Location Information to Support IP-Based Emergency Services
Full Name:
Technical Requirements for Location Information to Support IP-Based Emergency Services
Document Type: Requirements
Number: 08-752 v1

This Technical Reference document provides the NENA requirements for providing location information to support emergency calling. It also provides example scenarios and use cases that need to be supported. This is being provided to support organizations that are defining solutions for determining, acquiring and conveying location information to support emergency calling.

Location information is extremely important to Enhanced 9-1-1 (E911) Services for two reasons:

  1. In North America, the caller’s location is used to determine the routing of the emergency call to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP).

  2. The PSAP generally uses the caller’s location to assist in the dispatch of the appropriate emergency response resources to the site of the emergency.
