Agenda

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Technology advances provide
public safety increased voice and
data transmission capabilities, far
beyond what previously existed.
Converged networking will
eventually provide robust asset
and information sharing
capabilities across disciplines
and jurisdictions.

Public safety should be
ready to leverage these
opportunities!

Why does Public Safety care?

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Land Mobile Radio

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Land Mobile Radio

Tremendous activity in the
LMR arena related to
spectrum
narrowbanding
,
rebanding
, and ‘give back’
initiatives in order to free
up radio frequency for
public safety and
commercial use….

Your agency may
be impacted!

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY


FCC


March 2005 Report and Order 05
-
69


VHF (150


174 MHz) and UHF (421
-
512 MHz) public
safety transmitters to be narrowband compliant by January
1, 2013


FCC accepting waivers to extend
narrowbanding

deadline


Any potential interference issues will be incumbent upon
legacy wideband operator to address and mitigate


Failure to narrowband or receive a waiver could result in
expensive FCC penalties



HR

-
Band spectrum Give Back (UHF 470
-
512MHz) within 9
-

11 years or sooner


Last week,
FCC waived the
narrowbanding

mandate for impacted
agencies

VHF/UHF
Narrowbanding

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

What does this mean?


If operating in this spectrum, your agency
should be narrowband compliant by
1/13/2013, unless it has been issued a
waiver


Includes fixed repeaters and subscriber

units


Risk of penalties for non
-
compliance

VHF/UHF
Narrowbanding

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY


FCC plan to transition 700 MHz band
from 12.5 KHz to 6.25 KHz on December
31, 2016


700 MHz will be TDMA (Time Division
Multiple Access)
-

allows for more traffic
to pass due to “chopping” channel into
sequential time slices



What does this mean for
your agency?



In light of PS Broadband activities,
impacted agencies should follow FCC
activities on this topic. If your agency
uses this spectrum


it is currently
required to meet this transition date.

LTE/PSBN

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY


Long Term Evolution


Technology standard identified for use in developing
nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (PSBN)


PSBN


Single, national network with open, non
-
proprietary,
commercially available standards and be ‘capable of being
used by any public safety entity and by multiple vendors
across all public safety broadband networks operating in
the 700 MHz band.’


Will allow for mission critical data applications (building
records, teleconferencing, video, software applications,
etc) to be managed through nationwide network


Per GAO, Voice may eventually be passed on this network
but could be at least 10 years away

What is LTE and the PSBN?

State Opt Out


Any State can opt out and develop its own
statewide PSBN


If State selects Opt Out, it must provide a plan
to:


Comply with nationwide network minimum
technical interoperability requirements


Be interoperable with nationwide network


If accepted, State may lease spectrum from
and apply to NTIA for funding

HR3630

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY


7 Entities are currently building PSBN pilots
throughout the country using BTOP funding


NTIA has asked all current waiver and grant
recipients to halt the construction of their
PSBN


Concerned that equipment deployed now
may not integrate into the nationwide PSBN


Asked to hold off on infrastructure
deployment until
FirstNet

creates the
nationwide network blueprint

-
owned or
state
-
controlled broadband infrastructure


Governance/Funding Subcommittee: To explore
potential governance and funding models for the
provision of NG911 services
