FirstNet is the nationwide communications platform dedicated to
America's first responders and public safety community. It's being built
with AT&T (News - Alert) in a public-private partnership with the First Responder
Network Authority to favor the important work first responders do. It
offers technology, features, and functionality designed to properly
handle the rigorous, specific, and niche demands of first responders.
With this much-needed technology upgrade, first responders can connect
to the critical information they need every day and in every emergency.
"We're pleased that Orion Labs' push-to-talk application is now FirstNet
Certified™," said Bob Sloan, Chief Operating Officer, FirstNet at AT&T.
"Having options is important when it comes to first responders'
communications tools. As a FirstNet Certified™ application, public
safety can be confident that Orion Labs' push-to-talk app is a trusted
slution that meets FirstNet requirements for relevancy, security, data
privacy, mobility, resiliency, and scalability."
Historically, first responders have relied primarily on traditional land
mobile radios (LMR) to stay connected during mission-critical
situations. With a new breed of push-to-talk mobile devices on the
market today, public safety teams can augment those communications and
quickly communicate across their organizations and between emergency
agencies with the touch of a button. First responders on FirstNet using
Orion Labs' mobile application receive priority above commercial users,
helping to alleviate network congestion and offering a means of highly
secure, reliable and boundary-free communication.
"Orion Labs was born from our experiences in the fire and emergency
medical services. We're incredibly excited to bring Orion's advanced
communication platform to support first responders on FirstNet," said
Orion Labs' Founder and CEO, Jesse Robbins. "Orion is honored to meet
the high requirements for FirstNet Certified™ apps and hopes to be one
part in helping public safety teams in their mission to save lives and
better protect their communities."
The Orion push-to-talk application is available now through the FirstNet
App Catalog and the Apple (News - Alert) App Store.
