FCC: Public safety must use LTE

The FCC voted to require first responders to use LTE technology for their new wireless broadband networks. The commission voted 5-0 to adopt the new rules, and is also seeking comment on interoperability, coverage requirements, security and encryption, and interference prevention. Importantly, the FCC still has not decided the fate of the D Block of the 700 MHz band, including whether the spectrum should be auctioned off or given directly to the public-safety community. Article
