The Department of the Navy has agreed to deploy a national public safety broadband network from AT&T and the First Responder Network Authority across Navy and Marine Corps installations in the U.S., Seeking Alpha reported Monday.

“We are honored to help the Department of the Navy transition to the FirstNet public safety communications platform,“ said Mike Leff, vice president for defense at AT&T's public sector business.

“It's a promising first step toward eventual procurement, deployment and management of FirstNet-based services,“ he added.

The department issued a policy directive to provide guidance on the FirstNet deployment.

Under the guidance, Navy Installations Command and Marine Corps Installations Command leaders will oversee the development of technical, functional and budgetary requirements and procedures related to FirstNet implementation and should order FirstNet devices and services under the DON Wireless Spiral 3 contract vehicle through the General Services Administration.
