Deployment Process

Board Meeting 
Mar 25th May 20th
May 28th July 11th
Jul 29th Sept 12th
Sept 30th Nov 14th

This process assumes that you have decided that the AT&T contract meets your needs. A similar process will be considered with another provider.

Links to the Fairfax AT&T contract information are below in the Background Information section.

Once the migration funds are awarded, the AT&T PAL language requires that you sign the AT&T Participation Agreement (PA) with AT&T.

Please contact AT&T for the contract, your solution, and network architecture.

Background Information

The commonwealth has been discussing and planning for next generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) for nearly a decade.

With significant advances in the technology and capabilities and functionality of a NG network, now is the time to move from planning to implementation.

The question is not if the commonwealth should deploy NG9-1-1, but rather, how the commonwealth should deploy NG9-1-1. The 9-1-1 Services Board adopted a plan to guide deployment statewide, but since 9-1-1 is a local service, it is up to each locality to determine how they will move forward with NG9-1-1 deployment. 

To aid localities in their NG9-1-1 decision, the 9-1-1 Services Board is recommending localities utilize the NG9-1-1 contract issued by Fairfax County.

ISP staff recently conducted town hall meetings throughout the commonwealth to discuss the NG9-1-1 Deployment Plan, the Fairfax County contract, and AT&T's NG9-1-1 ESInet solution. Materials from these meetings, and additional materials requested by participants, are available below:
