FirstNet Outlines First 100-Days

By Amanda Murphy

This week, the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) released an outline of plans for the first 100 days of its public-private partnership. During the FirstNet Board of Directors meeting held in Sacramento, California, officials discussed key items to highlight the organization’s readiness to deploy operations. These items included:

  • A network operations team to lead coordination on network design and other components;
  • A customer service team to prepare for delivering service, driving adoption, and providing a public safety grade customer experience;
  • A forward-looking budget to ensure the most effective use of funds for the implementation of a public-private partnership and the Network;
  • A world class innovation and test lab and technical team are built to foster innovation for public safety; and
  • Independent procurement authority to enable more efficient and decisive purchasing of goods and services.

“ We now have the people, the processes, and the infrastructure in place to ensure a successful public-private partnership to deploy the Network,” said FirstNet CEO Mike Poth. “As an advocate and steward for public safety, it will be our job to ensure the Network meets their needs and objectives.  FirstNet stands ready for this awesome responsibility.”

FirstNet has not yet named the private partner selected to deploy the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network.
