Reliable communication is critical for first responders and those who support them. You need to collaborate with your team and other agencies for an effective response. In a fast-changing situation, you need quick access to information, so you can make informed decisions. FirstNet® Push-to-Talk (PTT) is the communications tool you need to help you meet these critical needs.
Mission critical standards
FirstNet PTT was built based on the public safety standards set by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). This is the body responsible for LTE and 5G global standards. In addition to voice and data services, which deliver timely and relevant information, future capabilities of FirstNet PTT will help enhance your team’s situational awareness, allowing more informed decision-making.
“Reliable communication is critical. It has to work. It has to be there when we need it. And it has to be crystal clear because we don’t have time to repeat ourselves or introduce room for errors in fast-changing situations. Our experience with FirstNet Push-to-Talk has been excellent.”
