ESChat’s secure push-to-talk application is now available on FirstNet, the nationwide public safety communications platform dedicated to first responders.
As a FirstNet-certified app, ESChat meets FirstNet’s and the First Responder Network Authority’s standards in the categories of public safety relevancy, security, data privacy, availability, resiliency and scalability. ESChat is available through the FirstNet App Catalog, to which all and only FirstNet subscribers have access, which means that first responders using ESChat will be supported by the exclusive benefits of FirstNet service, including First Priority, which enables priority and preemption.
“Our inclusion in the FirstNet App Catalog as a ‘FirstNet-Certified’ application means ESChat users on FirstNet will be supported by the platform’s unmatched advantages,” said Josh Lober, president, ESChat. “Having participated in many FirstNet special events, we are keenly aware that FirstNet will be a key differentiator, assuring public safety has access to reliable communication under the most stressed network conditions.”
