Mississippi Education, Safety and Health Network (MESHNet)

The State of Mississippi’s MESHNet project aims to deploy a 700 MHz interoperable public safety wireless broadband network to every public safety agency in the state. The project will leverage 134 towers with the state’s 700 MHz public safety Land Mobile Radio system, and expects to provide an average of 1 Mbps to user equipment in public safety vehicles moving at speeds up to 55 mph with 95 percent reliability.
The enhanced public safety system proposes to provide first responders and law enforcement officials with live streaming video capabilities, situational awareness during critical events, Computer Aided Dispatching, mapping and field reporting capabilities, and immediate database access to information for tactical response to routine and emergency situations.
