GeoComm Participates in NENA NG9-1-1 Standards and Best Practices Conference
Next week marks the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) NG9-1-1 Standards and Best Practices Conference. This conference, taking place January 15 -18 in Orlando, Florida, features more than two-dozen NG9-1-1 focused sessions and is aimed at generating an interactive atmosphere that will help shape the path forward for NG9-1-1.
GeoComm’s Don Mitchell, Senior Product Manager for NG9-1-1 Core Services and active member of several NENA workgroups, is excited to participate in the event as an attendee and session presenter. At the event, Don will present along with Brooks Shannon, Vice President of NGCS Product Development at INdigital, at a session titled NG9-1-1 Call Routing: The Policy Routing Function & Beyond. During this session attendees will participate in identifying issues for NENA to address that are related to policy definition, management, and application across NG9-1-1 functional elements.
Presentation Date/Time: Tuesday, January 16 from 2:45 – 4:00 p.m.
Complete Session Description: The Policy Routing Function (PRF) manages call routing policy in the i3 NG9-1-1 architecture. However, other functional elements - like the Emergency Call Routing Function (ECRF) – can define, manage, and apply their own policies to affect call routing. This session explores how policy rules can be defined and how rules from different sources may impact one another. Participants will discuss active real-world policy routing examples and identify topics for further development.
Take the time to attend this presentation and be part of the exciting discussion. GeoComm is a longtime NENA member and committed to partnering with and educating agencies on NG9-1-1 technology advancement. We are excited to take part in the NENA NG9-1-1 Standards and Best Practices Conference, sharing our NG9-1-1 knowledge, experience and passion through our participation.
