HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!
I trust that 2014 will be a great year for Public Safety and Communications. The first auctions for more spectrum will start this month, FirstNet will continue to make progress and I am hopeful that we will all gain a better understanding of the network architecture, partners, and implementation schedules. I know that those working for FirstNet are truly committed to making 2014 a banner year for moving forward and one which will set the stage for all future work.
Again a lite news week but I expect the first full week of 2014 to bring us a lot more news so stay tuned!
