TIA Issues Call for Interest for Enhanced Wireless 9-1-1 Phase II Standard

Arlington VA. (October 19, 2016) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks that develops voluntary standards for the information and communications technology (ICT) industry, today announced has issued a call for interest to open a new project  document, J-STD-036-C-2, initially titled Enhanced Wireless 9-1-1 Phase II

TIA’s Engineering Subcommittee TR-45.8 for Core Networks - Mobile and Personal Communications Standards is developing guidelines to modify the industry’s Emergency Services, E 9-1-1Phase 2 standard to add six handset and five hybrid position source codes for geodetic position reporting and three class of service codes for civic address reporting.

Key stakeholders for this specification include 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP), cellular operators, and 9-1-1 network and service providers.

TIA’s standards activities are carried out by voluntary members of TIA’s Engineering Committees and actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
