In 2013, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a narrowbanding mandate that prompted many agencies to consider making the transition from analog to digital P25. While the mandate did not require this transition, it did require existing wideband systems to be modified or replaced to comply. Agencies were forced to reconsider their communication requirements and seek alternative solutions and many found that the transition to digital made sense.
