NPSTC's Broadband Working Group Publishes Local Control in the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network

As the long-awaited public safety broadband network moves closer to reality with the passage of legislation last month, NPSTC's Broadband Working Group (BBWG) has been working to identify public safety requirements for the nationwide public safety 700 MHz broadband network.  Through the work of task groups, the BBWG is researching specific areas including voice, security, priority and quality of service, multimedia emergency services, and local control.

The Local Control Task Group focused on the amount of control local agencies should have in a national public safety broadband network. Because the actual definition of local control varies widely, the Task Group developed standard definitions.  On February 27, 2012, the BBWG released, Local Control in the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network, for peer review, which has since been approved and published.

The document outlines a User Entity's needs and expectations for its control of a nationwide public safety broadband network. For the purposes of this document, a "User Entity" is defined to be a public safety organization, federal, state, or local, that makes use of communications services from a "Broadband Network Operator."
