CEL-FI applauds the Federal Communications Commission’s decision today to provide greater regulatory certainty to wireless signal booster manufacturers.
San Diego, Calif. – February 20, 2013 – CEL-FI, by Nextivity Inc., a leading developer of in‐building coverage technology, applauds the Federal Communications Commission’s decision today to provide greater regulatory certainty to wireless signal booster manufacturers. The FCC’s decision strikes a careful balance between the needs of signal booster manufacturers to have the flexibility to design and deploy these products, and the needs of carriers to minimize the potential for interference with their network operations. The order shows the FCC’s commitment to ensuring the ongoing availability of signal boosters, and is an important step in ensuring that all stakeholders have the regulatory clarity needed to continue to promote the innovation and development of this important sector. The decision also marks another step in the FCC’s commitment to promote the availability of broadband Internet services in the United States.
CEL-FI’s CEO, Werner Sievers, stated: “The FCC staff worked tirelessly on this order, brought numerous stakeholders together, developed a set of technical rules with the support of the industry, and secured the consent of several major wireless carriers for the use of signal boosters in their licensed frequencies. We thank the FCC for its commitment to seeing this proceeding through to its conclusion.” The FCC’s decision today will provide CEL-FI, by Nextivity Inc the flexibility it needs to continue to develop advanced commercial and consumer signal boosters in the future, and the company looks forward to working with the FCC in the future to educate our customers about the use of our signal boosters.
