Winbourne applauds FCC's action on 9-1-1 reliability and resiliency
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) took a major step to improve 9-1-1 availability to the public. The FCC action focused on the improving higher reliability and enhancing continuity of communication networks, including broadband technologies used for 9-1-1 emergency communications. This action will increase the likelihood of callers reaching 9-1-1 in times of emergency. The ruling requires telecommunications infrastructure owners to certify compliance with best practices and routinely audit network elements that are essential for 9-1-1 service, such as path diversity.
This action by the FCC provided a framework for routinely certify those elements of infrastructure that are essential to sustaining and restoring 9-1-1 service. Although., it is understood that there will probably never be 100% availability of the telecommunications infrastructure this decision mandates a clear process for ensuring that will reduce service outages and disruptions through implementing mandatory circuit audits and certification processes. Regular audits and applying best practices will a long way to improve 9-1-1 service during man-made and natural disasters.
The FCC decision was a direct result of the work done by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG) in the aftermath of the Derecho storm in 2012. The decision by the FCC was reached in a 17-month period showing the importance of this issue to the FCC. Winbourne Consulting provided support and assistance in the research and writing of the MWCOG report which can be found at http://www.mwcog.org/store/item.asp?PUBLICATION_ID=453
