Brian Hendricks, Head of Policy and Government Relations for the America’s Region at Nokia talks with TIA’s Dileep Srihari about the FirstNet and Public Safety aspects of the Spectrum Act, offering an introduction to what the law did, where things stand today, plus some interesting perspectives five years later.
Howard Symons, Vice Chair of the Incentive Auction Task Force at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), explains the mechanics of the impending incentive auction for broadcast spectrum, to be then later sold to wireless carriers. Mock auctions for spectrum bidders is the norm, according to Symons, but due to the novelty of this year’s incentive auction, the FCC will be hosting a practice auction for spectrum bidders.
