NIST test public-safety LTE

National Institute of Standards and Technology is busily testing products for the planned nationwide LTE public-safety network in USA.

The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, enacted Feb. 22, established the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) to develop the nationwide public-safety LTE network under an FCC license for both the existing public-safety broadband spectrum (763-769 MHz/793-799 MHz) and the spectrally adjacent D Block (758-763 MHz/788-793 MHz), which the act reallocated to public safety. The order did not specify procedures for transferring the existing 700 MHz spectrum license from PSST to FirstNet.
