FirstNet Unveils Five-Year Public Safety Roadmap

Jeff Brody

The First Responder Network Authority has published a roadmap that details public safety technology trends and operational needs for mobile broadband communications in the next five years. Built from industry and government feedback, the FirstNet Authority Roadmap contains six domains that represent key public safety operational functions, FirstNet said Monday.

The domains include voice communications, user experience, secure information exchange, situational awareness, network core, coverage and capacity. Additionally, FirstNet intends to facilitate potential network investments and prioritize activities and initiatives to equip first responders with communication capabilities in line with the roadmap.

“As we look to the future of FirstNet, it is critical that we deliver network enhancements and innovations based on the needs of public safety and in lock step with trends in technology,” said Edward Horowitz, chairman of the board at FirstNet.
