Knapp to Retire from FCC
Wednesday, November 27, 2019 | Comments

Julius Knapp, chief of the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology (OET), plans to retire from public service Jan. 3, after 45 years at the FCC and more than 13 years as chief of OET.

“Julie Knapp is an FCC institution, and I will miss him for his expertise, his leadership and his friendship,” said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. “He’s delivered incalculable value for American consumers over the years. As just one example, if you have a device that uses the airwaves, the chances are that you’re benefiting from Julie’s efforts. He’s played a key role in all of the commission’s spectrum efforts over many years, from freeing up spectrum for 4G and 5G to making more spectrum available for unlicensed operations like Wi-Fi to encouraging technologies of the future, like wireless medical services. He has also been instrumental in modernizing and streamlining the FCC’s equipment authorization process, which helps get new devices into consumers’ hands quickly and safely.”
