NTIA Seeks Industry Input on Potential RF Spectrum Management Upgrade

The Telecommunications and Information Administration is eyeing upgrades to its radio frequency spectrum management infrastructure.

One of NTIA’s main responsibilities is to oversee federal spectrum use and identify bandwidth for the private sector.

In a request for information posted Tuesday on SAM .gov, the agency said it wants to enhance spectrum system security, improve spectrum data access, develop analytics and automate processes.

NTIA explained that its current information technology systems are outdated and inadequate to promptly execute its spectrum functions. The agency added that its ability to handle advanced technologies such as 5G and advance spectrum-dependent missions is limited.

The agency said in the RFI that it could issue a request for proposals for a secure federal spectrum data system with automation capabilities. Industry is invited to share solutions and approaches to inform such a request, FedScoop reported Wednesday.

In March, NTIA issued a request for comments on a plan to reallocate approximately 1,500 megahertz of spectrum for the public and private sectors. The agency said industry input would support a national spectrum strategy to be developed by the end of 2023.
