UTC Applauds FCC for Proposing to Enable All Utilities & Other CII to Access 4.9 GHz Spectrum
“UTC appreciates the efforts of the FCC to provide access to additional spectrum for utilities and other CII. Utilities and CII are undergoing a spectrum crisis, due to increasing demand and shrinking supply of suitable spectrum. Eligibility to this spectrum would help to provide high-capacity communications for fixed and mobile applications. UTC supports the Commission’s proposal and looks forward to working with the Commission going forward to enable utilities and other CII to make more effective use of this spectrum,” UTC President and CEO Connie Durcsak said.
Utility telecommunications is integral to reliable and secure utility services. UTC is the premier trade association navigating the convergence of telecommunications, operations and information technology to identify, innovate and enable mission critical solutions for essential utility services. Since 1948, UTC is the source and resource for information and communications technology (ICT) solutions, collaboration and advocacy for utilities and other critical infrastructure industries.
