What is network infrastructure under License Exception ENC 740.17(b)(2)(i)(A)?

 

A ‘network infrastructure’ commodity or software is . . .

 

Any “end item,” commodity or “software” for providing one or more of the following types of communications:”

  1. Wide Area Network (WAN);

  2. Metropolitan Area Network (MAN);

  3. Virtual Private Network (VPN);

  4. Satellite;

  5. Digital packet telephony/media (voice, video, data) over Internet protocol;

  6. Cellular; or

  7. Trunked.

    Note 1 to paragraph 2: ‘Network infrastructure’ end items are typically operated by, or for, one or more of the following types of end users:

    1. Medium- or large- sized businesses or enterprises;

    2. Governments;

    3. Telecommunications service providers; or

    4. Internet service providers.

Note 2 to paragraph 2: Commodities, software, and components for the “cryptographic activation” of a ‘network infrastructure’ item are also considered ‘network infrastructure’
