    By the FirstNet CTO Devices Group
    Recognizing that the public safety user community will demand support for personal devices on the nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN), FirstNet is taking steps to develop and implement an effective BYOD policy. The BYOD policy must provide adequate security and control of the device, while still providing an acceptable user experience when accessing the NPSBN. It must also operate in real time to analyze BYOD access and identify anomalies.

    FirstNet is planning to support personal devices on the NPSBN through a BYOD policy that is being developed as part of the overall network architecture.
