Mike Leff

TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 2, 2019 — Mike Leff, vice president for defense within AT&T‘s (NYSE: T) public sector business, said the company is working with the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps to understand the needs of each base for the delivery of public safety communications capabilities under the FirstNet program, ExecutiveBiz reported April 23.

“The Navy is looking at how FirstNet is going to be able to provide the Navy and the public-safety community and first responders with a very high set of quality-of-service and pre-emption capabilities,” Leff said, according to a GCN report published April 22.

Leff noted the Department of the Navy, which unveiled April 1 its decision to opt into the AT&T-run nationwide public safety broadband network, could see value in FirstNet in the areas of smart base applications, deployable network assets as well as the application ecosystem.
