NTIA, in cooperation with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the U.S. Department of State's Office of International Communications and Information Policy (CIP), hosted a two-day wireless technology showcase and policy discussion. This two-day event built upon NTIA's "Spectrum Summit" held last year, the findings and recommendations of the FCC's Spectrum Policy Task Force, and the State Department's international policy and regulatory reform efforts by highlighting and demonstrating new and emerging technologies and creating a forum to discuss important spectrum policy issues that are likely to impact tomorrow's ever-changing marketplace. The technology exhibition provided policy makers and members of the public and news media an opportunity to witness live demonstrations of cutting edge wireless technologies and applications. The panel discussions ( webcast archive on FCC server) focused on unlicensed wireless technologies and will allowed technology innovators and entrepreneurs the opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with key policy decision makers.
