  §  12.3   911 and E911 analyses and reports.

   The following entities must analyze their 911 and E911 networks and/or
   systems and provide a detailed report to the Commission on the
   redundancy, resiliency, and reliability of those networks and/or
   systems: Local exchange carriers (LECs), including incumbent LECs
   (ILECS) and competitive LECs (CLECs); commercial mobile radio service
   providers required to comply with the wireless 911 rules set forth in
   § 20.18 of this chapter; and interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol
   (VoIP) service providers. LECs that meet the definition of a Class B
   company set forth in § 32.11(b)(2) of this chapter, non-nationwide
   commercial mobile radio service providers with no more than 500,000
   subscribers at the end of 2001, and interconnected VoIP service
   providers with annual revenues below the revenue threshold established
   pursuant to § 32.11 of this chapter are exempt from this rule.

   (a) The Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) has the
   delegated authority to implement and activate a process through which
   these reports will be submitted, including the authority to establish
   the specific data that will be required. Where relevant, these reports
   should include descriptions of the steps the service providers intend
   to take to ensure diversity and dependability in their 911 and E911
   networks and/or systems, including any plans they have to migrate those
   networks and/or systems to a next generation Internet Protocol-based
   E911 platform.

   (b) These reports are due 120 days from the date that the Commission or
   its staff announces activation of the 911 network and system reporting

   (c) Reports filed under this Part will be presumed to be confidential.
   These reports will be shared with The National Emergency Number
   Association, The Association of Public Safety Communications Officials,
   and The National Association of State 9–1–1 Administrators only
   pursuant to a protective order. PSHSB has the delegated authority to
   issue such protective orders. All other access to these reports must be
   sought pursuant to procedures set forth in 47 CFR 0.461. Notice of any
   requests for inspection of these reports will be provided to the filers
   of the reports pursuant to 47 CFR 0.461(d)(3).
