GPC Smart® and FirstNet for National Animal Disaster Preparedness Day

FirstNet Subscribers Can Access GPC Smart® via the FirstNet App Catalog

New York, NY, May 8, 2023

Following a rigorous review process, GPC Smart® is 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 190 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 proud to support pets by providing intelligent identification for everyday use and on National Animal Disaster Preparedness Day. In addition, through our FirstNet Verified designation, we can ensure that pets are part of emergency plans and have emergency contacts readily available to help keep them safe.” 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.

“We only add applications to the FirstNet App Catalog that are high quality and relevant to public safety. And we’re pleased that GPC Smart® is now Verified and available to FirstNet subscribers,” said Scott Agnew, assistant vice president, product marketing, FirstNet Program at AT&T. “GPC Smart® will bring public safety additional capabilities to help streamline the process of reuniting pets with their owners. It’s the quickest and simplest recovery method possible.”
