Executive Committee met yesterday for a “Broadband Coverage Workshop”

  • The US Office of Emergency Communications (OEC) led the workshop. Presented data collected from a variety of nationwide sources to establish a baseline/starting point when establishing coverage objectives for FirstNet
    • We can use this data and refine it to meet our unique public safety operational needs

Focus on coverage….not infrastructure

  • The goal is to define and prioritize operational coverage needs
  • RAN site selection, backhaul, hardening requirements, etc. are for a later discussion
  • These site selection factors will be addressed through SLIGP funding

This is a starting point…..nothing is final

  • The maps provided by OEC are to help States identify its own coverage objectives
  • Many coverage factors/approaches that the State develops can/will adjust throughout the consultation process

LTE is a mobile data solution first…..mission critical voice is yet to come

  • NPSBN will initially support mission critical data and (potentially) supplementary voice
  • System will not replace need for land mobile radio (LMR) systems (based on current technology)
focus on coverage
Focus on Coverage
  • Capacity
  • How many total users?
  • What is their operational area?
  • What type of applications do they use?
  • Coverage
  • Where is reliable coverage needed?
  • For what level/ device types?
  • Using what potential methods?
  • RAN Design
  • Estimated number of sites
  • Initial cost estimate
  • Parameters for asset data collection
how will we collect this information
How will we collect this information?
  • Prior to consultation with FirstNet, IPSC will
    • Validate agency information
    • Gauge interest and needs
    • Disseminate information as it becomes available
  • Expect to be contacted by one of our new Field/Outreach Coordinators

phase 2 sligp
Phase 2 SLIGP
  • We don’t expect locals to do all this on their own
  • Bulk of SLIGP $$ is for contacted data collection services
  • State should develop an understanding of their operational user requirements to be communicated to FirstNet
    • Coverage
    • Users (Capacity)
  • FirstNetwill develop a system design based on these needs which will be refined through consultation
  • Focus outreach on the near-term needs of consultation
  • OEC and tools available to public safety agencies
    • Coverage and User Information
    • Mobile Data Survey Tool
    • Broadband Resources
