Data Management for Local Exchange Carriers, ALI Service Providers & 9-1-1 Jurisdictions
document sets forth NENA standards for all Service Providers (SPs)
involved in providing dial tone to end users whether or not they are the
9-1-1 Database Management System Provider (DBMSP) or a SP in an
Enhanced 9-1-1 area. It includes Database Maintenance, Quality
measurements, INP, LNP and Number Pooling standards to be utilized for
any 9-1-1 system that provides information for data display. It defines
measurements that support meaningful computations to allow for a better
understanding of database quality and timeliness of database updates.
This document defines the provisioning requirements for E9-1-1 data
integrity, content, and call delivery regardless of Access

is the goal of these standards to support current and future
development consistent with the concept of "One Nation, One Number”. It

Updates, E9-1-1 Inquires (ANI/ALI trouble resolution), and additional
information. The software also allows the user to transmit the
documents via various electronic methods.
In addition this document defines standards for the data transmission
of E9-1-1 updates by all SPs providing dial tone within the boundaries
of an Enhanced 9-1-1 Jurisdiction. Utilization of these standards will
provide for timely activation of emergency service databases and help to
minimize costs incurred by providing accurate and consistent
provisioning of ALI data. Throughout the creation of these standards,
the goal was to set standards that would allow the shortest amount of
time a record shall remain in an error condition. All entities must be
aware of any time zone differences when discussing time frames such as
one (1) business day.
