FCC Seeks Comment on E911 “Roadmap”


The Federal Communications Commission has issued a Public Notice seeking comment on the “Roadmap for Improving E911 Location Accuracy” filed earlier this week by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO), the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.  The FCC seeks comment on whether the Roadmap presents a reasonable alternative, in whole or in part, to the FCC’s proposed location accuracy rules, and whether the FCC should incorporate specific elements of the Roadmap into the rules it ultimately adopts.  The Commission also asked for comment on the potential applicability of the Roadmap elements to wireless carriers other than the Roadmap signatories.  Comments are due December 10 and reply comments are due December 17.
