Where we are, and how we got here EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS TODAY 3 3/4/14
The First Call -‐ Haleyville, AL At 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16, 1968, the ﬁrst 9-‐1-‐1 call was placed from the mayor's oﬃce in Haleyville, AL 9-‐1-‐1 is turning 46 next year!
The Purpose of 9-‐1-‐1 • Single number access – Police – Fire – Medical • Consistent number access – EliminaNng unique agency numbers – Routed based on LOCATION 5 3/4/14
The CHALLENGES of 9-‐1-‐1 PHONE NUMBERS NO LONGER EQUAL THE USER’S LOCATION USER MOBILITY NOMADIC ACCESS CIVIC ADDRESS ARE NOW GEOSPATIAL COORDINATES CELLULAR OFFERS ONLY X and Y COORDINATES, IN A HIGH-‐RISE BUILDING “Z” IS VERY IMPORTANT CELLULAR LOCATION VIA GPS PERFORMS POORLY INDOORS, IF AT ALL 6 3/4/14
Under InformaNon Over-‐load • The Network today-‐ – Analog based – Lidle Intelligence – Reached its limits to pass informaNon • Today’s Devices – Intelligent Endpoints – MulNmedia Enabled – Aware of their surroundings Even though Smart Devices exist, they have no way of communicaNng, other than voice. 7 3/4/14
NG911 Where we are headed, and how we are gegng there EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS TOMORROW 8 3/4/14
NextGen 9-‐1-‐1: Are we there? NG9-‐1-‐1 will be implemented in successive releases ESInet is an IP enabled network Full replacement for exisNng E9-‐1-‐1 funcNons Introduce addiNonal features InteracNve MulN-‐Modal messaging Policy-‐based rouNng using Device LocaNon Call type Target PSAP status Network status AutomaNc acquisiNon of supporNve data NG 9-‐1-‐1 PHASE 1 2 3 4 ? 9 3/4/14
AddiNonal Data Feeds 10 3/4/14
Survey Says . . . . How would you prefer to be able to reach 9-‐1-‐1? 3,149 surveys were issued 2,973 or 94% users responded (could select mulNple) 1,431 or 48.1% wanted to use TEXT 1,045 or 35.1% wanted to use VIDEO 695 or 23.4% wanted to use SPEECH 939 or 31.6% wanted to use VOICE, VIDEO and TEXT
NG9-‐1-‐1 Data CorrelaWon Fletch just made a 9-‐1-‐1 call Someone needs to see if Fletch is alright. Fletch just made a 9-‐1-‐1 call AND The ambient temperature near Fletch is 227 degrees! Someone needs to see if Fletch is ON FIRE.
SituaNonal Awareness In addiNon to people, devices should be able to intelligently summon for assistance based on environmental condiNons or addiNonal data. WebRTC will allow that to happen.
Enterprise Data Feeds LocaWon URI/URL conveyed in the SIP header • Enterprise LocaNon Management (ELM) servers in the DMZ provide informaNon about: • Users • Devices • LocaWon • Environmental Data • Event CorrelaWon • This will empower Public Safety with addiNonal informaNon enabling beder decisions • Temperature Sensors • Video feeds • Physiological data
TODAY: IN-‐BAND VOICE ONLY
FUTURE – MULTI-‐MODAL EMERGENCY SERVICE IP NETWORK (ESInet)
Web RTC Stand Alone or Dual Path
Legislative side of E9-1-1 “If WebRTC is being sold—or can be interpreted as delivering a replacement to traditional telephone service (desktop device), then the 9-1-1 capability must be addressed. “ Martha Buyer, Attorney firstname.lastname@example.org www.marthabuyer.com 716-652-4413
Current LegislaNve Landscape ! 18 States have a reference to MLTS/PBX ! Michigan deﬁnes a penalty for non-‐compliance ! OSHA maintains you must have a ‘safe workplace’ ! NENA ﬁled very strong comments on a recent Federal CommunicaNons Commission NoNce of Inquiry regarding MLTS – ! “MLTS Loca6on capabili6es are feasible, and [the FCC] should begin a proceeding to establish a 6meframe for mandatory implementa6on.”
