Fostering worldwide interoperability 2 Highlights (1) 2 Geneva, July 2009 General EC TypesN. America ExampleATIS Standards Role* Citizen-to-AuthorityE911E911 for wireless, VoIP, NGN, NG911 – in ESIF, PTSC, WTSC, NIIF, INC, PRQC Authority-to-CitizenEmergency Alert System (EAS); Commercial Mobile Alert Service (CMAS); Emergency Notification System (ENS) EAS for IPTV – in IIF; CMAS and ENS for wireless – in WTSC; ENS – for wireline voice in NIIF, PTSC Authority-to- Authority ETS (Priority Services in support of National Security & Emergency Preparedness) ETS – in PTSC, PRQC, WTSC, NIIF and TMOC * See Supplementary Slides (11-14) for details regarding these ATIS committees
Fostering worldwide interoperability 3 Highlights (2) Citizen-to-Authority (E911) Focus on NG911 (e.g., NGN/IMS and Location Parameter Acquisition, Conveyance Architecture, and Protocols) and various near term/legacy matters (e.g., routing number administration for VoIP and wireless, NG Messaging to NG911) Authority-to-Citizen (EAS, CMAS, ENS) Focus on emergency notification standards support for various technologies: IPTV EAS requirements and metadata Wireless CMAS functions and interfaces: Common aspects (i.e., Gov-to-Service Provider [gateway- to-gateway] interface, and mobile device behavior) done in collaboration with TIA GSM/UMTS/LTE specific aspects Wireline ENS best practices Authority-to-Authority (ETS) Focus on ETS for NGN and VoIP and Data (incremental standards and standards changes) ETS service and security standards/recommendations in both ATIS and ITU 3 Geneva, July 2009
Fostering worldwide interoperability 4 Strategic Direction Work in response to regulatory mandates and statutory changes Work proactively with DHS/NCS to define Industry Requirements and Standards in support of ETS Work proactively to support Public Safety needs Public Safety Endorsement of LTE for 700MHz broadband Focus on regional needs (North America) and in coordination with global directions Coordinate/collaborate with other organizations where appropriate (e.g., 3GPP, TIA, ITU, IETF, NENA, etc.) 4 Geneva, July 2009
Fostering worldwide interoperability 55 Geneva, July 2009 Working at the nexus where law, regulation, technology, social trends, and standards come together Delivering standards to satisfy aggressive regulatory mandate target dates such that reliable implementations can be deployed (per target dates) Regarding E911, the NG911 standards can get far ahead of deployments given that there are 6,000+ PSAPs and there are generally different deployment timeframes Messaging to NG911 is receiving significant interest Regarding CMAS, development of an interface document to the Federal Government, and possible resulting impacts on standards (i.e., alert aggregation, system upgrades, testing, human behavior, etc.) Regarding ETS, providing priority routing/processing for NGN Services, including data services (e.g., messaging, , etc.), enhanced authentication, authentication assurance, and Identity Management Challenges
Fostering worldwide interoperability 66 Geneva, July 2009 Complete currently defined work program Continue appropriate changes to current standards suite Continue to proactively support Public Safety stakeholder needs Respond (at appropriate time) to additional Public Safety and FCC regulations (e.g., regarding NG911 and Messaging to NG911) Continue with cross-organizational coordination and collaboration Continue with Emergency Services Coordination Workshops (Citizen-to-Authority) Participate in Government CMAS Stakeholder Forum Next Steps/Actions

Fostering worldwide interoperability 9 Overview of Emergency Communications Work in ATIS ATIS committee work is in support of initiatives by: FCC/Federal government Regional/State governments and Local governments ATIS committees also act as a feeder group to the ITU-T in support of international general emergency communication services
Fostering worldwide interoperability 10 ATIS Involvement with FCC – CMAS Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commercial Mobile Service Alert Advisory Committee (CMSAAC) ATIS was a member of the FCC advisory committee, which completed in October 2007 Advisory Committee recommendations was the basis for the FCC rules for CMAS ATIS is working closely with the government (DHS, FEMA) on the development of an interface specification to the Federal Alert Gateway
Fostering worldwide interoperability 11 Committee/Forum Mission/Scope Emergency Services Interconnection Forum (ESIF): The mission of ESIF is to provide a forum to facilitate the identification and resolution of technical and/or operational issues related to the interconnection of wireline, wireless, cable, satellites, Internet and emergency services networks. Industry Numbering Committee (INC): INC is a standing committee of the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) that provides an open forum to address and resolve industry-wide issues associated with planning, administration, allocation, assignment and use of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) numbering resources within the NANP area. IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF): The IIF enables the interoperability, interconnection, and implementation of IPTV systems/services by developing ATIS standards and facilitating related technical activities. This forum will place an emphasis on North American and ATIS Member Company needs in coordination with other regional and international standards development organizations.
Fostering worldwide interoperability 12 Committee/Forum Mission/Scope Network Interconnection Interoperability Forum (NIIF): NIIF provides an open forum to encourage the discussion and resolution, on a voluntary basis, of industry-wide issues associated with telecommunications network interconnection and interoperability which involve network architecture, management, testing and operations and facilitates the exchange of information concerning these topics. Network Performance, Reliability, & QoS Committee (PRQC): PRQC Develops and recommends standards related to the performance, reliability, and associated security aspects of communications networks, as well as the processing of voice, audio, data, image, and video signals, and their multimedia integration.
Fostering worldwide interoperability 13 Committee/Forum Mission/Scope Packet Technologies and Systems Committee (PTSC): Mission - Develops and recommends standards related to services, architectures, and signaling, in addition to related subjects under consideration in other North American and international standards bodies. Telecom Management and Operations Committee (TMOC): TMOC develops operations, administration, maintenance and provisioning standards, and other documentation related to Operations Support System (OSS) and Network Element (NE) functions and interfaces for communications networks - with an emphasis on standards development related to U.S.A. communication networks in coordination with the development of international standards.
Fostering worldwide interoperability 14 Committee/Forum Mission/Scope Wireless Technologies and Systems Committee (WTSC): WTSC develops and recommends standards and technical reports related to wireless and/or mobile services and systems, including service descriptions and wireless technologies. WTSC develops and recommends positions on related subjects under consideration in other North American, regional and international standards bodies.
