FirstNet, Built with AT&T Launches App Webinar Series with RadioResource Media Group
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 | Comments

FirstNet, built with AT&T partnered with RadioResource Media Group to launch a six-webinar series called “Apps for First Responders.” Each webinar will include demonstrations of applications available in the FirstNet App Catalog, along with other information.

The webinars will provide information on mobile apps for public safety’s FirstNet platform. Every app available in the FirstNet App Catalog will be demonstrated in one of the six 90-minute sessions. MissionCritical Communications Editor Sandra Wendelken will moderate the webinars.

Attendees will learn about the newest FirstNet features and capabilities, hear from mobility experts about ways to improve data privacy and security, and see public-safety apps that provide:
• A common operating picture across data sources, devices, people and locations
• Critical workflow management that collects, analyzes, shares, manages and retains incident information or patient data across time, space and people
• Field collaboration for easy and highly secure information and file sharing across mobile users
• Live streaming video and body-worn camera capabilities using smartphones
• Essential responder communications that include push-to-talk (PTT) with LMR-to-Long Term Evolution (LTE) interoperability
• Remotely controlled messaging and alert sharing, broadcasting and archiving
• Sensor and other internet of things (IoT) interface data sharing and analysis for fleet management or responder health and wellness
• Enterprise connectivity to expand office and desktop capabilities into the field
• Device and app management tools that provide for highly secure or persistent system connections, the distribution of apps and enforcement of mobility policies

The webinar series kicks off March 21, with another webinar every mid-month thereafter through August. The software firms with apps in the FirstNet App Catalog are finalizing their schedules for announcement.

The first webinar will feature six different apps that enable teamwork and provide information about social media and understanding the FirstNet app designations. Register for the March 21 webinar here.

With reliable access to voice, data and video in the field from FirstNet, public-safety agencies can now depend on mobile apps as operational tools. This is a game changer. Apps on FirstNet can immediately address the needs of first responders who have yet to benefit from smart devices and custom apps, something less critical workers find commonplace. Moreover, apps on FirstNet can be digital tools that further advance the capabilities for our nation’s first responders by automating administrative tasks, simplifying the complex and enabling new possibilities.

While FirstNet devices work with any commercial app, public-safety professionals need more than typical commercial app store customers. So FirstNet manages an app store built just for FirstNet subscribers.

Every app in the FirstNet App Catalog is inspected, and only those deemed directly relevant, highly secure and available at least 99.9 percent of the time are included. Agencies that want greater confidence in an app’s security, availability, scalability and resiliency can select apps granted with the FirstNet Certified status. FirstNet customers can feel confident that apps included the FirstNet App Catalog are optimized for mobility so device resources, such as batteries, will not be unnecessarily drained.
