Security Bureau

The Emergency Response Interoperability Center (ERIC) is responsible for developing and implementing a national interoperability framework for the 700 MHz nationwide interoperable broadband public safety wireless network. As broadband standards and technology evolve, ERIC will develop and implement technical requirements and procedures for ensuring a nationwide level of interoperability and operability. ERIC will establish mechanisms to address operability, roaming, priority access, gateway functions and interfaces, and interconnectivity of public safety broadband wireless networks. ERIC is also responsible for developing authentication and encryption requirements for common public safety broadband applications and network usage. ERIC also works closely with the public safety community, industry and the FCC's federal partners on these issues.
