4 WSP Narrowbanding Project Update to the Washington State Interoperability Executive Committee June 19, 2014

5 WSP Districts 5

6 Project Overview 6 Within Budget Project completion scheduled for November 3, 2015 P25 conventional mode Operational in Districts 3, 4, and 5 700MHz trunking Centered in WSP Districts 1 and 2 All equipment is installed and operational Coverage testing has been completed and maps are being prepared VHF trunking IWN Interzone Link completed Capacity study completed

7 Project Status 7 Activities and Schedule: Dropdown menus on the consoles for conventional resources Motorola has presented a solution to this issue which WSP has tested and approved. Emergency channel marker WSP has the need to broadcast the channel marker on multiple sites over a wide area. Motorola has presented a solution to this issue which WSP has tested and approved. Activities are focused in WSP District 2 (King County) Dispatch consoles 700MHz trunking cutover P25 conventional conversion Training, training, training! Cutover scheduled for early September District 3 implementation of trunking and console changes will follow District 2 cutover.

8 Project Status 8 Outstanding Issues: Coverage complaints WSP is addressing areas with poor coverage through system optimization and in some cases additional base stations. Interoperability with VHF conventional users in trunked areas Several options are being explored. This requirement, and the proposed solution will vary based on the primary area of operation. P25 conventional data operations. FCC Waiver extension

9 Project Status 9 Interoperability Efforts: WSP and Spokane Regional Emergency Communication System (SRECS) developing an Advanced System Key (ASK) sharing agreement. ASK sharing agreement and Inter-subsystem Interconnection (ISSI) agreement between WSP and South Sound 911 in progress. WSP is also partnering on SR410 simulcast VHF project. WSP and Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA) working on cross programming, backup dispatching capabilities, and microwave connectivity. 700MHz Interoperability repeater project in Seattle.

21 2014 DNR Radio Systems Briefing

22 Supporting the wildland fire mission Conventional VHF narrowband land mobile radio 53 Communication Sites, approximately 50% on DNR managed land 83 Base Stations / Repeaters 1,500 Portable Radios 1,100 Mobile Radios 7 Communication Centers (EOCs) – 2 are interagency with Federal agencies S taffing and equipment support for five Washington Incident Management Teams (Type 2) and staffing for national incident response through NWCG

23 Highly interoperable in wildland fire ● National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) approved portable radios and repeaters ● 2 Interagency (USFS/DOI/DNR) communication centers, co-located radios and frequency sharing between partners ● Initial attack agreements (including frequency use) with most County Fire Districts ● National emergency frequency coordination during wildland fire operations

24 Interagency Business Cooperation DNR cooperates and shares resources between state, county and local agencies: ● Subscriber maintenance for Washington State Parks ● “State Repeater” maintenance for Washington DFW ● DNR uses 3 segments of WSP Microwave backhaul - more planned ● Joint effort with WSP to solve digital coverage issues ● Multiple frequency, site and tower sharing agreements with WSP, counties and municipalities

28 28 WA STATE E911 OFFICE ESInet Outage of Timeline (Sequence of events): Approximately 23:50 (9 April) our 911 Outage sequence begins * Approximately 01:55 (10 April) State Emergency Operations Center initiates call to SECO stating that ‘something unusual is happening with 911 Various PSAPs around the state start to get calls from citizens reporting they ‘can’t get through on 911’ … begin to run their normal outage protocols Approximately 06:30-07:00 (10 April) PSAPs begin to report 911 working again Total time of Outage: Officially Reported to be 6 hours, 12 Minutes Total Number of affected 911 attempts: approximately 4300 in Washington State 2 Counties (Garfield and Skamania) reported no issues

31 31 WA STATE E911 OFFICE EO AnalogTDMIP CAMA PSAP 911 Caller 911 Call Takers WHAT DID HAPPEN: CALLS FAIL I’m OK 911 call arrived at LNG that had Englewood (IP-SR) as Primary Call arrived at Englewood IP-SR Eventually (seconds) the call leg between the LNG and the IP-SR timed out and caller was provided with either “busy”, “ringback” or “fast busy” BECAUSE the IP-SR did not realize it was failing (or had failed), it kept sending messages (heartbeats) to the LNG that it was OK. Once problem was determined, LNGs were manually instructed to send traffic only to Miami IP-SR Englewood IP-SR Miami

45 Thursday, June 19, 2014 State Interoperability Executive Committee Additional checklist items: Wireless Contract Vehicles Outreach Plan Potential Barriers –.. With regard to specific legal barriers that may impede our ability to participate fully in the consultation process, without detailed information on the opt-in requirements we can only speculate on barriers. However, significant budget and legislative barriers may exist if the Governor is required to commit to funding. Additionally, with several potential user agencies under the direction of separately elected officials, there may be some barriers to their participation as well as questions about the Governor’s ability to “opt-in” for those agencies.
