This document defines operational
processes and procedures necessary to support the i3 Emergency Call Routing
Function (ECRF) and Location Validation Function (LVF). Additionally, this
document identifies ECRF/LVF performance and implementation considerations for
9-1-1 Authorities’ consideration.
The roles and responsibilities of 9-1-1
Authorities vary depending on jurisdictional hierarchy, resource availability,
capabilities, service arrangements, and regulations and statutes. As such,
9-1-1 Authorities are expected to work with ECRF/LVF operators to further
clarify and/or identify additional required services prior to development and
implementation of ECRF and LVF.
Although this document contains references
to 9-1-1 Authorities’ Geographic Information Systems (GISs), Public Safety
Answering Point (PSAP) equipment, access and call network providers Location
Information Servers (LIS), and other core functions of the Emergency Services
IP Network (ESInet), their functionality and operations are out of scope for
this document. NENA 08-003, Detailed Functional and Interface
Specification for the NENA i3 Solution – Stage 3 (commonly known as i3),
contains definition of data structures and detailed functional and interface
standards that are referenced in this document.
GIS data must be provisioned to ECRF/LVF
systems. Provisioning of GIS data to ECRF and LVF for NG9-1-1 is the
ongoing process of publishing the most current and accurate authoritative GIS
data into ECRF/LVF systems.
