access to multi-tenant buildings, commercial properties, etc.
September 30, 2019 Wasington, D.C.
GN Docket 17-142 Improving Competitive Broadband Access to Multiple Tenant Environments.
The Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (“iCERT” or “Industry Council”)1 respectfully submits the following Reply in response to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Declaratory Ruling released by the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC” or “Commission”) on July 12, 20192 in connection with the above-referenced docket. In summary, promoting shared access to DAS facilities for all 4G, 5G, and LMR networks will promote public safety by helping to ensure that citizens and first responders alike, regardless of which networks they use, can communicate effectively inside buildings. iCERT urges the FCC to consider these important public safety issues in this proceeding and ensure that any actions it takes both encourages further investment in DAS and helps to facilitate shared access to DAS locations.
