The State of New Jersey Broadband Network

The New Jersey Broadband Network project proposes to deploy an interoperable 700 MHz public safety wireless broadband network in the Northern New Jersey Urban Area Security Initiative region, which includes over half of the state’s public safety responders. The project covers the counties of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, and Union—encompassing 1,487 square miles a population of 4.5 million, and more than 30,000 public safety users. The network plans to leverage the existing state-owned, 77-tower network, deploying 253 miles of microwave middle mile network in three rings connecting to a 100-mile fiber backbone.
