T3 Webinars are brought to you by the ITS Professional Capacity Building Program (ITS PCB) at the U.S. Department of Transportation's (USDOT) ITS Joint Program Office, Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA)

Slide 1:  U.S. DOT Next Generation 9-1-1 Project: A National Framework and Deployment Plan

Summit for Large Cities
Chicago, IL — May 21, 2009

Slide 2:  Today's 9-1-1 System — Timeline

[This is a drawing of the timeline of the 9-1-1 System starting with basic 9-1-1 in 1968 and advancing to the current system, which includes Voice Over IP.]

Slide 3:  Today’s 9-1-1 versus NG9-1-1

Today's 9-1-1 Next Generation 9-1-1
Virtually all calls are voice callers via telephones over analog lines. Voice, text, or video information, from many types of communication devices, sent over IP networks
Most information transferred via voice Advanced data sharing is automatically performed
Callers routed through legacy selective routers, limited forwarding / backup ability Physical location of PSAP becomes immaterial, callers routed automatically based on geographic location, enhanced backup abilities
Limited ability to handle overflow situations, callers could receive a busy signal PSAPs able to control call congestion treatment, including dynamically rerouting callers

Slide 4:  USDOT NG9-1-1 Project


A research and development project, funded by the USDOT's Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO), that defined a NG9-1-1 system architecture and developed a transition plan that considered responsibilities, costs, schedule and benefits for deploying Internet Protocol (IP)-based emergency communications across the nation.

Long Term Goal:

To enable the general public to make a 9-1-1 "call" (any real-time communication — voice, text, or video) from any wired, wireless, or IP-based device, and allow the emergency services community to take advantage of advanced call delivery and other functions through new internetworking technologies based on open standards.

Slide 5:  The Need For NG9-1-1

Slide 6:  Consensus within the 9-1-1 Community

Leveraged stakeholders throughout the community to build consensus

Capitalize on advances in technologies that provide:

Slide 7:  NG9-1-1 Project Successes

Slide 8:  Scope of the Proof of Concept

At NO time during the POC were 'live' calls used.

[This slide shows a snapshot of the software used to demonstrate the NG 9-1-1 System's Proof of Concept. The snapshot demonstrates caller information, emergency information and a picture of a caller. This shows how the software would work.]

Slide 9:  Transition Planning

[This slide contains an "illustrative" chart that lists the parties responsible for transitioning to NG 9-1-1. The parties include the federal and state governments and 9-1-1 authorities.]

Slide 10:  NG9-1-1 Initiative Documents Available


[This slide contains a list of NG 9-1-1 initiative documents available as well as a picture of the cover of the NG 9-1-1 System Initiative.]

Slide 11:  Final Task: Procurement Tool Kit

Slide 12:  Results and Conclusions

Slide 13:  National 9-1-1 Implementation Coordination Office (ICO)

[This slide contains logos of the agencies that are a part of the Nation 9-1-1 Implementation Coordination Office (ICO). These agencies are Emergency Management Services, National Highway Traffic Safety Association, US Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Association, and Implementation 911 Coordination Office.]
