Alcatel-Lucent Events to Explore FirstNet, Cloud Technology | Broadband Illinois

FirstNet and the transition into what’s being called the Personal Cloud Era is the focus of two events led by Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise July 17 and 18 in Naperville.

 

On Wednesday, July 17, the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Dynamic Tour will convene global experts on how businesses and other enterprises can harness cloud technology to automate and unify data networks to improve communication operations and customer services.

 

On Thursday, July 18, Alcatel-Lucent will hold a seminar on FirstNet, NTIA’s nationwide campaign to improve communication technology for public safety services.

 

Broadband Illinois, the state’s non-profit broadband initiative will have a presence at both events.

 

Brad Housewright, the organization’s eTeams Director, said FirstNet is an extremely important program for the state, and he hopes to learn more about how LTE technology can advance communication for emergency personnel.

 

“I want to gain a better understanding of how Broadband Illinois eTeams need to best focus our efforts on aggregating and collaborating with stakeholders and providers in this process,” Housewright said. 

 

The FirstNet seminar will examine the possibility of real-time first responder communications including voice, data, pictures, streaming video, and collaboration to enhance safety and decision making.

 

Enhanced wireless technology is essential to improve public safety entities. However, agency budgets and limited and personnel skills are constraining emergency crews when it comes to mobile broadband adoption.

 

 “We want to ensure Illinois is getting the best and most efficient public safety broadband network for responders,” Housewright said. “This effort will take the attention of many key industry sectors to get Illinois Firstnet up and running. We can't afford not to make this the most effective tool for our first responders.”
