In 2024, we launched a brand new website for all things 5x5. Check out the 5x5 website to view details from the 2024 summit including the agenda, session speakers, and technology demonstrations. Keep an eye out for information about next year's 5x5, to be held summer 2025.

Collaboration is in our core

Since 2010, PSCR has held an Annual Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting that brings together representatives from public safety, federal agencies, industry, and academia. Participants hear from PSCR engineers and researchers about testing updates, upcoming R&D efforts, and opportunities to get involved, as well as industry leaders and public safety partners on cutting-edge technology findings, features, and functionalities.  

By connecting stakeholders, PSCR ensures the inclusion of unique requirements and diverse perspectives in communications technology R&D. View past meeting materials in our Resource Center to learn more

Starting in 2023, PSCR partnered with the FirstNet Authority to host the first annual 5x5: The Public Safety Innovation Summit. Whether you're a public safety professional, an academic, a government official, or an industry leader, 5x5 is an opportunity to be a part of something extraordinary.
