FirstNet rocks test deployment at Jersey shore


Large concerts can easily overwhelm a city’s communications infrastructure as thousands of fans compete to send messages, pictures and videos from their phones.

Massive amounts of network usage from thousands of people can degrade data transmission, resulting in a dangerous situation for first responders if they are relying on the same cell phone towers to communicate and operate surveillance cameras and command vehicles.  So recent beach concerts in Atlantic City, N.J., provided an ideal opportunity to test JerseyNet, the state’s public safety broadband network and a FirstNet Early Builder project focused on the use of deployable communications assets.
