Considered the new de-facto standard for public safety broadband communications, LTE is rapidly gaining momentum within the public safety industry as a viable alternative to the decades-long use of non-cellular technologies such as Land Mobile Radio (LMR). While leading public safety communications vendors such as Motorola Solutions, Inc. continue to support LMR, the public safety LTE market is increasingly gaining momentum through the efforts of leading technology suppliers and communications service providers.
Enabled by the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, along with the allotment of $7 billion and 20 MHz of the 700 MHz D-Block spectrum, the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), implementation began in May of 2013. In March 2017, FirstNet formed a public-private partnership with AT&T, awarding AT&T a 25-year contract to build out the network.
In addition to all 50 states, 5 territories and the District of Columbia opted in to use FirstNet network within the United States, the solution is gaining momentum at the US federal level. For example, AT&T recently announced that the Navy and the Marine Corps had signed up to the FirstNet public safety broadband network. AT&T also recently announced that the U.S. Department of Justice selected it to modernize communications across the 40-plus federal agencies in the department in a deal worth $984 million over 15 years. Overall, they claim 7,000 agencies are participating in FirstNet, subscribing to more than 600,000 connections.
It is important to note that FirstNet is not the only public safety network. For example, the Verizon Responder Private Core for public safety LTE, which uses utilizes spectrum in various bands including the 700 MHz, 800 MHz Cellular, 1.9 GHz PCS, and 1.7/2.1 GHz AWS bands. The Verizon solution separates public safety data communications from commercial and consumer traffic, and is available at no additional cost to first responders and all qualified public safety personnel. Interoperability between AT&T and Verizon public safety networks remains an issue of discussion within the ecosystem.
