TIA Applauds FCC Ruling on IP Transition Tests
Ruling Allows Communications Networks to Examine How to Best Accelerate Technology Transition to IP

Arlington, VA (January 30, 2014) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today applauded the FCC and Chairman Wheeler for unanimously voting to allow communication networks to conduct pilot programs that would examine any possible issues that may arise during the transition to Internet Protocol (IP) networks.  The ruling took place today during an open meeting of the FCC.

“The FCC and Chairman Wheeler have the foresight to ensure that the inevitable transition of legacy transmission platforms and technologies to Internet Protocol networks will occur in an organized and orderly fashion,” said Danielle Coffey, TIA’s Vice President of Government Affairs.  “Facilitating the IP transition is one of the most significant steps the Commission can take to affirmatively help promote broadband deployment and infrastructure investment while serving the public interest.”
