Re: CRTC Staff Report on Wireless Carriers’ 9-1-1 Caller Location Accuracy Performance
Dear Mr. Kellet:
The purpose of this letter is to provide the CISC Emergency Services Working Group (ESWG) with the CRTC staff report on wireless carriers’ 9-1-1 caller location accuracy performance, pursuant to the monitoring process established in Telecom Decision 2015-225Footnote 1.
In an effort to improve the location accuracy for wireless enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) calls, in Telecom Decision 2015-255, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) established a wireless E9-1-1 caller location accuracy monitoring process (“monitoring process”). As part of this monitoring process, wireless carriers were required to submit to the CRTC by 31 August 2015, their individual wireless E9-1-1 caller location accuracy performance results (“the results”) for the initial measurement period of 1 May to 31 July 2015. These results were filed with the CRTC in confidence.
As set out in the above-mentioned process, Commission staff was to subsequently aggregate the confidential individual company results and submit aggregated results to the ESWG so that it may review and analyse the aggregated results and provide recommendations, as appropriate, to the CRTC.
As such, an English version of the report is attached. A French version of the report will be submitted to the ESWG shortly.
