RE: VoIP E911 - was: Telecom Collapse?
I would agree on that, my voip setup at my house took several faxes back and forth to the provider to get it working right. Then it took a week for the 911 dispatch center to actually see my address as correct when I placed test calls. -----Original Message----- From: Jeremy Jackson [mailto:jerj@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, December 04, 2008 7:22 AM To: Mike Lyon Cc: nanog@xxxxxxxxx Subject: VoIP E911 - was: Telecom Collapse? With one provider in Canada at least, the E911 address to phone number registration is a large bureaucratic manual process, likely involving fax machines. Meanwhile, the ILEC presumably has an address in a database for the loop... So, I wonder about more direct access to PSAPs by CLEC, anywhere from dark fibre to database API?
