Boston, Raleigh to be Designated as FCC Innovation Zones

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has proposed adding Boston and Raleigh (NC) to its list of areas for advanced wireless communications and network innovation research.

According to a press release, Acting FCC Chairperson Jessica Rosenworcel proposed the additions to help expand the agency’s efforts to help foster the development and integration of 5G network technologies and open radio access networks (RANs). If adopted by the Commission, Boston and Raleigh would join New York City and Salt Lake City under the agency’s Innovations Zones initiative, which seeks to expand the geographic areas where those holding experimental program licenses can conduct research and testing of these technologies.

The Boston Innovation Zone would be centered at Northeastern University, while the Raleigh Innovation Zone would be based on collaborations with North Carolina State University.

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.

Rosenworcel’s proposed changes to the Innovation Zones initiative would also expand the New York City Innovation Zone to include three Columbia University and City College of New York campus areas.
