Two upcoming meetings jointly hosted by ITS and NIST’s Communications Technology Laboratory
Registration is Open for the Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting June 7-9, 2016, in San Diego, CA
Registration is open for the three-day Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting that brings together representatives from public safety, Federal agencies, industry, and academia to discuss critical issues related to public safety broadband communications and the deployment of a nationwide public safety network. The meeting is sponsored by the Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) program, a joint effort of NTIA/ITS and NIST/CTL. For more information about the meeting, click here.
Registration is open for ISART 2016 August 1-3, 2016 in Boulder, CO
The topic of the 15th International Symposium on Advanced Radio Technologies will be Spectrum Forensics, that is, spectrum measurements that support interference monitoring, investigation, and enforcement. As more and more spectrum users are pressed to operate in shared bands, effective spectrum sharing will require an entirely new legal and regulatory environment, as well as sophisticated technologies that can reliably thread the three parameters of time, frequency, and location to deliver acceptable service in shared bands without interfering with other users of the same or adjacent bands. Spectrum forensics will help build and maintain good fences to make good neighbors. A prequel tutorial will provide essential background for ISART participants who are not familiar with the FCC Enforcement Bureau’s criteria and process for both civil and criminal spectrum infringement investigations. Several meetings will be collocated with ISART—a meeting of the Commerce Spectrum Management Advisory Committee (CSMAC), the Wireless Spectrum Research and Development (WSRD) monthly meeting and a Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) Spectrum Sharing Committee meeting that will run through Friday.
