FirstNet (FN), an organization established under The Department of Commerce (DOC), National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), requests information on smartphones, routers, tablets, modems, specialized devices, security and privacy devices/applications, device management, other wireless equipment, applications. While the market for these items is still subject to a number of assumptions, it's widely believed to be at least 2 million first responders.

Please see the attached Request For Information (RFI).

Added: May 02, 2013 2:16 pm
This amendment is being issued to reassure all participating vendors that FirstNet will protect their proprietary information. Please mark any information provided in response to this RFI that you wish to protect from public disclosure as "proprietary", and FirstNet will protect it accordingly. FirstNet will not release to the public any information marked "proprietary" without a vendor's express permission.


Furthermore, RFI responders are advised that all individuals who have supported FirstNet in the development of requirements for this solicitation, both as contractor personnel or as government personnel, are prohibited from disclosing proprietary or source selection information and from directly or indirectly providing information, support or consultation to third parties in any way regarding any vendor's participation in any acquisition to meet FirstNet's requirements.


Additionally, please note that the RFI's device management section is meant to ask about the client's capabilities within the device. A separate network entity, the mobile device manager, will provide the server/services side of the end to end architecture. All device vendors will be expected to support an open and standard interface that allows that server to execute the appropriate client actions.
