§ 25.284 Emergency Call Center Service.
(a) Providers of Mobile-Satellite Service to end-user customers (part
25, subparts A-D) must provide Emergency Call Center service to the
extent that they offer real-time, two way switched voice service that
is interconnected with the public switched network and utilize an
in-network switching facility which enables the provider to reuse
frequencies and/or accomplish seamless hand-offs of subscriber calls.
Emergency Call Center personnel must determine the emergency caller's
phone number and location and then transfer or otherwise redirect the
call to an appropriate public safety answering point. Providers of
Mobile-Satellite Services that utilize earth terminals that are not
capable of use while in motion are exempt from providing Emergency Call
Center service for such terminals.
(b) Beginning February 11, 2005, each Mobile-Satellite Service carrier
that is subject to the provisions of paragraph (a) of this section must
maintain records of all 911 calls received at its emergency call
center. Beginning October 15, 2005, and on each following October 15,
Mobile-Satellite Service carriers providing service in the 1.6/2.4 GHz
and 2 GHz bands must submit a report to the Commission regarding their
call center data, current as of September 30 of that year. Beginning
June 30, 2006, and on each following June 30, Mobile-Satellite Service
carriers providing service in bands other than 1.6/2.4 GHz and 2 GHz
must submit a report to the Commission regarding their call center
data, current as of May 31 of that year. These reports must include, at
a minimum, the following:
(1) The name and address of the carrier, the address of the carrier's
emergency call center, and emergency call center contact information;
(2) The aggregate number of calls received by the call center each
month during the relevant reporting period;
(3) An indication of how many calls received by the call center each
month during the relevant reporting period required forwarding to a
public safety answering point and how many did not require forwarding
to a public safety answering point.
