  § 9.3   Definitions.

   ANI. Automatic Number Identification, as such term is defined in § 20.3 of
   this chapter.

   Appropriate local emergency authority. An emergency answering point that has
   not been officially designated as a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP),
   but  has  the capability of receiving 911 calls and either dispatching
   emergency services personnel or, if necessary, relaying the call to another
   emergency service provider. An appropriate local emergency authority may
   include, but is not limited to, an existing local law enforcement authority,
   such  as  the police, county sheriff, local emergency medical services
   provider, or fire department.

   Automatic  Location  Information  (ALI). Information transmitted while
   providing E911 service that permits emergency service providers to identify
   the geographic location of the calling party.

   CMRS. Commercial Mobile Radio Service, as defined in § 20.9 of this chapter.

   Interconnected VoIP service. An interconnected Voice over Internet protocol
   (VoIP) service is a service that:

   (1) Enables real-time, two-way voice communications;

   (2) Requires a broadband connection from the user's location;

   (3) Requires Internet protocol-compatible customer premises equipment (CPE);

   (4) Permits users generally to receive calls that originate on the public
   switched telephone network and to terminate calls to the public switched
   telephone network.

   PSAP. Public Safety Answering Point, as such term is defined in § 20.3 of
   this chapter.

   Pseudo Automatic Number Identification (Pseudo-ANI). A number, consisting of
   the same number of digits as ANI, that is not a North American Numbering
   Plan telephone directory number and may be used in place of an ANI to convey
   special  meaning.  The  special  meaning assigned to the pseudo-ANI is
   determined by agreements, as necessary, between the system originating the
   call,  intermediate  systems  handling  and  routing the call, and the
   destination system.

   Registered  Location.  The  most  recent  information  obtained  by an
   interconnected VoIP service provider that identifies the physical location
   of an end user.

   Statewide default answering point. An emergency answering point designated
   by the State to receive 911 calls for either the entire State or those
   portions of the State not otherwise served by a local PSAP.

   Wireline E911 Network. A dedicated wireline network that:

   (1) Is interconnected with but largely separate from the public switched
   telephone network;

   (2) Includes a selective router; and

   (3) Is utilized to route emergency calls and related information to PSAPs,
   designated statewide default answering points, appropriate local emergency
   authorities or other emergency answering points.
