Why Utilities Need Spectrum
- Utilities rely on wireless communications to support the safe, efficient, reliable and effective delivery of electric, water and gas services.
- Wireless communications systems need spectrum, and currently utilities lack adequate spectrum to support existing and new communications needs.
- An estimated 30 MHz of spectrum is needed in a frequency range below 2 GHz to meet the existing and future communications needs of utilities.
- Utilities lack alternatives for spectrum for wireless communications.
