The National Spectrum Consortium (NSC) applauds the Senate for its passage of the CHIPS Act of 2022 and urges the House of Representatives to pass this important legislation, which includes bipartisan support for Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN). This bill will strengthen our domestic telecom supply chain and support semiconductor production facilities that are crucial to national security. The manufacturing incentives, research and development, workforce and education, defense fund, and the international technology security and innovation fund included in the bill are essential to keeping our communications networks secure and resilient.
