Telecom News Bytes – 22-03-30 – NTIA’s Jay English Opens IWCE with Message on NG911 Promises and Challenges

“I’m not going to buy the refrigerator that can call 911, but what about a fire alarm?” asked Jay English during a conference kickoff session Monday for the IWCE 2022 event in Las Vegas. With the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) and other emerging technologies, emergency managers are rightfully considering the ability for their 911 systems to connect effectively with disparate operating systems owned by the general public and other stakeholder entities, according to English, who is the next-generation 911 (NG911) technical advisor for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) Office of Public Safety Communications.
