NENA is now accepting proposals and requests to participate for the next NG9-1-1 interoperability Industry Collaboration Event (ICE). ICE 5 will focus on emergency services for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. With standards work ongoing and evolving and considering the wide variety of technologies, services, and protocols related to this accessibility issue, vendors are encouraged to submit proposals regarding what they would like to test. Any suggestion will be considered. For example, testing could focus on a solution for handling text messages within the i3 context, or a method for efficiently sending video using NG9-1-1 call routing techniques.

Please respond before December 31, as the ICE team would like to begin planning in January for an anticipated summer 2012 event.

You may provide all comments and responses to Nate Wilcox and Delaine Arnold. If you have questions or would like additional information, contact Nate at 802.723.6218 (office) or 802.673.2048 (cell).
