Nokia Aggregation Router now FirstNet Ready

By

According to a recent announcement, the Nokia 7705 SAR-Hmc wireless service aggregation router is now certified and approved for use on FirstNet, the US-based, nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform for public safety agencies.

Nokia said its service aggregation router is delivered in a rugged, compact platform and is designed to  extend service routing to remote sites, hubs and network edges and provide high capacity network stability. It reportedly supports smart grid distribution automation and other fixed and vehicle-mounted applications for public safety agencies and other organizations that could be called on to support first responders, including transportation, energy, and mining. According to the release, the FirstNet-certified 7705 SAR-Hmc delivers resilient wireless network services by merging IP/MPLS (Multi-protocol Label Switching) fast packet switching with the secure and interoperable FirstNet network.  

“FirstNet devices and modules go through extensive review so first responders can be confident that Nokia’s 7705 SAR-Hmc meets our highest standards for reliability, security and performance,” said Brenda Kittila, VP, FirstNet Operations, AT&T. “The more tools public safety has access to on their network, the more we can help them achieve their mission.”

FirstNet is First Responder Network Authority, an independent agency within the US federal government, and supports communications for more than 13,000 public safety agencies and organizations.

“Keeping first responders and critical infrastructure connected during a crisis keeps all of us safer,” said Ricky Corker, President, Customer Operations for Americas, Nokia. “We’ve purpose-built our 7705 SAR-Hmc for smart grid modernization and it is proven in the utility market. With our FirstNet Ready router, we can now provide secure wireless access to FirstNet across the U.S. for public safety, the utility industry, and state, local and federal government agencies.”
