Spectrum Policy and the Wireless Engineer:
Navigating the Regulatory Maze to Get New Technology from Laboratory to Market
The IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) is coming to Washington, DC, November 26-30, 2007. This is the first major IEEE conference in Washington in several years and covers many different aspects of telecommunications technology from wireless to to optical.
Anne Linton, Esq., Patton Boggs LLP and I will be giving a half day tutorial on the above topic Monday morning, November 26 at 9-12:30. Registration for the tutorial is $300.
Here's a summary of the tutorial:
- Wireless technology is subject to significant government regulation all over the world. This tutorial is an overview for wireless engineers of the regulatory issues you may encounter in moving a new technology from the lab to the marketplace and how you to plan for them. These issues deal with frequency allocation, experimental licensing, licensing, unlicensed systems, and equipment authorization. Knowing what the issues are enables the developer to make realistic plans in parallel to R&D efforts.
