Executive Overview

This document defines operational processes and procedures necessary to support the i3 Emergency Call Routing Function (ECRF) and Location Validation Function (LVF). Additionally, this document identifies ECRF/LVF performance and implementation considerations for 9-1-1 Authorities’ consideration.

The roles and responsibilities of 9-1-1 Authorities vary depending on jurisdictional hierarchy, resource availability, capabilities, service arrangements, and regulations and statutes. As such, 9-1-1 Authorities are expected to work with ECRF/LVF operators to further clarify and/or identify additional required services prior to development and implementation of ECRF and LVF.

Although this document contains references to 9-1-1 Authorities’ Geographic Information Systems (GISs), Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) equipment, access and call network providers Location Information Servers (LIS), and other core functions of the Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet), their functionality and operations are out of scope for this document. NENA 08-003, Detailed Functional and Interface Specification for the NENA i3 Solution – Stage 3 (commonly known as i3), contains definition of data structures and detailed functional and interface standards that are referenced in this document.

GIS data must be provisioned to ECRF/LVF systems. Provisioning of GIS data to ECRF and LVF for NG9-1-1 is the ongoing process of publishing the most current and accurate authoritative GIS data into ECRF/LVF systems.
