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.
