Increase Capacity with Extended Broadband Priority Service for Utilities

The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) was established in the U.S. to operate and maintain the first nationwide high-speed broadband wireless network dedicated to help first responders save lives and keep communities safe.

Electric, Gas and Water utilities also qualify for FirstNet usage as restoration of their services are critical in saving lives and keeping communities safe. FirstNet provides utilities increased access to extended primary service during natural disasters when communications are critical and public cellular networks may be overwhelmed.

Watch this webinar and discover why utilities need to advance their communication technologies. Learn how FirstNet can help utilities gain reliable, secure and resilient communications that complements and connects to their primary networks, including:

  • Critical networking strategies for field workers and grid equipment during disasters 
  • The importance of FirstNet (priority service) to utilities and manufacturers
  • Future predictions for FirstNet and utilities
