FCC OKs FirstNet Public Safety Network Spectrum Rules

November 1, 2013

The Federal Communications Commission has approved new technical regulations on the use of public-safety broadband spectrum licensed to a future nationwide broadband public safety network, GCN reported Thursday.

William Jackson writes the rules take effect immediately and could clear the way for FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology to start certifying devices that could operate in the 700 megahertz band for FirstNet.

GCN reports the commission expedited the rules because some jurisdictions have already received federal grants to develop a public safety LTE network on FirstNet’s airwaves.
