National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee, Report on National Security and Emergency Preparedness Internet Protocol-Based Traffic (Nov. 6, 2008) (full-text).

Overview Edit


NSTAC examined the risk, if any, to IP-based NS/EP communications traffic, including VoIP, during times of perceived abnormal conditions or network duress. NSTAC studied if network degradation or disruption could affect the receipt or delivery of NS/EP traffic and, if so, what recommendations the NSTAC would make to the President regarding measures to ensure the delivery of IP-based NS/EP traffic during times of network duress.

To conduct its analysis, the NSTAC examined how service providers transport IP-based traffic across their networks and how they shared data regarding their ability to manage traffic end-to-end. The NSTAC also examined how carriers and service providers offer managed services to meet the requirements of their enterprise customers, including some NS/EP authorized users.

The NSTAC recommended that the President should:

  • In the long term, require that Federal departments and agencies remain actively involved in standards development of priority services on IP-based networks by supporting efforts to:
    • Provide adequate funding that will be used to develop timely solutions across all technology platforms; and
    • Commit appropriate resources to actively participate in and lead the global standards bodies' efforts to address NS/EP IP-based priority services.
