New connectivity will help advance public safety, improve internet access for area communities
Viaero Wireless Technologies, Inc. and its subsidiaries were recently selected by AT&T to support the deployment of FirstNet – the nationwide, wireless communications platform dedicated to America’s first responders and public safety community – across rural Colorado and Nebraska, as well as select portions of South Dakota and Wyoming.
Based on the collaboration with AT&T, Viaero Wireless will help build out additional LTE coverage across rural communities in these four states, adding Band 14 spectrum and AT&T commercial LTE spectrum bands to hundreds of its cellular sites. Band 14 spectrum is high-quality spectrum that provides public safety with a dedicated lane of connectivity when needed. Construction, deployment, maintenance and backhaul services to these sites will be handled by Viaero and its affiliates.
As stated by Frank DiRico, President of Viaero Wireless Technologies, Inc., “We are looking forward to this fast-paced deployment to support FirstNet and one of the key objectives of the public safety network: delivering reliable connectivity to rural and remote first responders.”
FirstNet is for all public safety – career and volunteer, urban, rural or tribal. It is being built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the FirstNet Authority. Mandated by Congress, FirstNet is designed to strengthen and modernize public safety communications, helping first responders connect to the critical information they need – every day and in every emergency.
