CRTC approves plan for VoIP E911, battle rages on interim processes
The CRTC has approved a plan to deploy VoIP E911 capability across Canada. On September 21, the commission agreed with a report from the CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee Emergency Services Working Group (ESWG) regarding nomadic VoIP technical and operating impediments to delivering 911 and E911. The ESWG now has six months to develop and file with the CRTC a functional architecture for implementing VoIP E911 service in Canada. "The commission considers that this architecture should be consistent with the NENA i2 standard, modified as necessary for implementation in Canada, and that it should include a timeline for the implementation of the key deliverable elements," reads Telecom Decision 2006-60. NENA is the National Emergency Numbering Association, which is charged with addressing emergency numbering challenges, including VoIP 911.
