E911 Technology Standards


The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet. It is open to any interested individual. The goal of the IETF is to make the Internet work better. The mission of the IETF is to produce high quality, relevant technical and engineering documents that influence the way people design, use, and manage the Internet in such a way as to make the Internet work better. These documents include protocol standards, best current practices, and informational documents of various kinds. The actual technical work of the IETF is done in its working groups, which are organized by topic into several areas (e.g., routing, transport, security, etc.). IETF working groups focusing on IP-based Emergency Calling Standards and protocols, in which RedSky participates, include the Session Initiation Protocol SIP) Working Group (WG), the Geographic Location/Privacy (GEOPRIV) WG, and the Emergency Context Resolution with Internet Technologies (ECRIT) WG.
