FCC Internet Policy WG to hold VoIP 911/E911 summit on March 18th, 2004


"On Thursday, March 18, 2004, the FCC�s Internet Policy Working Group (IPWG)
will hold the first in a series of a �Solutions Summits� at which leaders in
government and industry can discuss creative ways to address policy issues
that arise as communications services move to Internet-based platforms. The
initial meeting will focus on 911/E911 issues, and on the particular
challenges and opportunities created for emergency services in expanding
911/E911 access to VoIP users and increasing the use of IP technologies in
emergency services networks"

This will be one of the first public discussions of 911/E911 issues for VoIP
which includes both public safety and US telecomm regulatory officials.
