TIA Issues Call for Interest on new Project for Enhanced Wireless 9-1-1 Phase II

Stakeholders Invited to Contact TIA Regarding Participation

Arlington, VA (December 24, 2018) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-45.8 Engineering Committee on Core Networks – Mobile and Personal Communications Standards has issued a call for interest for documents J-STD-036-C  and J-STD-036-C-1 initially titled “Enhanced Wireless 9-1-1 Phase II.

TR-45.8 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “This Standard provides a solution for the handling of Wireless Enhanced Emergency Calls for the FCC E911 Phase II mandate. Carrier position reporting to emergency services systems, as mandated by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) under docket 94-102 (including orders 96-264, 99-96 and 99-245) has been addressed by this interim Standard without considering position reporting privacy restrictions that may be desirable for other position reporting services. For this reason, this Standard does not preclude these other service restrictions.”

TR-45.8 is creating an addendum to assign two POSOUR codes to be used in association with two new CoS indicators for to support text to 911 and small fixed cells.

TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.

Stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: 9-1-1 PSAP, cellular operators, 9-1-1 network and service providers.

A major function of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) is the writing and maintenance of voluntary industry standards and specifications. These activities are carried out by the volunteer members of TIA engineering committees. Recent meeting reports, agendas and notices for upcoming meetings, as well as links to some of the most popular standards from each committee are available on the public engineering committee pages.
