Cellular Network Congestion and Minnesota Public Safety
Minnesota Ag Connection - 03/25/2020
Emergency communications are a critical component of a comprehensive response to the COVID-19 pandemic and public safety's wireless devices must have reliable network connectivity for professionals to efficiently carry out their public safety missions.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety on Tuesday asked people to please review a memo at https://bit.ly/2UfeUWz for information about how to mitigate any degradation of service that you may experience on your cellular networks.
"These are unprecedented times and the Minnesota Department of Public Safety division of Emergency Communication Networks (DPS-ECN) remains in regular contact with the wireless carriers to help ensure that Minnesota public safety/public service users have the resources necessary to support their response efforts," officials reported.
