ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Federated Wireless, Inc. today announced that Sal D’Itri, General Manager of Government Business, was elected to the Executive Committee of the National Spectrum Consortium, the organization that facilitates the collaboration between the U.S. government and industry in the development of electromagnetic spectrum technologies.
As a member of the Committee, Mr. D’Itri is joining senior executives from industry-leading companies to oversee the development of innovations in shared spectrum that have the potential to expand upon current efforts to share the 3.5GHz band. This includes managing a five-year, $1.25 billion contract that the Consortium received last year from the U.S. Department of Defense to carry out a research and development program on new spectrum access technologies and leverage resources available in the $500 million Spectrum Relocation Fund.
“I am pleased to be a part of this important organization, which illustrates the federal government’s strong commitment to spectrum sharing, even beyond the 3.5GHz band,” Mr. D’Itri said. “The Consortium represents a great opportunity for leaders in this industry to come together to address the challenge of satisfying the vastly increasing demand for electromagnetic spectrum.”
Federated Wireless is developing a dynamic Spectrum Access System (SAS) to bring the benefits of shared spectrum in the 3.5GHz spectrum, as well as in future federal and commercial bands, to Enterprise customers in the Education, Healthcare, Hospitality, Retail and Financial markets. The SAS aims to help alleviate spectrum management challenges and to substantially improve the throughput, performance and capacity of wireless networks.
The company is also developing its CINQ platform, a cloud-hosted data analytics and intelligence solution that provides access to the real-time management of shared spectrum made possible through SAS. CINQ is designed to make it easy for wireless carriers to extend the allocation and management of spectrum resources and enable 5G, the next generation of mobile communications.
“We are pleased that the National Spectrum Consortium has chosen a member of Federated Wireless to help lead this impressive list of Fortune 500 and industry-leading companies,” said Kurt Schaubach, Chief Technology Officer of Federated Wireless. “Our innovative team of researchers and engineers is excited to work with the Consortium to find new avenues for unlocking additional spectrum capacity for military and commercial users.“
