The FCC is seeking comment on a petition from Cordova Wireless Communications for temporary waiver of Section 20.18(i) of the commission’s rules. In its petition, Cordova Wireless said that the public-safety answering point (PSAP) operated by the city of Cordova, Alaska, is incapable of receiving and using indoor location data and Phase II enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) location data.Verizon Acquires Drone Software Company

Cordova Wireless said that in light of this circumstance, requiring it to comply with the rules would lead to specific technical and financial hardships. Cordova Wireless therefore requests that the FCC waive the location accuracy requirements, including reporting requirements, until the Cordova PSAP is capable of receiving and using Phase II E9-1-1 and indoor location data.
