Abstract

The State of Iowa’s (State) initial 9-1-1 system was developed and implemented around legacy wire line technology more than 25 years ago and was not implemented to facilitate the transmission of text messages and data images such as pictures and video. Consumers are driving the telecommunications landscape and PSAPs need to be able to meet the expectations and accommodate a wider range of communication methods. In addition to receiving wireless and legacy 9-1-1 wire line calls, the public expects PSAPs to handle instant messaging, text messages, telematics (automatic crash notification) and live video feeds.
