Next Generation 9-1-1

There is more and more news about Next Generation 9-1-1 coming out and yesterday FCC chairman Julius Genachowski announced a five-step plan with a first step being focused on “automatic location accuracy mechanisms.” In addition, NG 9-1-1 is integrating multimedia communication (text, video, photos) so you can actually “show” the dispatcher that your house is on fire. Collaboration on NG 9-1-1 implementation between public and private entities is beginning to take shape such as a project undertaken by the University of Maryland and TeleCommunications Systems, Inc. for standards development.
