What is FirstNet?
FirstNet is the nationwide public safety broadband network, services, and solutions that are dedicated to first responders and those that support them. It is more than a network! It includes advanced services, applications, and purpose-built devices. By working with you, we are committed to advancing public safety and making your communications simpler, faster, and more collaborative.
Why Work with Two Way Direct?
AT&T and the First Responder Network Authority grant “FirstNet Dealer” status to a select group of companies with a deep knowledge of public safety. Dealers are authorized to be your FirstNet sales consultant to ensure this game-changing technology gets into the hands of first responders throughout the United States. Two Way Direct is proud to be a FirstNet Dealer, and part of the FirstNet mission.
FirstNet is built for public safety and inspired by public safety.
It works across the country. One example is Brazos County Texas, home of the Fighting Texas Aggies, and College Station. There, FirstNet is fully adopted and deployed county-wide by the Sheriff’s Office, and it is proving to be a critical part of how the responders are doing their job every day.
The concept of a dedicated broadband network for first responders started as a recommendation from the FCC 911 commission report. Since then, this has been a major initiative for our government. The First Responder Network Authority, or FirstNet was established to oversee the effort.
In 2017, AT&T was honored with the opportunity to provide the capabilities to build FirstNet. After a lot of hard work, they wrapped up the project with all 50 states and territories opting to participate.
While FirstNet is a stand-alone brand, it has a special relationship with AT&T. FirstNet is built with AT&T for and by public safety professionals. Today, we are working with you to develop tools that will help you do your job better.
It makes sense to partner with experience. AT&T has over 100 years of experience in providing emergency response solutions, and it has leading security measures that ensure FirstNet is secure and built for dependability.
