White House Ensures US Remains Wireless Network Innovation Leader With Funding Grant

The Biden-Harris administration is working to provide Americans more opportunities to help ensure the United States remains the global leader in the development of open and interoperable wireless networks.

Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo said the country needs to have the capability to develop next-generation wireless technologies, ensuring the U.S. can create a more secure, resilient supply chain capable of protecting the nation.

On Tuesday, several companies were announced as part of the second group of recipients of grants from the Public Wireless Supply Chain Innovation Fund, the Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration said.

Projects selected for the second funding round are focused on ensuring security and energy efficiency testing and using artificial intelligence to improve open and interoperable networks.

In August, the fund named projects at Northeastern University, New York University and DeepSig as its first recipients.

The Biden-Harris administration has been working to improve the U.S. semiconductor industry. In August 2022, President Joe Biden signed the CHIPS and Science Act, which includes a provision allocating a $1.5 billion fund to invest in expanding wireless technology development.
