FirstNet for Large-Scale Events

By Connected Nation

In Charlotte, NC more than 77,000 Carolina Panther fans compete with first responder and public safety personnel during games. Networks become overloaded with users when fans use the wireless connection to post pictures during the game and log into social networks.

North Carolina recently joined the FirstNet and AT&T network, which allows for a strong and secure signal for emergency officials to carry out their duties during large events like the Carolina Panther games.

“A FirstNet option is a very viable option for us,” says Michael Tobin, Emergency Management Coordinator for the Charlotte Fire Department when discussing the benefits of FirstNet access. “Having our very own public safety broadband network so that we can have unlimited streaming of data and not have to compete with the general public at that same time, would be a big benefit for us.”
