WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Communications Commission’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau announces a workshop on “Public Safety Imperatives for All-IP Networks” to be held in April.

The half-day workshop will be held on April 17 and April 18, 2014.

The workshop will bring together representatives from public safety agencies and organizations, service providers, technology vendors, and other stakeholders to explore the impact of the technology transition on key public safety, emergency response, and national security functions.

Participants will have the opportunity to share their real-world expertise and contribute their individual views and analysis as to how an all-IP-based infrastructure can support a range of public safety mission requirements. Participants will also discuss the public safety criteria that should be applied to the technology transitions.

The workshop will be free and open to the public at FCC Headquarters in Washington.
