  serve for information
• Share the impact on your system with us for
  publication like Pinellas and Houston has done
• Be prepared to answer hard questions at home like
   – Why did we spend so much money on equipment during
     rebanding when it is no good after 2012?
   – Is our radio equipment no longer safe?
   – Why didn’t we know about this 2 years ago?

Nationwide Public Safety
Interoperable Wireless Broadband Network

June 6, 2007 - The Public Safety Spectrum Trust (PSST) was created as a
not-for-profit Corporation. It was formed by the Association of Public-
Safety Officials-International (APCO), the International Association of
Chiefs of Police (IACP), the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC),
and the International Municipal Signal Association (IMSA). The intent was
to apply for the proposed single nationwide Public Safety Broadband
License
August 10, 2007 – FCC issued the Second Report & Order that set forth a
     PSBT
process for selection of a nationwide public safety broadband license
   Proposal
including rigorous requirements for eligibility for the nationwide license.
    30 MHz
The R&O included unprecedented requirements for a license holder
including specific language to be included in the By-Laws of the
organization holding the public safety license.
November 19, 2007 - FCC named the PSST as the nationwide Public Safety
Broadband Licensee (PSBL) and issued a 10 year license.

   Network-of-Networks Concept

•Multiple IDs (PLMNs), one for each Public Safety Network
    – Forces roaming between public safety networks, and all associated
       engineering and business expenses for roaming replicated between
       each network
    – May not be possible to get many IDs from ATIS IOC
•Inconsistent user subscription fees for each network and roaming fees
between PS networks (TBD)
•Duplication & Overbuild = unnecessary expenses
•Upgrades inconsistent across Public Safety networks
•Public safety roaming also required onto commercial networks
    – One agreement between each Public Safety Network, and each
       supported commercial network, or
    – An agreement between each Public Safety Network and a Clearing
       House & Roaming Hub.

One Nationwide Network Concept


  •No public safety roaming on a nationwide network that
  deploys a single Network ID (PLMN)
      – Consistent user subscription fee regardless of user
         location based on nationwide agreement (TBD)
  •Upgrades nationally consistent
  •Public safety roaming only required onto commercial
  network(s)
      – A single agreement with a clearing house can be used
         versus multiple agreements in a network-of- networks
         approach

Network Management
The recurring costs to manage and refresh a network, over the long term,
will be the largest cost component regardless of configuration. One
Nationwide Network would be a much simpler configuration and will cost
the least amount to manage, maintain, upgrade, etc.
In a network of networks approach, release upgrades would need to be
coordinated and consistent funding among all the network operators to
keep every LTE component at the same release level. This would slow
the overall evolution of the nationwide network to match the slowest of
the multiple network operators or if uncoordinated upgrades are made the
features available will not be uniform across the nation and could cause
operability and interoperability problems.

  Priority on the network

•Must not forget that local officials are primarily concerned about priority
access and Quality of Service (QOS) so they can manage local incidents
•A process to manage priority levels for local incident management will
need to be developed
•This process does not depend on the number of operators to meet local
needs
•The greater the number of system operators the more this will look like
the current Land Mobile Radio (LMR) voice systems with the obstacles
to interoperability that we have in the LMR environment today

 Nationwide Public Safety
 Interoperable Wireless Broadband Network

A DIFFERENT FUNDING MODEL IS ESSENTIAL
   A nationwide funding model will be essential to gain a nationwide public safety
interoperable network. Federal funds to build, manage and refresh a nationwide network
must be based on a new and unified funding approach that funds local, state, and
national elements of a nationwide network as opposed to a grant program that
disparately funds only selected localities such as the BTOP Program.

NPSTC Broadband Working Group Recap

The NPSTC Broadband Working Group has been active in
development user requirements from the beginning of the 700MHz
broadband process for public safety:
• In November 2007, NPSTC published the first version (0.6) of the
700MHz Broadband Public Safety Statement of Requirements
    – At the time, the D block auction had not occurred
    – Public safety had not selected a technology
• In August of 2009. NPSTC published the Broadband Task Force
Report detailing a first cut at interoperability requirements given LTE
as the technology of choice
    – Waivers had not yet been granted to PS organizations
    – Roaming amongst potentially separate PS LTE networks was
       not heavily considered

                   communications and interoperability through collaborative leadership.           41
NPSTC Broadband Working Group Current Efforts

Given the tremendous amount of activity in the last year or so in 700MHz
broadband, NPSTC felt it was time to reconstitute the Broadband Working
Group to begin to address current issues:
• Public safety has often referred to mission critical voice requirements but
no documentation existed on what this specifically was
    –   NPSTC has a document out for comment that is the first high level definition for what
        mission critical voice means
    –   This information will be used in the development of a voice capability for public safety
        over 700MHz LTE and other technologies and spectrum as needed
• Given that the Public Safety community has elected to leverage a
commercial technology for its broadband needs, a careful gap analysis
needs to be performed to determine what changes, if any, need to be made
to the technology to meet PS needs
    –   The first step in a gap analysis if knowing what the requirements are, thus an update to
        the 700MHz Broadband SoR is underway
    –   Currently need volunteers from all stakeholders

PSCR’s 700MHz Public Safety
Broadband Demonstration Network
The only government or independent lab facility located in the United States
to test and demonstrate public safety 700 MHz broadband networks and
applications, the Demonstration Network provides:

A place for manufacturers and carriers to deploy their systems to test them
in a multi‐vendor environment. This provides integration opportunities.

A place for public safety to see how these systems will function, specific to
their unique needs. Interested agencies can visit the network and get
hands‐on experience with these systems, as well as run public safety
specific test cases that relate directly to their operational environments.

A place where early builders can ensure that the systems they might procure
will in fact work in the eventual nationwide network, assisting agencies in
their procurement process.
