  • The Commission voted to adopt a geospatial routing Notice of Inquiry (“NOI”) at their March Open Meeting. As we previously reported (Vol. XV, Issue 11), the NOI aims at reducing the number of wireless 911 calls routed to incorrect PSAPs. Such mistakes often result in significant delays in dispatching aid. In the NOI, the FCC seeks comment on whether a transition from tower-based to location-based routing is the best solution. Comments are due May 7, 2018 and reply comments are due June 21, 2018.
