STA (NENA Standards Document)

From NENA Knowledge Base

STA (NENA Standards Document) is a document published for the use of the public safety community. The naming convention for a NENA Standard includes the initials NENA-STA and the document number and name. It is intended to describe methods, processes, and specifications that, if implemented as specified, should result in successful operation of the 9-1-1 emergency call and incident processing system. Most importantly, independent implementations that conform to NENA STA documents should interoperate with each other, providing seamless 9‑1‑1 emergency call and incident processing within a jurisdiction using multiple vendors and between jurisdictions that use different vendors. NENA STA documents may be used by system developers, service providers, public safety agencies, regulatory authorities and others for the purposes of development, procurement, and management of 9-1-1 emergency call and incident processing products and services. Some NENA Standard (STA) documents may be published as American National Standards (ANS). The STA document may include sections on the NENA Registry System and XML Schemas Considerations, if applicable.
