Hafa Adai and welcome to The Guam Public Safety Broadband Network Website!
The Guam Public Safety Broadband Network (Guam PSBN) is an island-wide program to prepare Guam for the design, deployment and operation of the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN), the nation’s first dedicated high-speed wireless broadband network for public safety.
Built on a single reliable and interoperable platform, the network will provide first responders with mission-critical, high-speed data services (location information, images, video, and maps) to supplement the voice capabilities of land mobile radio (LMR) networks. Utilizing the most advanced long term evolution (LTE) wireless technology as well as existing infrastructure when possible, the network will support faster, better-coordinated emergency response across local jurisdictions; state, territory, and tribal lines; and US borders.
The Guam PSBN team – a program granted to Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense - is collaborating with the federal First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) to develop a state network plan based on Guam’s unique coverage challenges and the requirements of Guam’s public safety community.
Outreach efforts are now under way on Guam to inform first responders and other public safety stakeholders on this initiative and to gather information on their specific communications challenges, coverage needs and user requirements. This information will provide key inputs into the network design.
