FCC adopts rules for use spectrum licensed to FirstNet

Monday 28 October 2013 | 21:25 CET | News
The Federal Communications Commission has adopted technical service rules to govern the spectrum that will be used for deployment of a nationwide public safety wireless broadband network by the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet). The rules, which include power limits and other technical parameters for operating in this spectrum band, will provide a foundation for FirstNet's operations, help avoid harmful interference to spectrum users in adjacent bands, and expedite the availability of equipment for use on the public safety network.
