FCC Approves Interoperability Technical Requirements for FirstNet (6/22/12)
The FCC approved for transmittal to the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) the minimum technical requirements submitted by the Technical Advisory Board for First Responder Interoperability. The report, titled “Recommended Minimum Technical Requirements to Ensure Nationwide Interoperability for the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network,” sets forth the recommended minimum technical requirements for interoperability.
The Spectrum Act, passed in February, established FirstNet to oversee all actions necessary to ensure the building, deployment and operation of the nationwide public-safety broadband network. The act also established the interoperability board to develop recommended minimum technical requirements to ensure a nationwide level of interoperability for the network.
“The commission approves for transmittal to FirstNet the interoperability board’s final report and delegates authority to the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) to transmit the report to FirstNet,” an FCC statement said.
The interoperability board released the recommendations in May.
