Ah yes, the FCC. The Federal Communications Commission is responsible for a lot of things here in the United States. They’re primarily responsible for regulating interstate and international communications over radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. There are many bureaus within the FCC, with various offices to support those bureaus.
One office we’re big fans of is the Office of Engineering and Technology (OET). The OET is responsible for overseeing the authorization of various equipment that use electromagnetic energy and maintains this database, which the public can access. That’s where we come in and find out when cool products like the Nokia Lumia 1520 visit the FCC and get ready for market here in the United States. Which it just did.
