The Wireless Innovation Forum is pleased to provide our comments on the Notice of Inquiry on the FirstNet conceptual network architecture.  Our comments summarize extensive analysis previously performed by the Forum; for convenience we have included excerpts of the referenced documents in a separate file as Appendices.  The complete referenced documents can be found on the Wireless Innovation Forum website.

Our analysis generally pre-dates the presentation of the FirstNet conceptual network architecture, and we recognize that the concepts presented in this response will require further refinement as the FirstNet architecture is refined and detailed.  We welcome an opportunity for continued dialog to both present the concepts in greater detail and to understand from FirstNet the areas that warrant additional study.
