FCC Eases Rules for Experiments to Yield Wireless Gadgets

The Federal Communications Commission eased requirements for getting permission to use U.S. airwaves for experiments that could accelerate development of new wireless devices.

“Wireless innovation is key to U.S. competitiveness,” FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said before the agency voted 5-0 today to approve the rules change, which he said would stimulate research and reduce time for products to move to market.

With the changes, laboratories and universities will have “more opportunity to dream big and create,” Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel said.

The changes include a new medical experimentation license to help expand the ways wireless devices can improve health care, Rosenworcel said. The changes also make market testing of new products less cumbersome, she said.
