IWCE 2017 to Highlight First Responder Network Authority Progress in March  

When it comes to public safety, Americans expect results from first responders. The first-of-its-kind FirstNet network will carry high-speed data, location information, images, and streaming video to public-safety users, so they can have the best information to make critical decisions quickly. FirstNet will ensure interoperability among first responders and will take advantage of existing telecommunication assets, vendor competition and economies of scale to drive down costs to offer a dedicated public safety service. 

The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) will be showcased at International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE), which will take place March 27-31, 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

IWCE has been providing FirstNet with a platform for education since its inception. In fact, even before FirstNet was established Morgan O’Brien, former Nextel Communications co-founder, proposed this idea for a nationwide public safety broadband network during a keynote at IWCE in 2006. 

On Wednesday, FirstNet CEO, Michael Poth will provide a keynote address to update the IWCE audience on FirstNet’s progress with the nationwide public safety broadband network. In addition, the IWCE Conference Program will offer over a dozen educational sessions in its FirstNet track, giving attendees the opportunity to find the critical information they need on FirstNet, whether they are a public safety professional, a vendor, a government official, or even an app developer.
