    FTTH Council Regulatory Update:  Addressing the FCC’s Proposals to Require Battery Backup for Customer Premises Equipment and Notices and Comment for Copper Retirement

    Thursday, April 16, 2 PM EST

    Register Here

    Last fall, the FCC in its Technology Transitions proceeding proposed that:  (1) all fixed “non line power” network providers offer battery backup capabilities for their customer premises equipment to enable emergency communications; and (2) copper wireline providers notify consumers and receive comment before retiring copper facilities.  Because these requirements have the potential to inhibit FTTH deployments, the Council filed extensive comments with the FCC.  These included a survey commissioned by the Council and conducted by Mike Render (RVA LLC), which provides new market research on the status of in-home telephone communication, including how American make emergency communications.  In this webinar, Mike Render will present the results of his market research, and then we will hear from Tom Cohen, Counsel to the FTTH Council, on the FCC’s proposals and the status of the proceeding.
