§ 9.3 Definitions.
ANI. Automatic Number Identification, as such term is defined in § 20.3
of this chapter.
Appropriate local emergency authority. An emergency answering point
that has not been officially designated as a Public Safety Answering
Point (PSAP), but has the capability of receiving 911 calls and either
dispatching emergency services personnel or, if necessary, relaying the
call to another emergency service provider. An appropriate local
emergency authority may include, but is not limited to, an existing
local law enforcement authority, such as the police, county sheriff,
local emergency medical services provider, or fire department.
Automatic Location Information (ALI). Information transmitted while
providing E911 service that permits emergency service providers to
identify the geographic location of the calling party.
CMRS. Commercial Mobile Radio Service, as defined in § 20.3 of this
Interconnected VoIP service. An interconnected Voice over Internet
protocol (VoIP) service is a service that:
(1) Enables real-time, two-way voice communications;
(2) Requires a broadband connection from the user's location;
(3) Requires Internet protocol-compatible customer premises equipment
(4) Permits users generally to receive calls that originate on the
public switched telephone network and to terminate calls to the public
switched telephone network.
PSAP. Public Safety Answering Point, as such term is defined in § 20.3
of this chapter.
Pseudo Automatic Number Identification (Pseudo-ANI). A number,
consisting of the same number of digits as ANI, that is not a North
American Numbering Plan telephone directory number and may be used in
place of an ANI to convey special meaning. The special meaning assigned
to the pseudo-ANI is determined by agreements, as necessary, between
the system originating the call, intermediate systems handling and
routing the call, and the destination system.
Registered Location. The most recent information obtained by an
interconnected VoIP service provider that identifies the physical
location of an end user.
Statewide default answering point. An emergency answering point
designated by the State to receive 911 calls for either the entire
State or those portions of the State not otherwise served by a local
Wireline E911 Network. A dedicated wireline network that:
(1) Is interconnected with but largely separate from the public
switched telephone network;
(2) Includes a selective router; and
(3) Is utilized to route emergency calls and related information to
PSAPs, designated statewide default answering points, appropriate local
emergency authorities or other emergency answering points.
