Aerial Communications, 800 MHz Licensing on FCC’s May Agenda (5/17/12)
The FCC will address rapidly deployable aerial communications and 800 MHz licensing at its May open meeting.
At the May 24 meeting, the FCC will consider a notice of inquiry examining the role of deployable aerial communications architecture (DACA) in facilitating emergency response by rapidly restoring communications capabilities in the immediate aftermath of a catastrophic event.
The FCC held a workshop on DACA last November.
In addition, the commission will consider a report and order that will provide economic area (EA)-based 800 MHz licensees with the flexibility to better use spectrum to transition networks from legacy 2G technologies to advanced wireless technologies.
Last month, the FCC asked for public input on Sprint Nextel’s requests to exceed the applicable channel spacing and bandwidth limitation in the 817 – 824/862 – 869 MHz band. Sprint Nextel seeks to deploy CDMA in the 817 – 821/862 – 866 MHz band segment in 11 economic areas (EA) in which it holds EA-based 800 MHz specialized mobile radio (SMR) licenses.
