If you're entrenched in the world of Public Safety communications, the words FirstNet and LTE are commonplace in your vocabulary. In fact, you have probably been following the FirstNet saga and keeping up with the many new devices coming into the market this year. So it may be a bit of a surprise when speaking to Public Safety professionals who are not in communications, and who serve in the field or in supporting roles, to find that these concepts are brand new.
EMR is proud to supply a very brief and informative summary of FirstNet and the Public Safety Broadband revolution, intended as a beginner's guide, posted in our company website.
This page includes a summary of FirstNet, the law that created it, and the spectrum and funding which will allow the organization to design and implement the nation's first NPSBN.
Keep an eye out for more detailed and informative content on FirstNet and the NPSBN as the project develops, but in the meantime direct new hires and communications novices to the EMR Public Safety Broadband summary page, and watch the NTIA's FirstNet section for the most up to date and accurate information on what FirstNet is doing.
