VoIP E911 Rulemaking

The Federal Communications Commission recently released the text of a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in PS Docket No 07-114 and CC Docket No. 94-102, wherein it requests comments on proposed regulations designed to tighten enhanced 911 (“E911”) accuracy and reliability standards for interconnected VoIP and wireless services. If the FCC adopts the proposed regulations, Interconnected VoIP and wireless service providers will face even more stringent technical and regulatory requirements for provisioning service to the public, particularly with regard to “nomadic” VoIP services – i.e., VoIP services that can be accessed from locations other than the primary registered location.
