I just wanted to keep the WLIA members up to date on some new items that are happening in the NG9-1-1 world.
The first item is the NENA Standard for NG9-1-1 GIS data Model has been published:
This document defines the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Data Model, which supports the NENA Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) Core Services (NGCS) of location validation and routing, both geospatial call routing or to the appropriate agency for dispatch. This model also defines several GIS data layers used in local Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and response agency mapping applications for handling and responding to 9-1-1 calls.
NG9-1-1 GIS Data Model can be found here: https://www.nena.org/page/NG911GISDataModel
The second is DOA has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for ESInet and NG9-1-1 Services:
The purpose of this RFI is to gather information from suppliers to identify solutions for building and managing an Emergency Services Network (ESInet) capable of supporting NG9-1-1 services within the state of Wisconsin. The goal of the RFI is to gather input that will provide the State of Wisconsin, Department of Military Affairs (DMA) accurate information with which to develop specifications and requirements to be used in a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) for the creation, operation, and maintenance of an ESInet that will provide all Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) with the network necessary to implement Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) as directed by 2017 Wisconsin Act 59.
