FirstNet Officials Reiterate MCPTT Plans

FirstNet officials reiterate MCPTT plans for March 2019, hope to accelerate firefighter-location solutions

FirstNet staff yesterday presented board members with a new roadmap for the organization that includes a technological commitment to support mission-critical-push-to-talk (MCPTT) technology across the nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN) by March 2019.

One of the most-discussed aspects of FirstNet is the implementation of MCPTT over LTE, because its effectiveness could impact decisions associated with the future investments that local and state public-safety agencies make in the LMR systems currently providing mission-critical voice communications for first responders. MCPTT is part of LTE Release 13 that was approved last year and is slated to be implemented in FirstNet by March 2019.
