AT&T activates FirstNet public safety network core

Wednesday 28 March 2018 | 11:30 CET | News
AT&T has announced the launch of a dedicated evolved packet network core for its FirstNet LTE public safety network. In a statement, AT&T said the core is designed to act as the "brain and nervous system" for the network, controlling the FirstNet experience and separating public safety traffic from all commercial traffic. The company specified that while all networks have a core, this is the first-ever evolved packet core dedicated entirely to public safety.
