The future of public safety networks in the U.S.
In 2017, AT&T won the contract to build, operate, and maintain a nationwide network platform, FirstNet, which is dedicated to the public safety community.
The FirstNet core is highly secure, reducing the risk of complications that come with a multicore architecture, for example, operational complexity, security complexity, and increased latency. In addition, FirstNet has spectrum licensed specifically for use on its core network, giving first responders their own communication frequencies when needed. What’s more, FirstNet provides priority on the network and enables interoperability between agencies.
Learn what FirstNet is doing to allows first responders to respond faster, whether on a Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system or laptop receiving immediate details about the situation they are about to confront.
