A collection of telecommunications companies have banded together with the goal of creating a nationwide LTE voice and data network for first responders. The group formed a new company, called Rivada Mercury, to manage the deployment. The participating firms include Rivada Networks, Harris Corp., Ericsson, Nokia, Fujitsu, Intel Security, and Black & Veatch. Rivada Mercury will use 700MHz spectrum (Band 14), licensed to FirstNet, to build the network. Rivada says a key differentiator in its model is the use of Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage (DSA) technology. This will allow Rivada to sell excess capacity to commercial tenants without impacting first responders' access to the network. Rivada will rely on this strategy to generate the income needed to fund the network. Rivada Mercury did not say when it expects to begin work on the network, nor when it expects to finish deploying it.
