NENA recently filed comments in the FCC's Facilitating the Deployment of Text-to-911 and Other Next Generation 911 Applications; Framework for Next Generation 911 Deployment Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. In the filing, NENA argues that: The Commission should facilitate the development and optional deployment of  durable interim text-to-9-1-1 solutions; the Commission should support the adoption of standards-based methods for handling text messaging in Next Generation 9-1-1 systems; enabling text-to-9-1-1 service could improve the reliability and resiliency of 9-1-1 service for mobile network subscribers; the Commission should facilitate an orderly  deployment of text-to-9-1-1 capabilities on a  uniform, nation-wide basis; prioritizing 9-1-1 traffic in common-carrier networks is not unreasonable discrimination; and prioritizing traffic in broadband networks is consistent with the Open Internet Order.
