What is a Public Safety Network, and why are they important?
Public Safety Networks are wireless networks, many of them built using Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), that are used by emergency service organizations and first responders in the event of an emergency. Therefore, they must work at all times.
Public Safety Networks are critical to ensuring safety during a natural disaster or emergency such as fires and floods. Having a working public safety network has the potential to save lives. And that’s where ECSite comes in.
ECSite’s technology deploys automation software that ensures telecom infrastructure testing and management is accurate and secure—it’s precisely how a Public Safety Network needs to be measured and managed.
The SBC has a unique Vision that ECSite supports and is committed to, most importantly the “Three Pillars of In-Building Public Safety Communications.”
Safer Buildings Coalition’s Vision:
Eliminate In-Building “Wireless Dead Zones”
Three Pillars Of In-Building Public Safety Communications:
- Mobile 911 Calls Must Get Out with Location Accuracy
- Mobile Mass Notifications Must Get In
- First Responder Communications Must Work
ECSite is the only company that can automate the testing and measurement of a Public Safety Network with precise, accurate, and cloud-based security.
We will work in concert with the Safer Buildings Coalition and its members, including system integrators, Public-Private Partnerships (P3s), Neutral Hosts, Tier One Carriers, contractors, and other industry leaders to ensure wireless network designs are built to the precise requirements of the SBC.
