From the FirstNet President

It has been a productive year for the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), the independent authority within the U.S. Department of Commerce that is ensuring the build out of a nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN).

FirstNet is focused on deploying a network that can deliver innovative technologies to first responders over a more accessible, secure, and reliable platform. Just as smartphones, tablets, and wearables like smart watches have changed the way individuals communicate in their personal lives, FirstNet believes that an NPSBN will improve the way U.S. law enforcement communicates.
