The Public Safety Broadband Technology Association (PSBTA) invites you to an insider’s look at the critical steps leading to the implementation of FirstNet, the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network, which serves the United States and its territories. Post 9/11, the lack of interoperability and reliable dedicated spectrum for public safety was recognized as a pressing deficiency in the public safety community.

Hear from the architects of FirstNet and learn firsthand what it took to successfully implement this one-of-a-kind nationwide network dedicated to public safety and the work they do every day!
