 Questions
NG9-1-1
 Today (E9-1-1)
 A PSAP is connected to its service area via analog 911 trunks
 “Enhanced” PSAPs operate on the MSAG, 911 database, and
Selective Router for call delivery and Automatic Location
Identification (ALI).
 Tomorrow (NG9-1-1)
 A PSAP will be connected to its service area via a digital
network infrastructure.
 Calls will be routed to the PSAP based on GIS information
(service boundaries, geodetic coordinates, and civic address
information)
 PIDF-LO will be the replacement to ALI

State of NG9-1-1 Standards
 Standards do exist for “High Level” Design
 “i2” – The bridge between E9-1-1 / Phase I/II to NG9-1-1.
 “i3” – A complete NG9-1-1 environment
 Standards underway to address the details
 ECRF
 LIS
 LVF
 Industry Collaboration Event (ICE) testing has
demonstrated that the design does work

Although still missing some details of implementation
PSAP advantages with NG9-1-1
 Call Set up is immediate
 True Next Generation 9-1-1 will eliminate call setup .



All information related to the call is actually packaged with the call
Eliminate any chance of abandoned calls
Provides advanced information when the call is received.

PSAP Advantage with NG9-1-1
 Database is completely GIS based
 Single point of entry vs. maintaining GIS and MSAG
Eliminates any chance of error between multiple databases
 Mitigates resources
 Eliminates the requirement for personnel to keep up the MSAG
and other databases.
 Mitigates any chance of discrepancies with only one database to
worry about
 Mitigates any chance that a entry is missed or wrong because of
faulty data entry.

PSAP Advantages with NG9-1-1
 Shared Resources will lower costs and provide full
PSAP to PSAP back up
 Mapping, CAD and other resources can be shared
between PSAPs at the server level
 With a Secure IP Network all that is really required
at the PSAP is a server and a telephone.
 With a secure IP network, any given PSAP can
effectively provide coverage for any other PSAP
PSAP Advantages with NG9-1-1
 NEXT GENERATION 9-1-1 will save small
community PSAPs

It will allow them to fully share equipment and database costs
between PSAPs, while retaining local first responder
functionality.



A 24/7 PSAP can back up a PSAP that does not have the resources
or personnel to provide that level of service.
It will lower the costs of database management and provide
full access to county data when they want or need updates.
It will offer the ability to deal with any kind of 9-1-1 call from
any device.
ND Conduciveness for an NG9-1-1 Deployment
 Size
 Population is relatively low, number of service providers is
low, etc.
 State-wide implementation is a realistic goal
 Network
 Network connectivity exists, work to be done to ensure
reliability, identify suitable network
 Data
 Major GIS data collection effort has been authorized
 This GIS data is necessary to replace the MSAG and SR
What can I do to Prepare / Help?
 Embrace change
 Necessary to increase the level of service to the impaired
 Necessary to address new forms of communication
 Necessary to extend the capability of 9-1-1
 Get Educated
 Need to be able to recognize what NG9-1-1 is and what it is not

Any money spent on non-NG9-1-1 items will only slow the process
of NG9-1-1 deployment
 Get Involved
 Once you become familiar with NG9-1-1 it is important that
you provide input
What can I do to Prepare / Help?

 Encourage Participation in the Statewide Seamless
Base Map

Talk to Commissioners, Mayors, Addressing Authorities, GIS
Personnel, etc.
Opportunity to finally capture your local government’s addressing
foundation (if you haven’t already done so).
 NG9-1-1 provides a backup solution in case your PSAP goes down
 Consistent data spread amongst the PSAPs



Identify your addressing problems NOW and resolve them
during the Statewide Seamless Base Map project
Identify a resource you plan to commit to the project to make
sure your county is captured correctly
