Abstract This document addresses the ten requirements specified in the NET 911 Improvement Act and provides additional information to identify and analyze 9-1-1 system migration issues and assess potential options to resolve them. It draws heavily from the USDOT NG9-1-1 Initiative work and findings. This plan serves as a roadmap for implementing policy decisions; it is not a deployment plan with prescribed design, timeline and budget requirements, but rather is an attempt to identify and analyze 9-1-1 system migration issues and assess potential options to resolve them consistent with the requirements of the NET 911 Improvement Act. Consistent with available resources, more work is needed to complete a more detailed, comprehensive plan. The ten requirements are summarized in this Executive Summary; detailed information and references can be found in the following sections of this document.
