TIA Applauds White House Action to Encourage Spectrum Sharing

ARLINGTON, VA (June 14, 2013) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today applauded the White House for taking actions to improve federal spectrum management. The White House today released President Obama’s new memorandum, which encourages spectrum sharing to enhance efficiency.

“TIA has consistently called on the federal government to develop a comprehensive and accurate picture of its own spectrum usage, and the measures announced today represent a very meaningful step towards that goal,” said TIA President Grant Seiffert.  “Today’s actions will also facilitate greater government-industry collaboration by increasing information-sharing regarding current uses of federal spectrum.”

Seiffert continued, “TIA also applauds the Administration’s action to target federal R&D funding towards developing spectrum sharing technologies and increasing spectrum efficiency.  We look forward to working with the Administration in the months ahead as these important initiatives are implemented.”
