Fofana, Mustapha S.
The focus of this project was to determine the feasibility of a ubiquitous, reliable, IP-enabled Next Generation 911 (NG911) infrastructure. A detailed investigation was conducted in order to determine the limitations of both the existing emergency architecture. Germane legislation was then analyzed to determine the constraints of any new proposed architecture. Additionally, past proposals to expand the functionality and reliability of the E911 networks were evaluated. Lastly, the feasibility of an NG911 architecture leveraging existing technology was determined.
