IIoT Coalition Meets with FCC Officials on Private Wireless Spectrum
Thursday, December 19, 2019 | Comments

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Coalition met with FCC officials and described private-enterprise use cases that required access to broader bandwidth and more flexible spectrum.

The IIoT Coalition outlined policy changes that it said would act as incentives for voluntary secondary spectrum market transactions that could promote greater use of spectrum leasing, partitioning and disaggregation opportunities. The IIoT Coalition is a group of industrial entities that rely on wireless communications to conduct their operations efficiently and safely and includes manufacturers and organizations that represent such entities.

The coalition encouraged the FCC to expand eligibility under whatever leasing/partitioning/disaggregation rules are adopted for rural and small carriers in response to the MOBILE NOW Act to also include these entities. It also urged the adoption of buildout requirements for private entities that are more consistent with their operational requirements.
