Re: [802SEC] NG911 Standards Discussion

I would be happy to talk to you tomorrow, April 17 at 10:00 AM PDT (1:00 PM EDT).
It shouldn't take long.
What I expect to tell you is that the focused E911 in IEEE 802 under P802.23 ceased in July of 2011. There may be further E911 activity in IEEE 802 but it will not take place on a centralized basis.

Best regards,
    Geoff Thompson
    Ex-Chair P802.23

Mr. Thompson,

One of the main areas of focus for the National 911 Program ( is support for standards development in Next Generation 911. Managed by the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the National 911 Program recognizes the importance of encouraging system interoperability and emergency data sharing, through standards development and adoption.

Currently, the National 911 Program is developing a document that brings together and describes the major standards development efforts underway that are most important to the 911/Next Generation 911 community. The purpose of this document is to act as a comprehensive list of all relevant NG911 standards currently available, as a follow up to a similar document created in 2011.

As part of our support to the National 911 Program, our team is interviewing Next Generation 911 stakeholders, gathering information on the status and progress of NG911 standards. As someone who is a member of, or participates in, IEEE we would like to schedule a conference call with you, to discuss IEEE's current efforts and future plans with NG911 standards, with an emphasis on the following:

· Progress on existing NG911 standards

· Plans to develop additional NG911 standards

· Areas where additional work toward NG911 standards is needed

Please note that our efforts are part of open source research. We recognize that you may not necessarily represent the official position of the organization, or that you are speaking on behalf of the organization. However, your insight and experience with the organization and their current activities will help as we describe the state of the NG911 standards community.

As you know, the successful implementation of NG911 will require the development and adoption of many standards. This meeting, in addition to the information gathered from other SDOs, will help to provide a better understanding of the existing and planned standards across the SDO community. The result of this work will be published on the National 911 Program's website (

If you could, please confirm your availability for one-hour during this week (week of April 16^nd ) or next week (week of April 23^rd ), we will schedule a time to meet via conference call, and I will provide dial-in information. Please feel free to forward this invitation to any additional members within IEEE whom you feel would benefit or add to this discussion. We look forward to speaking with you.
