ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the IP-Enabled Voice Communications and Public Safety Act, a bill passed by the U.S. Senate, requiring all current and future Internet Protocol (IP)-enabled telephony services to offer 911 and E911 calling. The proposed law will vest the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with the authority to mandate that all Voice over IP (VoIP) providers offer 911/E911 services to their subscribers, including new communication services as they become available. E911 is the ability of a communication service to automatically send location information to emergency call centers during a 911 call.
