AT&T added the LG V35 ThinQ smartphone to First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) device ecosystem. The phone will be available online at the end of this week and will be available at AT&T stores in early June.

“As the builder of FirstNet, we committed to bringing first responders innovative, relevant and robust device options to tap into the power of their network,” said Chris Sambar, senior vice president, AT&T – FirstNet. “We’re continuing to deliver on that commitment with the LG V35 ThinQ. It’s a great example of how FirstNet works for public safety, giving them access to the latest tools to enhance their emergency response.”

The FirstNet-Ready smartphone comes with built-in band 14 access and will immediately accept a FirstNet subscriber identity module (SIM).

Before being certified and approved for use on FirstNet, the device completed more than 3,500 tests that assessed everything from security, durability and voice quality to network impacts, battery life, screen size and resolution, ensuring it would stand up to the demands of first responders.

Features of the phone include LG GATE, which has government-grade Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)-140-2 certification and 256-bit advanced encryption standard (AES) encryption; far field voice communications; and Mil-Std-810 and IP68 compliance.
