FAA & FCC Licensing

Each wireless project has its own set of regulatory challenges, and we have a successful history in navigating those challenges for our clients. Whether it is simply to replace an old tower structure with a new one or implementing a new communications network that spans multiple states, we will bid on a spectrum in an FCC auction, file structures with the FAA, register antenna structures with the FCC, and monitor any changes in the federal regulations that impact your network.
