FirstNet is the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network created by the U.S. Congress for America's public safety agencies. This presentation/panel session will address topics ranging from the origins of the network to how ECCs are currently using the service to improve situational awareness and communication efficiencies.
Participants will learn FirstNet history and fundamentals.
Participants will learn how FirstNet can be used in the ECC, not just for phones for personnel, but in other ways (e.g., as transport backup and remote call processing/dispatching/supervision).
Participants will learn how ECCs are using FN to integrate LMR-to-LTE communications.
