ESA is Closely Monitoring the FCCs Moves as it Relates to Copper Retirement & Back Up Power for Telecommunications Services

Posted By ESA Communications, Thursday, August 20, 2015
The FCC released two press releases last week. In the first the FCC has mandated that providers must notify customers of plans to retire copper networks at least three months in advance, unless they are able to guarantee that no service will be discontinued, reduced or impaired. While this has been said in the past, the FCC has now codified the criteria to evaluate and compare replacement and legacy services which now includes the interoperability with devices and services, such as alarm services.

In the second release the FCC addressed the ability of citizens to be able to communicate during emergencies by requiring providers of modern home voice services to offer the solution for 8 hours of standby backup power upon purchase.
