TIA Voices Support for Next Generation Text-to-911 Applications that Will Improve Public Safety

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) submitted comments to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in response to its request for comments on the continued evolution of text-to-911 applications, including the delivery of location information and support for text-to-911 when roaming.

TIA strongly supports the FCC’s efforts to comprehensively improve emergency communications and believes that the development of a next generation 911 IP-based network will greatly improve public safety.  In its comment, TIA also stated that it “cautions against regarding the standards development process as a mechanism through which creation of otherwise nonexistent technology functionality can be mandated.”
