                  Standards that Drive the
                  Business of Communications
ATIS Emergency Services
Interconnection Forum (ESIF)

• Mission - 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.
• Membership – ESIF is the primary venue for 40
  telecommunications industry, public safety and other
  stakeholders wherein these organizations generate and
  refine both technical and operational interconnection
  issues to ensure life-saving E9-1-1 services are
  available for everyone in all situations.

Deliverables since GSC 10
•   Emergency Services Messaging Interface Document:
    Contains standards for an Emergency Services interface to the
    Emergency Services Network (ESNet) and specifies the
    protocols and message sets for use in the Emergency
    Services Messaging Interface. The Emergency Services
    Messaging Interface supports a future direction toward a next
    generation emergency services network.
•   Standard Wireless Text Message Case Matrix:
    Generated to address the need for standard wireless text
    messages and seeks to define the various wireless triggers
    and conditions for these standard text messages (e.g., ALI
    cannot communicate with MPC/GMLC, or ALI did not receive a
    response from the MPC/GMLC, etc.). (ATIS-0500005)

       GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications
Deliverables since GSC 10
•   Recommendation for the Use of Confidence and
    Uncertainty for Wireless Phase II:
     ESIF recommendation for managing location confidence and
    uncertainty for Wireless Phase 2 calls. (ATIS-0500004)
•   Routing Number Authority (RNA) for pseudo Automatic
    Number Identification Codes (pANIs) Used for Routing
    Emergency Calls: pANI Assignment Guidelines and
    Contains guidelines and procedures for the assignment and
    use of pANIs Used To Route Emergency Calls, such as E9-1-1
    calls or other types of emergency calls that need to become
    native E9-1-1 calls throughout the North American E9-1-1
    systems (USA & Canada). (ATIS-0500003)

ATIS ESIF and the National
Security Telecommunications
Advisory Committee (NSTAC)
The NSTAC provides industry-based analyses and
recommendations to the U.S. President and executive
branch regarding policy and enhancements to national
security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP)
NSTAC has identified the following areas of work within
ESIF that are critical to Next Generation NS/EP
– Interconnection of E9-1-1/Emergency Services
– PSAP Network Interfaces and Protocol for NGN
– Wireless E9-1-1 Readiness Implementation Plan
– Federal Telecommunications Service Proprietary PSAPs
