I gotta run and coach my kids basketball, but I’ll put this up real quick.
Ars Technica has a write up about the new E911 requirements bill passed by the Senate.
Ars usually does a great job with their analysis, so I won’t bother. My only comment is that congress seems to write Policy without concern for the effort of implementing Procedures. Now that the FCC will have the authority to dictate new requirements, I hope (but I doubt) they will work with companies and technologies to implement this correctly.
OK, so I’m cynical about the government, I’ve worked in it all my life.
EDIT: BTW, just in case some were wondering if this applies to VoIP Security, for my environment, E911 service is a security requirement.
