Thursday, May 23, 2019 | Comments

The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) released its annual report to Congress for fiscal year 2018. The year saw the beginning of the deployment of the nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN).

Right now, more than 7,250 agencies using more than 600,000 connections are on the FirstNet network, and more than 100 devices have been approved or certified for use on the FirstNet network.

During fiscal year 2018, FirstNet also continued to engage and collaborate with federal agencies, states, territories, tribes, local agencies and industry. The FirstNet Authority worked with jurisdictions across the country to educate first responders about the benefits of broadband for public safety and the ways it is changing vital public-safety communications.

During the next year, FirstNet plans to continue to directly interact with and obtain input from stakeholders, including developing a road map to advance FirstNet, in coordination with the public-safety community and based on industry needs.
