The Internet of Things is Coming...
Oh, It’s Already Here!
IEEE EMC Society Washington/NoVA Chapter Meeting
February 15, 2017 6:30- 8:30 p.m.
ANSI Conference Room
1899 L St NW
Join us to hear more about the “IoT” and ramifications of the technologies that will enable the next generation of our online lives. We will hear from Ira Keltz with the FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology on the FCC’s work on the Internet of Things.
The always-on connectedness of devices will figure prominently in how we work, communicate, socialize and raise the next generation of Netizens. The FCC’s policies on IoT will broadly affect the technologies of the future. Demands for spectrum, for instance, will be one part of the puzzle. Access to the internet, Net Neutrality, privacy and security are other hot spots in the development of US and global policy. The development of the IoT will further spur the development of “5G” Communications technologies.
Ira Keltz is Deputy Chief of the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology. In this role, he assists in managing several divisions of engineers, attorneys and economists in the development of telecommunications policies for spectrum use in the United States. Mr. Keltz is responsible for balancing complex engineering, policy, economic and public interest issues to implement national spectrum policy for non-Federal spectrum users. This includes allocating spectrum for licensed services, setting technical rules for unlicensed devices, and implementing procedures for equipment certification.
Mr. Keltz previously served as Chief of the Office of
Engineering and Technology’s Electromagnetic
Compatibility Division and Deputy Chief of its Policy
and Rules Division. In addition, he has been a Senior
Technical Advisor in the Wireless Bureau’s Public
Safety and Private Wireless Division, where he managed
the implementation of the Commission’s Universal
