Atlanta, Jan. XX, 2019 –EDN Communication and Technology, led by Jerome Edmonson, is joining the FirstNet (http://www.firstnet.com/)
In support of AT&T's efforts to deliver FirstNet services to first responders under its contract with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority), AT&T has engaged a group of dealers and solution providers with deep knowledge of public safety. The FirstNet Dealer Program will help put game-changing technology into the hands of first responders throughout the U.S.
"I'm excited EDN Communication was approved to offer FirstNet – a reliable, highly secure, interoperable and innovative public safety communications platform," said Jerome Edmondson, president of EDN Communication and Technology. "FirstNet brings 21st century tools to public safety agencies and first responders to help them stay safe and save lives."
FirstNet is the nationwide communications platform dedicated to America's first responders and public safety community. It's being built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the FirstNet Authority. With this much-needed technology upgrade, first responders can connect to the critical information they need every day and in every emergency.
"Enabling EDN Communication to equip first responders with FirstNet service is a great way to meet public safety where they are," said Stacy Schwartz, vice president, AT&T Public Safety & FirstNet. "The FirstNet Dealer Program makes it easy for public safety agencies to work with the solution providers they know and trust – like EDN Communication – to sign up for FirstNet service. Plus, as a minority-owned business, EDN Communication also represents AT&T's commitment to diversity and inclusion."
AT&T works closely with indirect sellers who will be able to promote, market and co-sell FirstNet ecosystem services. EDN Communication was selected for its focus on 21st century community policing and commitment to smart city solutions, with an emphasis on public safety agencies upgrading technology in urban and inner-city communities.
