Technology Transition Public Safety Workshop Planned


The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau will hold a workshop entitled “Public Safety Imperatives for All-IP Networks” on April 17 and 18, 2014. The workshop will bring together representatives from public safety agencies and organizations, service providers, technology vendors, and other stakeholders to explore the impact of the technology transition on key public safety, emergency response, and national security functions. Participants will seek to identify the conditions, rebuttable presumptions, and relevant factors that are needed to ensure that core public safety values are supported in the transition to an all IP-based infrastructure. Participants will also discuss the public safety criteria that should be applied to the technology transitions. Workshop sessions will focus on day-to-day public safety operations in an all-IP world; disaster preparation and responses in an all-IP world; additional risk factors from cyber exploits on commercial, public and government networks; and the impact of technology transitions on national security and federal government systems.
