Following a rigorous review process, beamFirst is now FirstNet® Verified™ and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog.
beamFirst delivers new levels of situational awareness and first responder communication and safety through near real-time IoT content sharing, live video, sub-second GPS tracking and navigation, Internet of Things (IoT) sensor alerts, warnings and notifications, plus voice and text - all on one screen of any mobile device. We enable migration from legacy systems to true Broadband communication for emergency response. Designed by first responders for first responders, our easy-to-use service functions on the devices your people own and use now. beamFirst delivers the capabilities of multiple apps in one comprehensive service increasing efficiencies and saving money.
FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform – features the first-ever App Catalog geared to first responders, including more than 150 apps relevant to public safety’s mission. This gives FirstNet subscribers a dedicated location to find meaningful new solutions that have been specifically reviewed for use with FirstNet services. Before any mobile solution can be added to the FirstNet App Catalog, it must pass stringent third-party tests for security, relevancy, data privacy and more.
“Our objective is to turn minutes into seconds for emergency response and first responder safety,” stated beamLive’s CEO Mehrdad Negahban. “beamFirst has been designed by first responders for first responders,” Negahban continued, highlighting the beamLive executive team members with emergency response experience whose input was instrumental. “beamFirst is noted for its ease of use and training and is intended to be utilized as an everyday mobile communication tool that can be heightened and expanded during crisis scenarios to enable near real-time, multi-agency communication and collaboration,” Negahban continued.
Achieving a FirstNet Verified designation means beamFirst is a vetted and trusted solution for public safety, meeting FirstNet app requirements. Additionally, FirstNet subscribers will also be able to take advantage of the beamFirst solution while benefitting from the enhanced security provided by the FirstNet network core, which is the only physically separate network core dedicated entirely to public safety in America.
