1 Alabama Next Generation Emergency Network
Roger Wilson, Chair Alabama Wireless Board Alabama Next Generation Emergency Network Introductions

2 Background ALNENA & Wireless Board AL Department of Homeland Security
Partnered on State Plan AL does not have a state office AL Department of Homeland Security Applied for DOT Grant for IP 9-1-1 $950,000 Grant + Local Match = $1.9M 88 ECDs – 85 are ANGEN Partners!

3 Process Wireless Board Appointed ANGEN Committee
ECD / PSAP Representatives Saw Vendor Presentations Developed Specifications for RFP AUM - Center for Advanced Technologies Managed RFP Process Independent Review by Members Did not work together Did not know pricing Selected inetwork Service System Provider ANGEN Committee members reviewed the proposals without discussing with other members. CAT – compiled the evaluations and combined the technical scores with the pricing

4 IP Network Alabama Supercomputer Authority (ASA) ASA Provides
Already had a robust / diverse backbone network Experience in each County with schools ASA Provides Hosting for Core Call Routing Facilities (ACCRF) Huntsville and Montgomery ACCRFs in core network facilities – no connectivity issues Backbone Network between ACCRFs Either ACCRF can carry the state if one fails Last mile connection to PSAPs Internet Connectivity when needed

5 ASA ANGEN Backbone Network
Huntsville Mobile Birmingham Montgomery 10G Atlanta ASA ANGEN Backbone Network Dallas Nashville ACCRF AREN Core Routers Serving Clients Multiple paths to either ACCRF location – One network cut will not isolate PSAPs from ACCRF – either ACCRF can support the entire state A PSAP could be isolated due to a cut – larger PSAPs will purchase a redundant/diverse IP connection before disconnecting from the legacy Selective Router. ACCRF

6 9-1-1 SSP - inetwork Selected via the RFP process Will Provide
9-1-1 Routing / database Services traditionally provided by a LEC

7 ANGEN Phases Phase I Phase II Phase III
Aggregate wireless calls to ANGEN Route to PSAPs via existing Selective Routers Phase II Install IP Connections to PSAPs Some require Legacy PSAP Gateways Begin routing calls via IP to PSAPs Phase III Convert VoIP & other wired carriers When a PSAP is connected via IP to ANGEN their calls will start to use that connection. The transition to IP will occur as PSAPs are connected. May connect to the IP ready PSAPs first – order of connection is not important. Large group of PSAPs are looking at a hosted call taking solution that will use the ANGEN network.

8 End Goal & Benefits All PSAPs connected via IP
Larger PSAPs with redundant/ diverse IP connections All Carriers routing calls to ANGEN Alabama is prepared for NG9-1-1 Immediate Benefits Quicker connection time from Caller to PSAP Transfer calls anywhere in state – no LATA issues Redundant CCRFs (SRs are not redundant now) Re-route calls during disasters / incidents Greatly reduce costs of service Under Benefits – Alabama does not have redundancy at the Selective Router / Tandem level. If a SR fails it will affect all PSAPs served which varies from 7 to 11 PSAPs in a geographic area.
