NENA/APCONext Generation 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point Requirements, NENA/APCO-REQ-001.1-2015, introduces requirements for a NG9-1-1 PSAP that is capable of receiving IP-based signaling and media for delivery of emergency calls conformant to the latest version of the NENA i3 Architecture document. An emergency call enters the i3 PSAP using Session Initiation Protocol signaling. NG9-1-1 encourages the creation of many new coordination and information access services to enrich collaborative interactions between all agencies involved in processing emergency service requests. This document is issued as NENA/APCO recommended requirements for functions and interfaces between an i3 PSAP and NG9-1-1 Core Services, and among Functional Elements associated with the i3 PSAP. This document is primarily intended to drive the development of more standards that meet the technical requirements specified in the document.
