PHASE 1:

State And Local Governance

This is the first and the most critical step in the FirstNet Nationwide Public Safety 700MHz Broadband Network life cycle. A successful governance model will enable optimized first response or disable communications during a catastrophic man-made or natural event.

Broadband technologies provide many new and powerful capabilities; however, real-time management of network resources is essential and can only be accomplished if a foundational state and local governance model has been established.

In order to achieve the greatest benefits of broadband technology every state must have a governance model that accommodates local government dynamic network resource control.

TDD is the industry leader in developing statewide and regional governance models. TDD has successfully created and achieved state and local approval of governance models in the National Capital Region, State of New York, and the State of Louisiana.
