Notice of Agency Meeting, 61883 [E7-21545]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 211 / Thursday, November 1, 2007 / Notices On June 15, 2007, the Commission released the VoIP TRS Order, published at 72 FR 43546, August 6, 2007, WC Docket No. 04–36, CG Docket No. 03–123, WT Docket No. 96–198 and CC Docket No. 92–105, FCC 07–110. In the VoIP TRS Order, the Commission extended to providers of interconnected VoIP services the application of its preexisting TRS rules under sections 225 and 255 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. Among other things, the VoIP TRS Order required interconnected VoIP providers to offer 711 abbreviated dialing access to TRS ‘‘to ensure that TRS calls can be made from any telephone, anywhere in the United States, and that such calls will be properly routed to the appropriate relay center.’’ On September 14, 2007, the VON Coalition filed a ‘‘Motion for Stay or Waiver,’’ asking the Commission to stay the effective date of the TRS requirements, including the 711 dialing requirement, as applied to interconnected VoIP providers or, in the alternative, to waive those requirements. On September 21, 2007, USTelecom filed a petition requesting a two-year waiver for interconnected VoIP providers of the requirement that they route emergency 711 calls to a TRS provider capable of determining the appropriate PSAP to call to respond to an emergency. On September 21, 2007, Hamilton—a provider of traditional TRS services in various states—filed a request for waiver of the TRS emergency call handling requirements, as applied to traditional TRS providers’ handling of 711 calls that originate on interconnected VoIP networks. This is a summary of the Commission’s public notice in document DA 07–4178, IP-Enabled Services; Implementation of Sections 255 and 251(a)(2) of The Communications Act of 1934, as Enacted by The Telecommunications Act of 1996: Access to Telecommunications Service, Telecommunications Equipment and Customer Premises Equipment by Persons with Disabilities; Telecommunications Relay Services and Speech-to-Speech Services for Individuals with Hearing and Speech Disabilities; The Use of N11 Codes and other Abbreviated Dialing Arrangements, WC Docket No. 04–36, CG Docket No. 03–123, WT Docket No. 96–198 and CC Docket No. 92–105, adopted October 9, 2007, released October 9, 2007. Document DA 07–4178 also contains a separate order granting in part and denying in part the petitions mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:40 Oct 31, 2007 Jkt 214001 for stay or waiver filed by the VON Coalition, USTelecom, and Hamilton. Pursuant to § 1.1206 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 1.1206, this matter shall be treated as a ‘‘permit-butdisclose’’ proceeding in which ex parte communications are subject to disclosure. Synopsis In document DA 07–4178, the Commission seeks comment on the petitions for stay or waiver filed by the VON Coalition, USTelecom, and Hamilton. In particular, the Commission seeks comment on technical solutions to the ability of interconnected VoIP providers to route all 711 calls to an appropriate relay center—defined as the relay center(s) serving the state in which the caller is geographically located, or the relay center(s) corresponding to the caller’s last registered address—and to the ability of a relay center to identify the appropriate PSAP to call when receiving an emergency call via 711 and an interconnected VoIP service. The Commission expects that interconnected VoIP providers, relay service providers, and members of the industry and community will work closely together to achieve a solution as expeditiously as possible that will enable emergency 711 calls placed through interconnected VoIP providers to be handled in accordance with the Commission’s emergency call handling procedures.
