APCO 2019, APCO International’s Annual Conference and Expo, is the premier event for public safety communications officials, from frontline telecommunicators to communications center managers to public safety communications equipment and services vendors.
P25 CAP provides the public with an opportunity to review and comment on Compliance Assessment Bulletins and reporting templates before they are finalized and published. These tables outline comments that were submitted to DHS S&T, along with a response to each comment.
DHS S&T announced the release of two Project 25 (P25) Compliance Assessment Program (CAP) draft Compliance Assessment Bulletins (CAB) for review and comment. The draft CABs are available for public comment through July 19, 2019, and they address P25 CAP compliance testing.
DHS is opening a public comment period to review the P25 Compliance Assessment Bulletin (CAB) addressing Testing Rules. DHS S&T has issued multiple P25 CAP Common Air Interface (CAI) Testing Requirements CABs that address communication equipment’s performance, conformance and interoperability.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) continues its efforts to streamline the Supplier’s Declaration of Compliance (SDOC) and Summary Test Report (STR) templates in an effort to make P25 CAP documentation more useful to end users, as well as reduce the burden on manufacturers and P25 CAP recognized laboratories. DHS will now open a public comment period to review the P25 Compliance Assessment Bulletin (CAB) addressing Baseline Inter-RF Sub-System Interface and Console Sub-System Interface Interoperability Testing Requirements, as well as the latest version of the SDOC template.
The Federal Partnership for Interoperable Communications (FPIC), in conjunction with SAFECOM and the National Council of Statewide Coordinators (NCSWIC), has published a guidance document for the emergency communications user community concerning implementation of Project25 (P25) Inter-RF Subsystem Interface (ISSI) and Console Subsystem Interface (CSSI) technologies.
