1 This presentation was prepared by the Missouri SLIGP using funds under an award from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC). The statements, findings, conclusions, and recommendations are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NTIA, DOC, or FirstNet.

2  Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN)  Single nationwide public safety network  Based on LTE technology  Located in public safety spectrum 700mhz band  First responders to send / receive data and video

3  Introduce you to :  NPSBN  SLIGP  FirstNet and what their roles are in delivering a broadband network to public safety in Missouri

4  The cost of the system for users  By device  By data consumption  How coverage is going to be accomplished  Terrestrial  Satellite  Other  When is it going to be done

5 DateMilestone February 2012Federal legislation authorizing NPSBN February 2013State and Local Implementation Grant Program (SLIGP) Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) April 2014Education & Outreach with stakeholders on a dedicated PSBN for Missouri May 2015Report on proposed needs & design recommendations for the network

6  State and  Local  Implementation  Grant  Program

7  A sub unit in the Department of Public Safety’s Interoperability Office  Mr. Bryan Courtney – Single Point of Contact for SLIGP  Assisted by a staff responsible for carrying out the SLIGP mission

8  Provide education and outreach to the public safety community about FirstNet  Collaborate with the public safety community to identify your needs, requirements, and desires for broadband use through :  surveys,  focus groups, and  direct conversations

9  Share that information with FirstNet to be used to create the plan for the Missouri Radio Access Network (RAN)  Provide timely communication to FirstNet regarding Missouri’s progress

10  Use the information to aid in understanding the needs and requirements of Missouri public safety agencies and first responders.

11  Task 1 – Project Plan  Task 2 – Governance Recommendation  Task 3 – Education and Outreach  Task 4 – Stakeholder Entity List  Task 5 – MOU and MOA  Task 6 – State and Stakeholder Volunteers  Task 7 – Requirements Collection  Task 8 – SCIP Recommendation  Task 9 – Data Discovery and Collection  Task 10 – Financial Sustainability Plan


13 The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) shall hold the single public safety wireless license and take all actions necessary to ensure the building, deployment, and operation of the nationwide public safety broadband network

14  9/11 Commission  Federal law

15  High speed  Wireless  Broadband data network  Dedicated to public safety  Nationwide

16  Long Term Evolution  First commercial standard released 2008 (Release 8)  First commercial launch in 2009 (Sweden)  Release 10 in Q3 - 2012

17 Rapid Technology Development Increased Device Capabilities Improved Infrastructure Deployment Capabilities Affordable Device Costs Open, commercial standards - economies of scale - time to market

18 12.5 KHz P25 pipe 10 MHz broadband pipe Video Internet Database downloads Multiple mission critical voice streams Push to Talk (non mission critical voice) RoIP Messaging / Text Metadata 800 x more bandwidth A single mission critical voice stream


20  Not a replacement for LMR !

21  LMR link budget is better than LTE at broadband speeds  LTE range is less than LMR (250mW vs 5W)  4G requires far more sites to match coverage  E.G. Washington D.C. – 12 broadband sites to cover 90% outdoor versus 10 LMR sites to cover 95% indoors  However LTE could scale to non-broadband speeds  Experiments underway to find ways to extend LTE coverage to rural areas (PSCR)

22 FirstNet will be used to send: Data, Text, Video, & Images

23  Fast access  Priority access  Network control

33  Precision Information Environment (PIE) illustrating command and control capabilities in the future A54

34 “Radio problems, communication failures plagued response to Arizona blaze that killed 19 firefighters” - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Saturday, September 28, 2013 failures-blamed-arizona-blaze-killed-19-firefighters-article-1.1470478#ixzz2t1tdDd8r

35  Mission Critical  Communications that are required to maintain safety of first responders and the people with whom they interact  Mission Support  Communications that provide improved operational efficiency, enhance safety, and augment command and control, but are not essential Initial high bandwidth data applications such as streaming video will be for mission support use

36 POTENTIAL PUBLIC SAFETY BROADBAND APPLICATIONS Video Surveillance, Remote monitoring streaming Dynamic Mapping, Weather, Traffic Remote Database Access/Queries (mug shots, fingerprints, reporting, NCIC, CHRI, hot files Instant Messaging, SMS, One-way Notifications, Tactical Chat Rooms Multimedia Command and Control (floor plans, incident stills, surveillance Real Time One and Two Way Video in Vehicles or Handhelds Computer aided dispatch(CAD), Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1-) Geo-Location and Asset Tracking (vehicle, personnel, assets) Records Management Systems AccessMobile Office (bulk file transfer, e-mail, internet web access, VPN) Mobile Incident CommandGeospatial Applications Medical TelemetryAutomated License Plate Recognition Field Based ReportingDigital Signage, Traffic Alerts, Automated Transactions Remote Control of Robotic DevicesStandardized Push-to-Talk (PTT) Voice over IP

37  In an emergency, commercial networks:  Fail

38  In an emergency, commercial networks:  Fail  Get Overloaded

39  Because in an emergency, commercial networks :  Fail  Get overloaded  Don’t provide priority access to public safety

40 FIRSTNET ATTRIBUTE  Coverage  Reliability  Resiliency  Emergency Communications  Group Communications DEFINING PUBLIC SAFETY GRADE  “ Where public safety needs it”  “You can count on it”  “Multiple back-up options”  “Your trusted resource”  “Essential to teamwork”

41  Coverage  3,250 Counties  566 Tribes  Rural, Wilderness, and Island coverage  60,000 Public Safety Agencies  3.8 million square miles

42 Unique Geography and Demographics Require Multiple Solutions – Seamless Operation

43  Not Public Safety Grade  Not Financially Feasible

44  Manhunts  Lost hikers / campers  Rescues  Plane crash

45  Public safety grade design includes:  Extended life battery systems  Back up power systems  Diverse routing of cell site links (overhead, underground, thru air)  Diverse cell site link technology (fiber, coax, microwave, telco, optical, satellite) The majority of cell site outages are due to loss of power and data links

46  Physical  Diverse routing of cells  Mirrored databases  Geographically distributed processing  Operational  Mobile hotspots  Bring your own cell (BYOC)  Cells on Wheels (COWs, COLTs, GOATs, SOWs) Recovering quickly after a network incident is imperative

47  Situational awareness  Save time when seconds count  Save money  Save lives, solve crimes, and keep our communities and first responders safer




51  Meeting # 2 ▪ Identify Regional Team Representatives by: ▪ Name ▪ Discipline (Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement) ▪ RPC Districts ▪ Finalize needs assessment process ▪ Review the Mobile Data Survey tool ▪ Do we need focus groups or smaller meetings by discipline ▪ Assign sector tasks to team representatives

52  What do I want this network to do for me?  Between now and the next meeting please discuss with your peers what a PSBN can do for you.  There will be things come up that we haven’t thought of or considered  We want to be sure all of the possibilities are considered
