The request from OIC germinated from practitioner-raised issues related to VoIP-enabled solutions being marketed to the public safety community as an ‘‘interoperability solution,’’ yet these solutions will not interoperate with VoIP-enabled solutions from other manufacturers making the same claim. The proper way to address this situation PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12393 is to develop a protocol implementation profile (or set of profiles) that contains the minimum standards, parameters and values necessary to ensure that solutions developed by independent organizations will interoperate with each other.
