An Emergency Telecommunications Service gives authorised emergency personnel a higher probability of successful communication under high network load conditions. This document explains the different terms and acronyms used in defining and implementing this service, and is intended to be used as a common basis for negotiations when emergency service providers are contracting with telecommunications operators to provide the service. It can also be used in procurement of and tendering for ETS provision.
