Future 9-1-1 Models
Full Name:
Future 9-1-1 Models Technical Information Document
Document Type: Informational
Number: 07-501 v10              ARCHIVED 20150922

The purpose of this document is to develop models of 9-1-1 systems that will provide the features and functionalities that the public safety organizations need to do their job of responding to 9-1-1 calls. The models have been developed with a view to the future in that each model represents either a view of what currently exists or what is expected to exist at a predefined point in the future.

The scope of this document is limited to which a function or feature meets at least one of the following criteria:

  • Provides information about the person or source of the 9-1-1 call.
  • Provides the caller’s location.
  • Identifies the emergency, including allowing for interfaces to receive that emergency data from specific systems.
  • Provides the telecommunicator with information on what and how to dispatch.
  • Describes equipment performance features.
These models do not represent component design, but provide the framework within which the other NENA committees can design and develop recommendations and standards.
