WASHINGTON - "We thank the FCC for issuing its Order implementing technical and operational rules for FirstNet. Unification of the technical service requirements consolidates and streamlines regulatory requirements applicable to the public safety broadband network.  We also applaud the FCC's actions in lifting the freeze on device certifications, paving the way for certification of devices in Band 14.  This will enable vendors to ship products capable of operating over the FirstNet network in the near future."
