Public Safety Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Roundtable for Organizations Interested in Utilization of VoIP for Communication Between Public Safety Personnel
The Office of Law Enforcement Standards (OLES), in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security's Office of Interoperability and Compatibility (DHS/OIC) and representatives of the public safety community, will hold a public working group on April 7-11, 2008, at the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) in Boulder, CO. The purpose of the first three days of the meeting (April 7-10, 2008) is to bring manufacturers together to establish Voice over IP (VoIP) connectivity between radio communication system bridging devices. The purpose of the last two days of the working group is to discuss the development of an enhanced implementation profile for VoIP between radio system bridging solutions. The results of this and subsequent roundtable discussions will be used in the development of specific implementation profiles for VoIP usage in public-safety owned systems. There is no charge for the roundtable; however, because of meeting room restrictions, advance registration is mandatory and limited to three representatives from any one organization. There will be no on- site, same-day registration. The registration deadline is April 1, 2008. Please note registration and admittance instructions and other additional information under the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice.
Technology Innovation Program
The Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), United States Department of Commerce, requests comments on proposed regulations which implement the Technology Innovation Program (TIP). The proposed rule prescribes policies and procedures for the award of financial assistance (grants and/or cooperative agreements) under TIP. In addition, NIST is revising the heading of Subchapter K of its regulations to accurately reflect the current contents of that subchapter.
