The new OTARD rule, which was recently affirmed by the DC Circuit Federal Appellate Court, represents an important technological and marketplace change, two decades in the making. In short, it will facilitate the placement of broadband-only hubs and relay antennas – pizza box-sized technology – on homes, multi-tenant buildings and vertical structures, providing a potent tool for WISPs and other small innovators to grow broadband deployment beyond past limits imposed by the former rule. Learn what the OTARD is and what it can do for your business, with WISPA outside counsel, Kevin Cookler, explaining the ins-and-outs of the new rule.

Follow the Big Muddy down to NOLA and get the low-down on the evolutionary WISPA industry! From March 14th – 17th, WISPA hosts WISPAMERICA 2022, bringing together over 1,500 WISPs and vendors in the wonderful Crescent City to sup on beignets, sip chicory coffee, and of course celebrate the best that the WISP industry has to offer America and the world.
Better than a Fat Tuesday (and certainly more memorable), we added another day to the event, too – WISPA’s Broadband Billions Bootcamp – featuring a Krewe of practitioners, state and local officials and other industry experts to help WISPs get at more than just Mardi Gras beads and coins from Congress’ newly passed, $65 billion broadband deployment legislation.
You’re guaranteed to pass a good time at WISPAMERICA because we’ve got the goods:
- More than 50 panels jammed with over 100 WISP professionals, providing invaluable updates on new technological trends, operational tips and practices, human resources, and the regulatory landscape, among others.
- Over 100 exhibitors, parading their newest hardware, software and services.
- 1000-plus WISP attendees.
- Dozens of collocated events.
- And the alluring Cajun culture of NOLA and its exotic, intoxicating French Quarter.
