EWA Seeks to Address PLMR Needs Through IIot Coalition
EWA continues to work collaboratively with the IIoT Coalition (Industrial Internet of Things) on strategies to address the spectrum needs of the private land mobile radio (PLMR) community. Last week, IIoT Coalition representatives met with staff of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), including those working on the National Spectrum Strategy which guides spectrum policy for the United States. During the meeting, NTIA expressed support for the Coalition’s efforts to identify appropriate spectrum, potentially including Federal spectrum, and for policies that would allow non-consumer-oriented applicants to meet their communications requirements, including through auctions and spectrum partitioning/disaggregation. The Coalition intends to continue its efforts with NTIA and other agencies to promote these initiatives.
