To assess impacts of 5G on the public safety community, OIC-TC tasked the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab (JHU APL) to employ a deep dive approach to investigate specific 5G technologies which will enable information sharing at the incident area “edge” network.
This document serves as a source of Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Implementation Guides resulting from the evaluation of publicly available documents and the implementation of ICAM-enabled systems in a sandbox.
Commercial cellular networks, and the soon to be implemented, the First Responder Network Authority’s (FirstNet) Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN), will provide first responders with the ability to exchange vast amounts of data in support of their mission. However, coverage and capacity limitations will continue to challenge the dependability of these networks. In areas or circumstances where fixed network coverage and capacity are inadequate, deployable systems are considered essential to fill these gaps.
