PSAPs Urged to Make NG 911 Progress

February 14, 2017–An FCC official and the chair of the agency’s Task Force on Optimal Public Safety Answering Point Architecture (TFOPA) urged PSAPs today to utilize the work of the TFOPA in deploying next-generation (NG-911) networks. Tim May, 911 project manager in the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, and TFOPA Chair Steve Souder spoke during a webinar this afternoon that was organized by the National 911 Program. The TFOPA completed its work under its two-year charter in December by adopting three reports from its working groups in an effort to further assist the public safety community and others in transitioning to NG-911 systems (TRDaily, Dec. 2, 2016).
