First Responder Networks

Public Safety Broadband Communications


The 700 MHz Band is a critical spectrum in public safety communications. Designated by Congress as a public safety spectrum unavailable to commercial operators, the so-called D-Block band (758-763 MHz and 788-793 MHz) has excellent properties for first responder communications. 700 MHz signals easily penetrate buildings and walls and cover large geographic areas. USAT is a licensed dealer of all three of the major first responder network platforms: AT&T FirstNet, Verizon Frontline, and T-Mobile's Connected Heroes program.
