Collocation Workshop

May 1, 2012, 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM EDT
445 12th St., SW., Commission Meeting Room, Washington, DC

The FCC's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, in cooperation with the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA), hosted a workshop focusing on collocations of wireless and broadband antennas on wireless and other communications towers (e.g. AM Radio towers) and structures (e.g. water towers) on Tuesday May 1, 2012, in the Commission Meeting Room at FCC Headquarters in Washington, DC.

The workshop provided an overview of wireless collocations that augment mobile broadband and wireless services in cities and communities. The workshop helped inform municipal leaders, planners and interested members of the public how wireless collocations can provide benefits and economic opportunities by expanding mobile broadband, wireless data coverage, and aiding first responders.
