Frequency coordination and an FCC Radio Authorization are required for most hand-held units, platforms, marine, microwave, Multiple Address Systems and aviation units. This three-hour session will detail the frequency application and coordination process, explain how to navigate coordination resources (FCC s ULS, SpectrumWatch), and discuss how to avoid common pitfalls, including FCC violations and expensive fines. Join our spectrum management experts and gain essential coordination insight and valuable information to help you and your organization achieve FCC licensing requirements. 24 UTC TELECOM 2015 May 5-8, 2015

22 Marie Hawkins - Manager, Frequency Coordination Services UTC Spectrum Services Joann Howell - Frequency Coordination Manager UTC Spectrum Services Mona Lee - Owner Mona Lee & Associates, LLC Jeremy Boyce - Systems Engineer Micronet Communications, Inc. Battery Backup Workshop Sponsored by Wilton (H) This workshop will introduce you to a critical aspect of telecommunications reliability & resiliency: battery backup. The workshop is split in three parts: Part 1 will introduce you to the physics of batteries and the reasons why they fail. Part 2 will introduce you to battery backup from the perspective of a field operations technician and manager: how to calculate battery backup in terms of outage, how to perform preventive maintenance to help increase battery lifetime, which tests to perform to detect failing batteries, the different tests and their pros and cons and new NERC s regulation (PRC ) and their impact on field operations workload. Part 3 will introduce you to battery backup from the perspective of planning and engineering: how to plan for enough battery backup, which records should you have to comply with NERC s guidelines, how to update records at a regular interval to estimate if battery backup is still sufficient, which data should you use to update records and more. The objective of the workshop is to make sure you always have enough battery backup. Dakx Turcotte - Director of Sales & Marketing Multitel Inc. Rural Broadband Workshop Sponsored by Ansley (H) Eric Freesmeier - President & CEO Pulse Broadband, Inc Bailey White - Senior Partner Civitium Joanne Hovis - President CTC Technology & Energy Wireless Workshop: A Survey of Wireless Technologies for Utility Communications Grand Ballroom III (H) Wireless communications Managers deploying advanced networks to support the critical communications needs of utilities are faced with several decisions. Cellular, satellite, unlicensed broadband and mesh, TV white-spaces, licensed narrowband and broadband... P25, DMR, TETRA, WiMAX, LTE... This workshop will gather alumni from the :School of Hard Knocks to explore the benefits, capabilities, and characteristics offered by various technology options. Attendees should come armed with questions and what-if senarios so that they can emerge from this workshop armed with information needed to design standards-based, future-proof, cost-effective, and flexible networks built to handle a broad range of needs.

23 Tuesday, May 5 continued IP Transition Clinic: Solving the TDM/Copper Replacement Conundrum for Last Mile Connectivity Habersham (H) Flying like confetti is how one utility described carrier termination notices for the leased Frame Relay and Digital Signal (DSx) services that utilities have relied on for decades to support substation SCADA, protective relaying, and voice communications. This transition is imminent and holds the potential to create an extremely disruptive situation that could threaten the reliability and security of utility operations. Join us for this intensive workshop as we examine the best available alternatives, weighing the pros and cons of each. Harper Anderton - President/COO FAE Telecom, Inc. Suzanne Hoffman - SCS Telecom Engineering Southern Company Mark Madden - VP - North American Utilities Alcatel-Lucent Emmanuel Duvelson - Communications Product Marketing Director RFL Electronics, Inc. Maynard P. Schnell - ITT Telecom Manager Nebraska Public Power District Gabriel Nave - Director, Business Development CalAmp UtiliSite Workshop: Joint Use and Wireless Collocation - What is It and Why Should Your Utility Care? Sponsored by Grand Ballroom I (H) The wireless collocation portion of the workshop will take a look at the collocation business and how it may fit into a utility s strategic goals by creating a revenue stream from assets and infrastructure that extend above ground level including communication towers, water tanks and transmission structures. It will also discuss the use of property that may be conducive for constructing build-to-suit monopoles to meet the needs of the wireless industry. The joint use portion of the workshop will provide an overview of the regulatory, technical and business aspects of distribution pole attachments. Moderators: Karen Flewharty - Joint Use Manager Oncor Electric Delivery Company Carl Nichols - Project Manager Duke Energy Corporation Alex Daly - Associate Director Site Development Network Building & Consulting, LLC Dan Turnpaugh - President and Chief Consultant CI Telecom Group LLC Chad Hines - Project Manager Paul J. Ford and Company Eric Langley - Partner- Litigation & Energy Balch & Bingham CyberSecurity Workshop: Architecting Utility IT/OT Networks Securely: Challenges and Solutions Sponsored by Grand Ballroom II (H) IT-based technologies are being increasingly used in the OT world. Smart devices proliferate beyond smart meters and other components associated with smart networking. The workforce and the customers expect convenience of using a mobile device to do everything access their power usage, adjust the thermostat, maintain SCADA systems from home, the list goes on and on. The workshop will explore the challenges of using IT technologies in the OT environment in a secure manner, including risks and solutions present in this space, and engage the audience in a robust discussion about their experiences. The topics will span the entire technology stack, from designing secure high speed networks and resilient distribution systems to specific technologies for switches, firewalls, and other devices. The audience will 26 UTC TELECOM 2015 May 5-8, 2015

Current and past board chairman, staff members and seasoned UTC veterans will be on hand to answer questions in a fun and social setting. 14:00-17:15 Pre-Conference Summits Wireless Summit: Utility Access to Vital Spectrum Resources Grand Ballroom III (H) A foundational element of utility modernization is a pervasive communications infrastructure. For many utilities, supporting technologies including higher speed SCADA, distribution automation, load control, and AMI, will require a wireless strategy. Facing competition for scarce spectrum resources, utilities must consider all available options. This summit will examine spectrum options meet narrowband, wideband, and broadband needs. From exclusive use channels to unlicensed bands with no interference protection, this session will highlight available frequency bands and the requirements imposed upon them. The summit will address how to locate available spectrum and obtain licenses through the FCC s, spectrum auctions, third party assignments, or spectrum leases. Specific attention will be paid to the frequency bands in which utilities are successfully securing spectrum for applications and those bands that have proved problematic: 217/219 MHz AMTS band, MHz, MHz, Part 22 VHF/UHF Paging, 3.65 GHz band, and potential access to the 4.9 GHz band. Special attention will be paid to the 700 MHz FirstNet public safety broadband network and the controversial 900 MHz band realignment proposal. Unlicensed bands will also be examined as will the emergence of bands being reviewed for the use of new technologies intended to provide more dynamic and intensive use of the spectrum. Attendees will be invited to join in the debate and gain crucial insights to help them assess the best spectrum approaches for their important wireless projects.
