The purpose of the Requirements for a National Forest Guide Information Document is to gather a set of requirements for a national, authoritative Forest Guide (FG) in order to allow an entity (NENA, FCC, DOT, etc.) to procure the technology and services required from this NG9-1-1 functional element. A Forest Guide is a special instance of a LoST server. It is part of the Location to Service Translation (LoST) protocol (RFC5222)query process and allows client functional elements to discover call routing information outside of its domain (typically their ESInet or state level ECRF/LVF).
