The FCC continued its active outreach program at CTIA – The Wireless Association on Monday, March 22, in the Las Vegas Convention Center.  The convention was scheduled from March 23 – 25.  The FCC participated as part of an afternoon pre-show program and as usual, heard new, different, and important comments on our licensing systems and how we could improve them.

The FCC also hosted a booth on the convention floor which featured welcoming messages from the Chairman and commissioners.

The Brainstorming Session was to solicit ideas about how to improve the current licensing systems across the FCC Bureaus, and also entertained comments on the newly released beta version of Spectrum Dashboard which allows new search functionality, downloading and mapping for some of our radio services.  We also provided a high level overview of the Spectrum Dashboard beta.

Our outreach program will continue.  Watch for scheduled events in early April where you will be able to join the discussion and learn more about the development of the Consolidated Licensing System.

A Blog from the IWCE Convention

The FCC was an active presence at the International Wireless Communication Expo convention this past week in the Las Vegas Convention Center.  The convention was scheduled from March 10 – 12 and the FCC hosted a booth on the convention floor and held a Brainstorming Session that was open to all attendees and exhibitors.

The Brainstorming Session was to receive ideas about how to improve the current licensing systems across the FCC Bureaus, and the ideas were flowing.  The suggestions crossed multiple systems and numerous licensing related functions, including improvements to access to data through search and data extract enhancements. This Brainstorming Session was only one of many brainstorming sessions that have been held for multiple industry organizations, and represents just one aspect of the increased transparency that the FCC is striving for in its outreach efforts.  The project to consolidate the licensing systems will also include many future interaction activities for the users to provide their input on how the government can improve their services and communication.

We look forward to continuing to work in cooperation with the public to improve how they conduct business with the FCC!
