In 2012, the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) was created to build, operate and maintain the first high-speed, nationwide broadband network dedicated to public safety. Now in 2015, FirstNet is preparing to issue its first RFP in the build out of the LTE network. The panelists will discuss the anticipated procurement process, share early success stories, discuss input from states and other agencies regarding network requirements and capabilities and discuss initial obstacles for acquisition and implementation.
