In 2012, Congress created the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) and authorized it to build, operate, and maintain FirstNet, a single, nationwide broadband network in response to the communication failures that occurred during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Today, the FirstNet network is working as Congress intended and public safety needs.
Public safety agencies on FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform – now have access to an end-to-end fleet management solution. Fleet Complete for FirstNet now offers a fully-integrated solution that gives agencies comprehensive, near real-time insights into critical fleet and in-field first responder activities.
AT&T has entered into an agreement to resell Mutualink to enhance interoperable communications for public safety. This new relationship will allow AT&T to bring Mutualink’s Interoperable Response and Preparedness Platform (IRAPP) to first responders and supporting agencies using services provided over FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform.
The FirstNet communications platform – built with AT&T and the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) – has well-surpassed the half-a-million mark, with over 600,000 device connections being used by more than 7,250 public safety agencies.
FirstNet is making first responder communications simpler, safer, faster, and more effective.
