There’s a lot of buzz among public safety agencies about the potential for FirstNet (First Responder Network Authority) and a nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN) to ensure first responders have optimal levels of operational capabilities during natural disasters and other emergencies.

However, how it works today is a different story than what it will look like in the coming months and years. Other key factors to consider include Verizon’s announcement that it will build its own public safety network core.
