NTIA supports the Federal Communications Commission in its efforts to continue evaluating the rules for ultrawideband (UWB) transmission systems. NTIA believes that the rules adopted by the Commission in the First Report and Order for UWB strike a balance between protecting critical federal systems while permitting UWB technology to evolve. NTIA also agrees with the Commission that significant changes to the rules should not be considered until more experience has been gained with UWB technology.
