  • The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau extended the deadline for Covered 911 Service Providers to certify compliance with the agency’s 911 Reliability Rules from October 15th to today, October 30th. The rules require entities that provide routing, ALI or ANI services directly to a Public Safety Answering Point to certify annually that they have complied with FCC rules to promote reliability by ensuring (i) diversity in critical 911 circuits, (ii) adequate backup power in certain central offices, and (iii) they can diversely monitor their 911 network.
