Beginning in 2021, service providers participating in CAF-II, A-CAM, RDOF, RBE, Alaska Plan, or New NY Broadband programs must complete network speed and latency testing to comply with the new FCC Performance Measures testing requirements.
Are you prepared to satisfy FCC testing and avoid potential penalties?
Many US service providers are tapping into regulatory funding programs such as FCC Connect America Fund (CAF-II), Alternative-Connect America Model (A-CAM), Rural Broadband Experiments (RBE), Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF), Alaska Plan, and New NY Broadband to extend broadband access across the country and close the digital divide in rural America. In exchange for receiving government funding, service providers participating CAF Phase II Model need to complete network speed and latency performance pre-testing at random locations beginning in 2021 and prepare for official testing in 2022 or risk losing monthly funding with financial penalties.
FCC funding recipients span all tiers of operators, and many are small organizations with limited resources to manage the FCC reporting requirements and schedule. Today, many customer premise equipment (CPE) devices are unmanaged, making it difficult to comply with the FCC test strategy and reporting obligations. Service providers have limited testing tools and solutions to choose from – hardware-based appliances that are intrusive to customers and require expensive truck rolls to install and maintain, or open-source software that requires in-house technical development.
