NENA formed the NG Partner Program as a public-private partnership to improve the nation’s 9-1-1 system and to establish a cohesive vision between technology providers and public safety stakeholders. Their goal has been to address the critical need for an IP-enabled Next Generation 9-1-1(NG 9-1-1) system, one that adapts rapidly to new technology and supports new communications devices such as text messaging and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). The 2005 report is the culmination of nine face-to-face roundtable meetings in that year, which brought together NG Partner Program partners, NENA staff and invited content experts. The 26 program partners represented wireline providers, wireless carriers, VoIP service providers, 9-1-1 product or service vendors and non-profit organizations. Multiple roundtable meetings focused on policy, technology, operations and education issues.
