable identifiers, constants, and other well-known values that are
exchanged within NG9-1-1. Today the NRS holds many of the registries created by
NENA's Detailed Functional and Interface Specification for the NENA i3 Solution
–Stage 3 (08-003 v1). In the future, the NRS will hold new registries
already under development. As NENA's standards work their way through the
necessary comment and approval processes, updates will be made to the NRS.
Through the NRS, NENA is also offering everyone an opportunity to submit new
registry values. Each submittal will be considered in accordance with the NENA
Registry System Standard and, if approved, added to the NRS.
