highlights 2
Highlights (2)
  • Citizen-to-Authority (E911, NOVES)
    • Focus on NG911 (e.g., NGN/IMS and Location Parameter Acquisition, Conveyance Architecture, and Protocols) and various near term/legacy matters (e.g., routing number administration for VoIP and wireless, NG Messaging to NG911)
    • Non-voice Emergency Services for those with special needs and for the general public
  • Authority-to-Citizen (EAS, CMAS, ENS)
    • Focus on emergency notification standards support for various technologies:
      • IPTV EAS requirements and metadata
      • Wireless CMAS functions and interfaces:
        • Common aspects (i.e., Gov-to-Service Provider [gateway-to-gateway] interface, and mobile device behavior) done in collaboration with TIA
        • GSM/UMTS/LTE specific aspects
      • Wireline ENS best practices
  • Authority-to-Authority (ETS)
    • Focus on supporting ETS for NGN VoIP and Data services
      • NGN/IMS Core Network Requirements
      • Wireline Access Network Requirements
      • ETS service description (including End-to-end call flows), authentication, and security standards/recommendations
      • Gap requirements brought to the IETF and 3GPP, where appropriate

strategic direction
Strategic Direction
  • Work in response to regulatory mandates and statutory changes
  • Work proactively with DHS/NCS to define Industry Requirements and Standards in support of ETS
  • Work proactively to support Public Safety needs
    • Public Safety Endorsement of LTE for 700MHz broadband
  • Work proactively to support non-voice emergency services to NG911 PSAPs
  • Focus on regional needs (North America) and in coordination with global directions
  • Coordinate/collaborate with other organizations where appropriate (e.g., 3GPP, TIA, ITU, IETF, NENA, etc.)

Geneva, 13-16 July 2009

Working at the nexus where law, regulation, technology, social trends, and standards come together

Delivering standards to satisfy aggressive regulatory mandate target dates such that reliable implementations can be deployed (per target dates)

Regarding E911, the NG911 standards can get far ahead of deployments given that there are 6,000+ PSAPs and there are generally different deployment timeframes

Messaging to NG911 is receiving significant interest

Regarding CMAS, develop a testing specification for the interface with the Federal Government, and possible resulting impacts on standards (i.e., alert aggregation, system upgrades, testing, human behavior, etc.)

Regarding NOVES, anticipate the requirements of both users with special needs and the general public, develop a reliable solution that does not have the limitations of SMS, and define the interface to the PSAPs

Regarding ETS, providing priority routing/processing for NGN Services, including data services (e.g., messaging, email, etc.), enhanced authentication, authentication assurance, security and Identity Management


Geneva, 13-16 July 2009

Complete currently defined work program

Continue appropriate changes to current standards suite

Continue to proactively support Public Safety stakeholder needs

Respond (at appropriate time) to additional Public Safety and FCC regulations (e.g., regarding NG911 and NOVES to NG911)

Continue supporting DHS/NCS ETS service requirements in the technical standards committes/forums

Continue with cross-organizational coordination and collaboration

Continue with Emergency Services Coordination Workshops (Citizen-to-Authority)

Participate in Government CMAS Stakeholder Forum

Next Steps/Actions

Geneva, 13-16 July 2009

No changes proposed to existing Resolution (GSC-14/2) at this time.

Proposed Resolution

overview of emergency communications work in atis
Overview of Emergency Communications Work in ATIS

ATIS committee work is in support of initiatives by:

FCC/Federal government

Regional/State governments and

Local governments

ATIS committees also act as a feeder group to the ITU-T in support of international general emergency communication services

atis involvement with fcc cmas
ATIS Involvement with FCC – CMAS

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commercial Mobile Service Alert Advisory Committee (CMSAAC)

ATIS was a member of the FCC advisory committee, which completed in October 2007

Advisory Committee recommendations was the basis for the FCC rules for CMAS

ATIS is working closely with the government (DHS, FEMA) on the development of an interface specification to the Federal Alert Gateway

Standards work complete, now developing a testing specification

committee forum mission scope
Committee/Forum Mission/Scope

Emergency Services Interconnection Forum (ESIF):ESIF provides a venue to facilitate the identification and resolution of technical and/or operational issues related to the interconnection of emergency services networks with other networks (e.g., wireline, cable, satellite, Internet, etc.).

Industry Numbering Committee (INC):INC provides an open forum to address and resolve industry-wide issues associated with planning, administration, allocation, assignment and use of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) numbering resources within the NANP area.

committee forum mission scope1
Committee/Forum Mission/Scope

Next Generation Interconnection Interoperability Forum (NGIIF):The NGIIF addresses next-generation network interconnection and interoperability issues associated with emerging technologies. Specifically, it develops operational procedures which involve the network aspects of architecture, disaster preparedness, installation, maintenance, management, reliability, routing, security, and testing between network operators. In addition, the NGIIF addresses issues which impact the interconnection of existing and next generation networks and facilitate the transition to emerging technologies.

committee forum mission scope2
Committee/Forum Mission/Scope

IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF):The IIF enables the interoperability, interconnection, and implementation of IPTV systems/services by developing ATIS standards and facilitating related technical activities. This forum will place an emphasis on North American and ATIS Member Company needs in coordination with other regional and international standards development organizations.

Wireless Technologies and Systems Committee (WTSC):WTSC develops and recommends standards and technical reports related to wireless and/or mobile services and systems, including service descriptions and wireless technologies. WTSC develops and recommends positions on related subjects under consideration in other North American, regional and international standards bodies.

committee forum mission scope3
Committee/Forum Mission/Scope

Packet Technologies and Systems Committee (PTSC):PTSC develops and recommends standards related to services, architectures, and signaling, in addition to related subjects under consideration in other North American and international standards bodies.

Telecom Management and Operations Committee (TMOC):TMOC develops operations, administration, maintenance and provisioning standards, and other documentation related to Operations Support System (OSS) and Network Element (NE) functions and interfaces for communications networks - with an emphasis on standards development related to U.S.A. communication networks in coordination with the development of international standards.
