United States Department of Homeland Security SHARES Overview – Operational Practice for Cable Sector Operators

SCTE has partnered with the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on their high frequency (HF) radio network program– SHAred RESources or SHARES for short. The program administered by DHS’s National Coordinating Center for Communications (NCC), provides a means for users with a national security, essential service and emergency preparedness mission to communicate when landline, satellite, public safety and cellular communications are unavailable. This document’s purpose is to provide an easy to follow guide to help cable industry staff understand the requirements for participating in SHARES.
