LTE & Public Safety - A How To Guide FirstNet Edition

Date: 2012-10-26
Share |

Public safety agencies must constantly address new threats and challenges — it’s no longer enough for first responders to rely on a push-to-talk (PTT) network.  With LTE (Long Term Evolution, a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals), public safety personnel can communicate, collaborate and interoperate, regardless of location or device. These improved capabilities provide better outcomes, faster and more precise critical decision-making and improved community safety.

In support of this critical need for improved broadband capabilities, the U.S. Congress and the Obama Administration took action in early 2012 to ensure improved interoperability for future public safety communications. A new law adopted in February 2012 includes changes to public safety broadband communications policy that will drive public safety needs for the next decade and beyond.
