In response to the Federal Communications Commission’s revised E9-1-1
compliance requirements, CommScope,
a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communication networks,
is offering wireless operators a suite of new services.
The new CommScope E9-1-1
Compliance Testing Services, part of the Andrew Solutions Network
Applications portfolio, include together or separately:
Analysis of existing maintenance test records
Drive-testing in selected counties to determine existing location
Engineering recommendations for bringing networks into compliance
“The FCC made significant revisions in September 2010 to the rules for
compliance in reporting wireless E9-1-1 caller location accuracy, which
wireless operators must achieve when locating emergency callers,” said
Karl Kessenich, director, Wireless Network Solutions, CommScope. “We
have helped operators deploy E9-1-1 networks and meet FCC requirements
since 2001, and we expect our decade of experience will be evident in
the new compliance testing services.”
The new FCC regulations require county-level instead of state-level
reporting when determining E9-1-1 compliance. The FCC has established a
series of milestones that operators need to meet along the way to full
compliance. The first milestone, coming in January 2012, requires
wireless operators to demonstrate that they are on the path to full
compliance. CommScope believes its new E9-1-1 Compliance Testing
Services will help operators determine their current level of compliance
and how they can meet this requirement.
In addition to the testing and compliance services, CommScope offers a
suite of location solutions that enables operators to transform their
location-passive networks into reliable environments that are fully
location-enabled. The GeoLENs®
product line of location solutions brings together the elements needed
to locate almost any user across networks and relay that information to
emergency service providers and location-based service applications that
enable new value-added services. GeoLENs location system products offer
operators cost efficiencies, capacity and algorithm enhancements, and
greater technology integration to address commercial and regulatory
applications in an era of rapidly evolving networks, devices, and
customer usage requirements.
