Empower your mission-critical apps to truly deliver when they need to.
Public safety apps get prioritized quality of service on FirstNet. Even within that set of apps, there are critical apps which during incidents and under certain trigger conditions have to be elevated to receive a higher quality of service** .
Ensure seamless and on-demand priority when first responders need it.
The elevated priority is triggered by the app based on predefined trigger conditions; it does not need human intervention. Apps that need higher quality of service (QoS) get exactly that, right when they need it.
FirstNet – Built with AT&T
For public safety, by public safety
Due to communications challenges during the response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the 9/11 Commission recommended the establishment of a single, interoperable network for public safety. For years, public safety organizations lobbied Congress to make this recommendation a reality. Therefore, when Congress established the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) in 2012, it based its mission on public safety’s express concerns and desires.
To truly design the FirstNet network for public safety by public safety – a distinction that makes it unique in American telecommunications history – FirstNet continuously consults with local, state/territory, tribal and federal public safety agencies across the country.
Over the past several years, FirstNet has collaborated with public safety stakeholders and leadership from each state and territory. Never before has the public safety community had the opportunity to provide input towards the creation of a nationwide broadband network tailored specifically to meet their needs as they save lives and protect communities across the nation.
