Keeping the Signal Strong: A Practical Guide to FirstNet-Ready Connectivity for Public Safety Vehicles and Buildings
Establishing reliable, FirstNet-ready connectivity in public safety vehicles and buildings is a requirement that is critical, urgent, and challenging. For FirstNet to be successful, public safety vehicles and buildings often require significant upgrades.
This white paper helps decision makers quickly become knowledgeable about FirstNet connectivity and simplifies the complexity of LTE antenna implementations for public safety, highlighting the following:
- Public safety vehicles have connectivity today, but it tends to be low-frequency, VHF-based and UHF-based systems rather than higher-frequency LTE systems that are compatible with FirstNet
- FirstNet will require upgrades to hundreds of thousands of public safety vehicles
- Most multi-family residential buildings, as well as office and public buildings lack in-building wireless or have inadequate indoor signal boosting to provide adequate connectivity for first responders
This white paper also offers a set of best practices that will help your in-vehicle and in-building FirstNet projects be successful, while avoiding missteps.
