FCC Seeks Input on IP Telephony Trials

The FCC has asked for public input on the migration from wired to wireless networks. The issue is of interest to radio stations that rely on the carriers’ telco infrastructure for some aspects of content distribution.

As telephony continues to evolve from a copper-to-fiber infrastructure, the FCC is looking at potential trials that would provide data on VoIP interconnection, next-generation 911 services (NG911) and the transition from wireline networks to wireless networks in general.

In the VoIP trial, for example, the agency is asking for help to decide whether industry standards are needed regarding codecs, signaling and quality-of-service measurements.

The agency seeks comment from stakeholders on various aspects of planned trials.

The request for comments is the suggestion of the Technology Transitions Policy Task Force.

Comments to GN Docket 13-5 are due July 8 and replies Aug. 7.
