The Nebraska Regional Interperability Network (NRIN) system build out is funded by grant dollars awarded to local government for interoperability of multiple communication systems across Nebraska. Local government owns and operates the network.
The NRIN system is governed by individuals from all aspects of public safety. With public safety a top priority of the NRIN system, members of the Governance group work to make the NRIN system reliable with multiple redundancies built in.
The network is owned by local government and in place to provide cost effective communications solutions to government entities across the state. Some uses include connection of 911 Telephone Systems and Connection of local dispatch centers to radio systems across the state.
The NRIN governance board is currently working with the Nebraska Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) to provide Network Operation Center services as well as monitoring and management of the network.
A contract approved and signed by the NRIN governance board with Platte Valley Communications provides centralized maintenance and repair services to the NRIN network.
