In response to “House to Hold FirstNet Hearing March 14” from March 5


Does the House know that the IWCE show is taking place in Las Vegas next week on that day? All potential small, medium and large communications vendors, OEMs and integrators, as well as just about anyone in public-safety communications will probably be in Las Vegas for this event. It really puts a difficulty on trying to be in two places at once.

Our company has what we believe is a very compelling proposal for the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) in terms of rapidly deployable, cost-effective and infrastructure-independent communications for voice, data and interconnect. We have spent the last five years between research and development (R&D) and field trials, as well as actual customer implementations around the United  States. We are giving an IWCE conference presentation about this, and we would have loved to seek audience with the House on this too. Is there any way that they can allow us to present at another date?

In response to “FCC Provides NG 9-1-1 Recommendations to Congress in New Report” from Feb. 28


Why not add next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) to the network that the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) is building? Eventually they will be part of the same public-safety network?
