As a subject matter expert, DVA provided expertise and assistance to a Midwest state in support of their Public Safety Broadband planning activities. A number of key deliverable items were developed and provided to the client, including:
DVA was engaged by a county attorney to serve as an expert witness in a case relating to a dispute over the implementation of a countywide public safety communications system. DVA reviewed key documentation relating to the system specification; procurement process; vendor contract; acceptance test procedures; and system test and performance results and developed an objective analysis report citing specific inconsistencies and deficiencies with the design, procurement and implementation process.
DVA was engaged to perform an objective evaluation and analysis of technical proposal to reconfigure a large set of frequency holdings in order to allow the licensee to provide both narrowband voice service using Land Mobile Radio (LMR) technology and broadband data services using Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. The evaluation also included an analysis of the potential for interference between the two technologies and recommendations to reduce the probability of that occurrence.
