Public Safety Mobile Broadband

The purpose of this survey is to gain insight into what First Responders and relevant Agencies require or expect if intra and interagency interoperability is to be delivered by a Public Safety Mobile Broadband Network (PSMBN) in the coming years.

A summary of the questions that need answering are: 

1.      The public would expect, and First Responders need a PSMB network to provide this capability.

2.      This need goes beyond just voice/LMR/MCPTT interoperability – this internal and external agency need should be present for video sharing, text messaging, location sharing, and file/data sharing.

 3.      Agencies must be able to share their existing communication and data systems without requiring the build-out of new expensive systems or being locked into a single vendor strategy.

 4.      Agencies must be able to interoperate without giving up control of their systems, i.e. maintain their sovereignty. Agencies will be less willing to participate in this PSMBN - provided capability if it requires them to cede control of their systems.

 5.      This capability must be available even in disconnected operations and during regional disasters/outages.

 6.      This capability must be able to interoperate with non-PSMB agencies as well since incidents do not respect network boundaries. This capability should seamlessly bridge communications within agencies and between agencies regardless of whether those agencies are operating on the PSMB network or any other network.
