CTIA - Protecting America’s Next-Generation Networks
Executive Summary
The wireless industry has baked security into our networks since the beginning, and works diligently to continually update and build on our security capabilities with every generation of wireless. Today’s 4G LTE networks have the most advanced security features to date, and 5G will further improve upon them.

As 5G networks start to be deployed this year, wireless providers are leveraging new and advanced measures—after years of research, investment, and contributions to standards bodies—to secure 5G networks. This paper updates CTIA’s 2017 Protecting America’s Wireless Networks paper to feature 5G security highlights, including

FCC proceeds with mmWave 5G plans | PolicyTracker: the spectrum management newsletter
"US mobile industry association the CTIA wanted the planned auctions of the 37.6–40 GHz bands and the 47 GHz band (47.2–48.2 GHz) to be brought forward to November 2018 so that they could be held alongside a planned auction of the 24 GHz band (24.25–24.45 GHz + 24.75–25.25 GHz)."

Foundational standards set for Citizens Broadband Radio Service | PolicyTracker: Feb 2018
"The Wireless Innovation Forum has finalized the specifications for use of the 3.5 GHz band by commercial applications as part of the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS)."

"The standardization work is based on the FCC’s Part 96 rules. The Wireless Innovation Forum (WinnForum) has contracted mobile trade association the CTIA to certify CBRS devices (CBSDs)."

5GAA, NGMN argue for cellular, not DSRC, in NHTSA proposal | FierceWireless
Out with the old, in with the new, according to several cellular industry groups commenting on the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) plan to use dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) to improve road safety.

The deadline was April 13 for the public to comment on the NHTSA’s plan, which proposes requiring vehicle-to-vehicle devices to “speak the same language” through standardized messaging and would require automakers to include V2V technologies in all new light-duty vehicles. Designating a single language would solve the problem of dueling protocols, but opponents argue that DSRC is already outdated and shouldn’t be mandated. In fact, many commenters don’t want to see any specific technology mandated at all.

Amazon tells FCC to reject T-Mobile, CTIA, CCA efforts to get more licensed high-band spectrum | FierceWireless Apr 2017
"Dismissing claims by CTIA, T-Mobile and the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA), Amazon is voicing support for the FCC’s decision on unlicensed operations in the 64-71 GHz band.
Amazon executives recently met with FCC advisers to commissioners Michael O’Rielly and Mignon Clyburn to discuss aspects of the commission’s Spectrum Frontiers proceeding on spectrum above 24 GHz. Amazon says the availability of unlicensed spectrum is of great interest to Amazon and its 180,000 U.S. employees."

"CCA has told the commission that the decision to allocate the entire 64-71 GHz band for unlicensed use will negatively impact the future of mobile terrestrial 5G services. "

CTIA, CCA blast FCC for slipping cybersecurity rule into 5G order | FierceWireless - Dec 2016
"Both CTIA and the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA), which don’t always see eye-to-eye on wireless regulatory issues, agree on one thing: The FCC’s proposal to require millimeter wave (mmWave) licensees to disclose network security plans is a bad idea.

Actually, both organization say it violates the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) because the FCC did not propose the rule in its original Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), where entities like CTIA and CCA could have voiced their objections. Instead, they say the commission barely mentioned a security obligation in a “fact sheet” that was published less than a month before the order was adopted."

CCA, CTIA urge FCC to deny Boeing’s request for satellite system | FierceWireless
"Both CTIA and the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) are coming out against Boeing’s proposal to operate a non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) system in the 37.5-42, 47.2-50.2 and 50.4-51.4 GHz bands, saying it threatens spectrum for terrestrial 5G operators."

800 MHz interference notification site
"This website is a vehicle for complaints of radio interference in the 800 MHz spectrum band. Public safety, critical infrastructure industries, and B/ILT 800 MHz licensees can use this site to submit a report to local wireless carriers about a particular interference incident. Carriers operating within 5000 feet of the reported interference will investigate, and those responsible for any harmful interference will take action to resolve it."

CTIA gets it wrong again… - TMF Associates MSS blog
"Not content with disinterring the FCC’s infamous October 2010 working paper that most thought had been completely discredited five years ago, last month CTIA went on to commission Brattle Group to produce a new “updated” version of the FCC’s forecasts. Ironically enough this new report confirms that the FCC was totally wrong in 2010, because the total amount of spectrum in use at the end of 2014 was only 348MHz, not the 822MHz that the FCC projected. Despite this clear demonstration of how ludicrous the original projections were, Brattle reuses the same flawed methodology, which ignores factors such as that new deployment is of cells for capacity not for coverage, and so the ability to support traffic growth is in no way proportional to the total number of cellsites in the US."

NAB and Spectrum | CTIA- Aug 2013
Quote: In an incredible example of misplaced focus, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) recently asked the FCC to collect more data on spectrum usage to “determine whether the spectrum crisis is, in fact, real.” It is disappointing to see that NAB continues to question the findings of numerous government and industry experts, and indeed the consensus of the countries that we compete with abroad: Four years after CTIA first identified the spectrum crunch Three years after the National Broadband Plan and Obama Administration called for 500 MHz of new mobile broadband spectrum Two years after the Commission established a proceeding on the reallocation of television spectrum for wireless and More than a year after the Spectrum Act’s passage.

Wireless Industry Lobbying Mutes Alternative Views = Jun 2013
"The wireless industry invests roughly $30 billions of dollars annually in capital expenditures building out their networks and acquiring spectrum. The major carriers average $5 billion to $10 billion in capital expenditures each. Given that the industry is heavily regulated, it would be irresponsible for them to not protect their investment with appropriate political lobbying efforts. It has been reported that the Big-4 and the CTIA spent over $53 million in lobbying efforts in 2012 ( and occupy three spots of the list of the 30 largest spenders on lobbying. This is disproportionate to the industry’s size in the economy, but perhaps appropriate due to the regulatory intensiveness of the industry. Their lobbying budget allows the wireless industry to maintain constant vigilance on pending legislation and FCC policy changes."
