Learn Its  Effect on Existing Towers and new Towers, and Small Cells.

Gain an understanding of the many legal and technical issues under the Order, including scope, constitutionality, effect on existing towers and new towers, and small cells.
This topic covers the FCC’s 2014 Wireless Siting Order implementing 47 U.S.C. 1455(a) that preempts state and local approval for many changes to communica-tions towers and antenna sites, including the Order’s relation to/conflicts with the FCC’s September 2018 Order aiding the installation of thousands of small cell sites in rights of way. We will describe the many legal and technical issues under the Order, including what types of changes are covered; the differing rules for small cell sites, antennas on buildings, along highways, and on camouflaged sites. We will describe the Order’s application process, the 60-day shot clock, and ‘deemed granted’ remedy. This information will give you the tools to identify and discuss issues that are likely to be raised by wireless firms and municipalities as they implement the Order, and will provide practical guidance on how they can identify, address and resolve common issues related to the Order. You will come away with useful legal and technical knowledge about what is certain under the Order, what is uncertain, and practical guidance on how to proceed.
