- Consumer Electronics Association, Telecommunications Industry Association – both asked for 2 week extension since such a broad new change proposed
- up to now, two types of devices:
- Non SDR (<== Wi-Fi routers)
Proposed rule gets rid of the distinction and says that everything has to fall under U-NII regulatory and security guidelines. Stricter security rules came into play in 2015. Even now, Wi-Fi router industry is struggling to figure out how to comply with the new FCC security requirements: https://apps.fcc.gov/kdb/GetAttachment.html?id=1UiSJRK869RsyQddPi5hpw==&desc=594280%20D02%20U-NII%20Device%20Security%20v01r02&tracking_number=39498
We need a general response that tells the FCC not to lock down platforms to innovation and value-add software services. Maybe prpl could submit a response that is endorsed by its members and OEMs/ODMs of those members — anyone who cares would be welcome to sign, almost like a petition. However, that same response has to show how industry and community have a plan to make sure that Wi-Fi regulations are kept secure, and cannot be skirted around.
