7.) Updates:

NENA - Rick Jones has some language changes for the Testing Document that he will send to Paul Gerth. Three test for 911 in the test plan. The wording on the first test was for owner network or roaming. Rick wanted language that included both, wireline to wireless and wireless to wireless.

Wireless LNP study group working on what the wireless PSAP display should be to accommodate mixed service.

Rick asked if there was a way for the wireline carrier to tell the difference between a port request from the fixed wireless provider vs a mobility wireless provider. The LSR will carry the OCN which carriers with it the intelligence.

OBF - no update next meeting is the end of January.

NNPO - Paul Gerth presented the Test Plan last month. A lot a discussion at that presentation the NNPO requested that wireless finish its testing before approaching a wireline carrier to begin testing. The Testing Subcommittee did not agree to include such language in the test plan but felt that this would be taken care of in our by-lateral agreements.

In addition, the NNPO requested that the wireless ops team take the lead for inter species porting. They would participate but they wanted wireless to take the lead.
