Ng9 1 1 interop testing background

NG9-1-1 Interop Testing - Background

The transition to NG9-1-1 is a complicated thing

Many stakeholders; government, industry, standards development organizations (SDOs)

Will of necessity be multi-vendor

Legal, funding, standards progress of little import if equipment, software and systems do not interoperate as planned

Limited testing on case-by-case, customer-by-customer, vendor-by-vendor has taken place, however…

Common interoperability test program, with level playing field for all to test, learn, and further develop accordingly, is needed

NENA recognized need to provide such an environment

Industry Collaboration Events (ICE) grew out of NENA NG Partner Program

NENA established ICE to:

…create an environment where all vendors can test with other vendors efficiently, cost effectively, and on a level playing field


What is ice

What is ICE?

Industry Collaboration Events

A series of events held under the auspices of NENA, organized by a representatives from all stakeholder groups, that will allow vendors of Next Generation 9-1-1 products to develop and test the interoperability of their systems with those from other vendors.


Ice program benefits

ICE Program Benefits

For Vendors:

Provide a convenient, cost-effective, & safe forum for vendors to test and develop with other vendors

For Customers:

Reduce implementation risks & achieve NG9-1-1 benefits – Gain Confidence

For the NG9-1-1 transition:

Promote a consistent, nationwide, open, standards-based implementation


Ice program highlights

ICE Program Highlights

Completely voluntary

Guided by a steering committee with representatives from all stakeholder groups

ICE1 focused on the core of the NG9-1-1 network (i.e. i3)

Upcoming ICE2 dedicated to testing transition elements

Based on the standards work being done in NENA, ATIS/ESIF, IETF, TIA and other SDOs

ICE1 took place the w/o November 2, 2009 at Texas A&M

ICE2 is scheduled for w/o May 24, 2010 @ AT&T, Irving, TX

ICE is intended to be a multi-step series of events:

Future ICE event themes tentatively set (see NENA website)

Envisioned as ongoing NG9-1-1 interoperability test program

Next ICE (ICE-8) dedicated to recording & logging technologies


Ice governance organization

ICE Governance & Organization

To guide and oversee the ICE process, NENA established the ICE Steering Committee (SC)

Steering Committee made up of stakeholders from a broad cross section of the industry.

Policy setting body for ICE events: content, frequency, goals, participant invitation, etc.

To further manage event SC in turn created two operational committees:

The Event Planning Committee

Charged with managing all aspects of planning and conducting the event.

Composed solely of representatives of companies that have agreed to participate in the initial event

The Data Gathering and Reporting Committee

Charged with capturing important outcomes from the event and reporting the data out to government buyers, consultants, standards development

Committee is open to anyone that wishes to participate

This organizational setup was reviewed after ICE-1 for effectiveness and retained, for now


Overview of ice 1

Overview of ICE-1

Date/Location:

November 2- 5, 2009

Texas A&M University ITEC Lab, College Station, TX

Scope:

Both bilateral and multi-vendor test scenarios were run:

Each with a defined architecture and list of vendor participants

Testing call flow and interface standards

Focused on NG9-1-1 components; transition & legacy interfaces postponed to ICE-2

Data gathered/reporting focused in two areas:

Gathered data regarding the status of underlying standards

Gathered data regarding the interfaces that were tested

External reporting limited:

Information about the state of standards was made available to all affected standards development organizations

In addition, a summary of the event was made generally available


Ice 1 elements tested

ICE-1 – Elements Tested

Intelligent End Point (NG-capable SIP client)

Access Network (Legacy or VoIP)

 NG9-1-1 Network (e.g. ESRP)

 NG9-1-1 Databases

Location Information Server (LIS)

LoST Server (Emergency Call Routing Function, ECRF)

NG9-1-1 PSAP

Border Control Function (BCF)

Logging Services – ICE-1 will focus on Voice recording.

Master Clock source- Interface

Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD)

Mapping Services/GIS


Overview of ice 2

Overview of ICE-2

Date/Location:

May 24 – 27, 2010

AT&T Center for Learning, Irving, TX

Scope:

Bilateral and multi-vendor test scenarios will be run:

Each with a defined architecture and list of vendor participants

Testing call flow and interface standards

Focused on transition & legacy interfaces and equipment

Two separate scenarios, dedicated to different transition architectures/standards

Scenario 1: NENA i3 transition elements

Scenario 2: ATIS RFAI transition elements

Data to gathering/reporting approach similar to ICE-1

External reporting will continue to be limited, as in ICE-1


Ice 2 elements tested

ICE-2 – Elements Tested

Same elements as in ICE-1, with a few additions, specific to transition:

Legacy Network Gateways (including subcomponents)

PIF, LIF, NIF

Legacy PSAP Gateways

IP Selective Router (Scenario 2)

Legacy Selective Router Gateways (Scenario 2)


Ice 1 architecture interfaces

ICE-1 – Architecture & Interfaces


Ice 2 architecture interfaces scenario 1

ICE-2 – Architecture & InterfacesScenario 1


Ice 2 scope of call handling tests

ICE-2 – Scope of Call Handling Tests


Overview of future ice topics

Overview of Future ICE Topics

ICE 3 - Location Related Issues

ICE 4 - Call Routing Based on LoST Hierarchy

ICE 5 - Emergency Services for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Community

ICE 6 - Individual NG9-1-1 Element Testing 

ICE 7 - Supplemental Data

ICE 8 - Recording and Logging Devices

These events may overlap or be held in non-numerical sequence
