The article reports that the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials and the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) are calling for voice-over-IP Enhanced 911 (VoIP E911) improvements due to the difficulties in the U.S. 911 emergency call system. The Senate bill, SB 1063, supported by NENA would give voice-over-IP providers the same access to 911 facilities as wireless and telephone companies provide. Internet Protocol-based protocols such as Session Initiation Protocol are used to improve the transmission of location information via VoIP E911.
