1 Emergency Services Workshop UK VoIP 999/112s John Medland – BT 999/112 Policy Manager

2 UK Emergency Service today BT or CW Public Ntwk (PSTN) Other Networks BT or CW Operator Centres PSTN Police 56% Ambulance 35% Fire 8% Coastguard <1% 999/112/ (222 Local Controls) BT – 28m calls, 50% mobile, every call voice + location

3 Handling VoIP 999/112 now Reach Call Centres through PSTN/IP Gateways Identified as VoIP Registered address accessed through tel number Name and address marked as needing confirmation Verbal routing………. Devices/CPE use PSTN/GSM for 999 if possible Key issues for VoIP 112/999 : - provision of 112/999 access - registered name and address data kept up to date (end-user->CP1->CP2 to PSTN and PSAP) - 24 hour VSP contact point for PSAP use (tracing, alternative contacts) - lack of information to PSAP for nomadic users (definition of nomadic) - end user education - how to Automate Location provision………

4 NICC Task Group The Network Interoperabilty Consultative Committee : NICC is a UK telecommunications industry committee which acts as an industry consensus group in which specifications and technical issues associated with network competition can be discussed. It also is a source of advice to the Director General of Telecommunications on the harmonisation of interconnection arrangements Location Task Group : Routing 999/112 for VoIP to correct local EA with VoIP caller location information Membership : ITSPA, ISPA, BT, C&W, Ericssons, Huawei, Andrew, ETSI, Gradwell, Magrathea, Thus, Truphone, IN UK, Virgin Media and Ofcom +…. Approach :- - VSP, ISP and Access Provider(s) all different - Start with DSL and than tackle Cable, WiFI and GSM scenarios - Standards still developing (use wherever possible, eg IETF, ETSI) - Start with UK only (but need to allow for International dimension) - Don’t rely on user - Don’t rely on device (at least for next 2/3 years)

7 Implications Yes, automated routing and location provision is technically feasible (for ADSL case) but will imply :- New requirements on all organisations (systems development) Many more organisations involved to deliver 112 (not just traditional telcos but VSPs and ISPs) New operational components : LIS and VPC New interfaces for all organisations: based on international standards as far as possible (eg IETF HELD) Increased co-op between PSAP and VSP, ISP and Access networks Detailed document is now going through NICC review process …………………..

8 Challenges to adoption ISPs storing and updating association of IP/Line ID/ location at an ISP LIS LIS cascades to access providers and length of response times ANPs storing and updating association of (IP)Line IDs/ location at ANP LIS Challenging business cases (!) unless regulatory driven Current regulatory responsibility unclear when several CPs and an ISP involved

9 Further Challenges National solutions are being developed National solutions will need to evolve to cover international IP roamers Long transition periods with hybrid TDM/IP services Multimedia calls : all organisations need clear 112 requirements driven by users (112Net?)

10 Next Steps Next Steps :- - Finalise basic architecture and BB ADSL scenario detail - Continued work on other UK scenarios (Cable, LLU, Private networks) - International Scenarios - IP end-to-end (as NGN, PSAP +device capabilities become clear)
