Last month, the 911 National Emergency Address Database, LLC released a Request for Proposal to select a vendor to administer the National Emergency Address Database (NEAD). The NEAD will be a national database that registers and stores location information from access points (ex. Wi-Fi hotspots) and beacons (ex. Bluetooth) that can be accessed by wireless service providers to pinpoint the location of a wireless caller in an emergency. The NEAD is critical to implement the 911 wireless location accuracy rules adopted by the FCC earlier this year (Vol XII, Issue 6). Interested parties must confirm their intent to respond to the RFP by November 16 and submit a response to the RFP by December 18.
