Washington State has started a three phase project to update the network used to transfer voice/data information from the consumer to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Washington State’s NG9-1-1 system is being built on an Emergency Services Internet Protocol Network (ESINet) including the migration of Automatic Location Information (ALI) database information to the current standard 4.xx XML format. The ESINet will include, but is not limited to, network, transport, PSAP interfaces, 9-1-1 trunk support, selective routing and ALI interfaces. The grant funds will be used to purchase equipment as part of phase 3. The new/updated equipment will be needed to enable the PSAPs to receive data in more than just a voice format.
