ATIS RFI - Request for Information Scope

Network operators are planning for the eventual phase-out of copper facilities, PSTN-based services, and traditional power arrangements; migrating to an IP-based network architecture, increasingly reliant upon commercial power. The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) is seeking input from all stakeholders in identifying how to meet critical public safety-related needs during this complex migration to new IP-based media alternatives.

About this RFI:
This PSRA-TF Request for Information (RFI) solicits input from key stakeholders, including associations, service providers, manufacturers, and public safety organizations to:
  1. Develop an overall picture of solutions for public safety related applications in the all IP-transition;
  2. Provide a catalogue summarizing currently-available solutions,  with the goal of providing an array of alternative solutions for specific applications; and
  3. Identify roadblocks and challenges that highlight areas that lack technical solutions.

Submitters are asked to provide architectural descriptions and diagrams of existing and near-term planned solutions, and are invited to submit any marketing information they wish to share. The information submitted via this RFI will be used to develop a report and a catalogue of solutions that will be made publically available to assist the public safety industry during the transition to IP-based technologies.
