Beginning January 1, 2021, all rate-of-return (RoR) companies receiving A-CAM I funding, as well as Rural Broadband Experiment (RBE) winners and Alaska Plan companies, are required to begin their year of pre-testing for the broadband measurement filing requirements. In a recent webinar, we cleared up much of the confusion about who has to start testing, how to test, and what equipment to use. JSI’s regulatory experts and N-Com’s engineers presented critical information about both the technical and the USAC filing aspects of the FCC’s broadband testing rules.
Our webinar provides you with the most up-to-date information and extensive analysis of this challenging requirement, including:
- An overview of the rules adopted in the 2019 Performance Measures Order on Reconsideration;
- How to use USAC’s Performance Measures Module (PMM), including how it will generate random subscribers to test;
- Which testing equipment is available now and is best suited to different technologies; and
- Technical considerations, such as the testing end point and other important factors.
This webinar recording would be good for both technical and management/regulatory staff who will be involved in your company’s broadband testing process. And even though only some RoR carriers begin pre-testing in 2021, all high-cost recipients of A-CAM II, Legacy RoR and CAF Phase II auction winners would benefit from JSI’s first comprehensive broadband testing webinar, as those companies will begin pre-testing in January 2022.
A recording of the webinar is available for $249. Contact Brenda Cordwell in the Maryland office at 240-556-1295 if you’d like to purchase the recording of this webinar.
