Advanced, customized apps developed for public safety’s sake

The FirstNet App Store will contain app and software solutions that will enable or enhance the public safety mission. An evolving set of software developers and suppliers will provide the apps and solutions needed by public safety. The FirstNet App Store will also serve as the home for the enterprise app portfolio, consisting of apps developed for, and in some cases by, the public safety community. All suppliers are vetted to ensure that they follow leading industry practices.

The FirstNet App Store will include mobile apps and solutions from multiple software providers in numerous categories. Mobile apps are typically used by end users on their mobile devices (handsets and tablets), while administrators log onto a console to manage features and configure subscribed services. Together these components form a solution. For example, Push-to-Talk on LTE devices will have a mobile app used by first responders on their LTE handsets, but the account management software portion of the solution will be used primarily by an administrator.

The FirstNet App Store will provide the convenience of a public app store with the added security features of a private app store. Subscription-based mobile apps, stand-alone mobile apps, and public safety administrative solutions can be reviewed from the store and easily downloaded by FirstNet users.

The FirstNet App Store will include:

  • Communication Tools - Fleet Management, Push-to-Talk Communications, and Work Force Management Solutions
  • Device Security Solutions - MDM and EMM
  • Private Connection Solutions - Private Connection and VPN solutions
  • Cloud Solutions - Cloud Storage options, Content Delivery Network, and Virtual Data Center Services
