Click here to watch this special webinar on the historic agreement reached between NENA, APCO, and the "Big 4" national wireless carriers on Wireless E9-1-1 Location Accuracy. For the first time, carriers have agreed to begin delivering "dispatchable location," rather than just latitude and longitude for wireless 9-1-1 calls. This advance puts us on a path to parity with the wireline world, and will help preserve the effectiveness of 9-1-1 service as consumers and carriers alike transition from wired to wireless services. This free webinar covers:

  • The definition of "Dispatchable Location" and the roadmap that will make it a reality for wireless calls.
  • The transition to using live 9-1-1 call data for carrier compliance assessment.
  • The timeline for standards development, handset roll-out, and network builds.
  • The roles and realities of other interest groups.
This webinar gives you the information you need to understand the location accuracy agreement and to handle inquiries from media and other interest groups.
