New York, NY, April 11, 2022 – Following a rigorous review process, GPC Smart is now FirstNet® Verified™ and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog.
GPC Smart, a Syneroid Technologies product, is the nation’s first wireless communication platform dedicated to pets and public safety for use by first responders. It is a unified system that allows first responders to securely access and share animal information on FirstNet. It is the first and only pet identification solution available via the FirstNet App catalog.
FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform – features the first-ever App Catalog geared to first responders, featuring more than 165 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.
“GPC Smart is an animal I.D. system that brings pet identification from its analog past into today’s digital information age. Our pet recovery system consists of digital pet tags and implanted microchips that both work with a Universal Pet Registry, accessible through the GPC Smart app and smartphone, 24/7, from anywhere in the world. Our system is the most efficient, cost-effective and humane way to reunite lost pets with their owners.” said Tom Ickovic, CEO, Syneroid Technologies.
Achieving a FirstNet Verified™ designation means GPC Smart 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 GPC Smart solution while benefiting from FirstNet’s highly secure network core, which is the only physically separate network core dedicated entirely to public safety in America.
Built with AT&T, in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority, FirstNet is bringing public safety communications into the 21st century with new, innovative capabilities to strengthen first responders’ incident response. And it’s helping them connect to the critical information they need – every day and in every emergency.
