From Drones to Smart Grid Technology: How to Ensure FCC Compliance in the Telecom Industry


In an era where technological innovation is accelerating, the telecommunications industry faces a myriad of regulatory challenges, particularly in compliance with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The rise of smart grid technology and the increasing use of drones for utility monitoring are just a few examples of how the industry is evolving, making FCC compliance more complex. Just last year, the FCC proposed new rules, including a licensing process for drone operators to communicate with air traffic control. So as companies strive to modernize their operations and leverage new technologies, understanding the FCC’s regulations becomes crucial.

But what are the key considerations for businesses to ensure FCC compliance, especially in this rapidly changing landscape? How can they navigate the intricacies of spectrum management, equipment authorization, and environmental reviews?

Marketing Specialist and MarketScale Host Gabrielle Bejarano sits down with Madeleine M. Lottenbach, Partner at Wiley Law, on the sidelines of ChargeExpo. As the official media partner of the event, MarketScale had the privilege of engaging in an enlightening conversation with Lottenbach.

  •  The role of Wiley Law as a one-stop shop for clients dealing with FCC-related issues.
  • The challenges and trends in compliance for metering and smart grid space.
  • The importance of staying updated with regulations concerning drone usage and licensing.

Madeleine M. Lottenbach brings a wealth of experience in counseling clients in the tech and telecom sectors on domestic and international communications matters. Her expertise includes spectrum policy, service licensing, equipment authorization, and more, making her insights invaluable for businesses looking to navigate the complexities of FCC compliance.
