Public Safety Broadband

Optimize the Broadband Network for Your First Responders

Planning for the nationwide public safety broadband network (PSBN) is underway, and states, territories, tribes and localities need to prepare now to take full advantage of the legislation and available funding. RCC Consultants can help.

 

The Most Experienced Consultants

RCC has more broadband experience than any other public safety consulting firm. We’re currently helping the six-state Mid-Atlantic Consortium for Interoperable Nationwide Communications (MACINAC) develop broadband education and outreach and standardize data collection. We helped Delaware conduct a statewide needs assessment and inventory to maximize their network. And we’re working on several broadband projects in West Virginia, North Carolina and Ohio.

 

Leaders in Standards-Setting Organizations

Not only does RCC have vast practical broadband experience, but we can provide special insight because our staff has been in leadership positions on many of the committees that influenced the new law and future standards. These include the APCO Broadband Committee, the FCC 700 MHz National Coordination Committee and the NPSTC Broadband Working Groups.
