RE: CRTC Staff Report on Wireless Carriers’ 9-1-1 Caller Location Accuracy Performance
Dear Mr. Kellett:
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 2015-225.Footnote1
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 29 February 2016, their individual wireless E9-1-1 caller location accuracy performance results (“the results”) for Period 2, the second measurement period of 1 August 2015 to 31 January 2016. These results were filed with the CRTC in confidence.
As set out in the above-mentioned process, Commission staff has subsequently aggregated the confidential individual company results and hereby submits the aggregated results to the ESWG so that it may review and analyse these 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.
