Technical Summary > When an emergency call is sent to a Public Safety Answering Point > (PSAP), the device that sends it, as well as any application service > provider in the path of the call, or access network provider through > which the call originated may have information about the call, the > caller or the location which the PSAP may be able to use. > > This document describes data structures and a mechanism to convey such > data to the PSAP. The mechanism uses a Uniform Resource Identifier > (URI), which may point to either an external resource or an object in > the body of the SIP message. The mechanism thus allows the data to > be passed by reference (when the URI points to an external resource) > or by value (when it points into the body of the message). This > follows the tradition of prior emergency services standardization > work where data can be conveyed by value within the call signaling > (i.e., in body of the SIP message) and also by reference. Working Group Summary > There was a good amount of work group participation in contributing, > discussing, and revising the details that make up the draft. There > were no significant controversies noted on the list, and all dialogues > were efficiently attended to with during the development stage. A > successful development progression is documented in the ECRIT working > group minutes and in email list archives. Personnel > Document shepherd is Marc Linsner. > Area Director is Alissa Cooper.
