DHS – Implementing the National Emergency Communications Plan

CISA Implementing the NECP Webinar - 5G Impact on Emergency Communications
New and emerging technologies offer advanced capabilities to enhance command, control, and situational awareness for emergency response. No single technological solution can address all emergency communications challenges. The arrival of 5G – the fifth-generation technology standard for cellular networks – is one example. It can provide an opportunity to enhance telecommunications operations, support information-sharing, improve efficiency and response time, augment security, and increase capacity for more connected devices. The SAFECOM Nationwide Survey found that more public safety organizations (60%) are currently using a cellular system compared to land mobile radio (57%), and of those using cellular and long-term evolution  networks, the majority report using them for voice rather than data services. This webinar will identify actions organizations can take to prepare for the implementation of new solutions like 5G.
