Public Safety Sharing Demonstration: Spectrum Policy for the 21st Century - The President's Spectrum Policy Initiative [open pdf - 2MB]
"This report fulfills recommendation 9(b) of the President's Spectrum Policy Initiative Report Two of July 2004 which states that the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) should develop and implement one or more demonstration programs to test the operational and cost effectiveness of sharing spectrum and communications infrastructure between federal, state, and/or local governments and private users. After evaluating programs from across the country, NTIA chose the District of Columbia's (District) pilot program, 'Wireless Accelerated Responder Network' (WARN), which was implemented by the District's Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO). NTIA selected the WARN pilot program because it met NTIA's evaluation criteria; specifically, it demonstrated the use of a public safety network on which federal, state, local and private users share the available bandwidth."
