With the potential for millions of users on a single LTE network, FirstNet hopes to foster creation of a new ecosystem in which entities compete to deliver applications and other services through the FirstNet network. The nationwide scale brought by FirstNet will maximize the value of every public safety dollar spent by allowing public safety end-users to take advantage of an increasingly competitive marketplace.
First responders in every state face the challenge of preparing for and responding to natural disasters. Having reliable communications is an integral component of any plan or response effort. FirstNet can help public safety save lives and secure communities by ensuring a reliable communication system is in place to assist public safety and rescue crews before, during, and after a natural disaster.
Emergencies don’t happen only in highly populated areas — which is why reaching rural America is one of FirstNet’s top priorities. FirstNet is addressing rural coverage needs in multiple ways to deploy the network in places where coverage may be difficult. High-power towers can cover more rural space with less total infrastructure, as dan deployable and satellite solutions.
FirstNet will carry high-speed data, location information, images, and video that can mean all the difference when seconds count. Just as smartphones have created a new era of real-time information and connectedness for individuals, the FirstNet network, devices and applications will enable the collaboration the public safety community needs to save lives.
