FirstNet Pre-Proposal Conference and Webcast: On March 10, 2016 at 12:00 pm CST, FirstNet is hosting a pre-proposal conference and public webinar to go over the RFP and potentially discuss questions received through the process detailed in Section L of the RFP. Webcast information is available here http://www.firstnet.gov/content/firstnet-npsbn-pre-proposal-conference
The CTTs are state and territory task teams formed around subjects on which FirstNet is seeking further stakeholder input. Each team will be established for a specific topic and meet over a short period of time. The CTT will provide critical input to FirstNet that will inform network planning and implementation.
The first CTT will be on Quality of Service, Priority and Preemption, leveraging earlier work of FirstNet’s Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC). The concepts define the user’s interaction with the FirstNet network, namely in terms of receiving prioritized access to network resources, maintaining a secure communication link, and a guaranteed level of service performance. QPP policies are essential requirements for FirstNet’s mission critical users, and are most impacted when network traffic levels rise and precious wireless resources become strained.
