When bad things happen, we want good people on the scene as quickly as possible and for those people to have the right tools for the job. First responders have communications needs that include being able to receive calls, check maps and routes, download and upload various information, run several specific applications, and of course, communicate with their colleagues. This often has to take place while on the move and in less-than-ideal circumstances. Public-safety users cannot tolerate dropped calls or slow applications because of congested networks. The dedicated First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) exists to ensure that first responders can make calls and access the data they need, with the best cellular connectivity available.

Multiple systems will work together to provide seamless communications from the professionals reporting incidents to those dispatched to respond to the incidents. This network of integrated networks is all IP based, so voice, data and video flows freely from one pipe to another, and capacity and voice follow the optimal path to reach first responders.

The relentless drive for more Wi-Fi and cellphone spectrum is on a collision course with established public-safety communications networks. Technology consumers expect more wireless services that are faster, ubiquitously available and uncongested. The demand is so high that the FCC opened a proceeding to adopt rules for unlicensed use in the 6 GHz spectrum, which is currently licensed to many public-safety entities and businesses that rely on the spectrum for safety and critical communications for fixed point-to-point microwave communications.

The mission-critical communications industry is changing. New technology is emerging, and with new technology comes new suppliers, sales strategies and business plans. Shareholders reward companies with monthly subscription fees — often called “software as a service” — because of the stable recurring revenue. The goals of suppliers don’t always align with what’s in the best interest of your communications network.
