FCC finalises rules for shared 3.5 GHz spectrum

Friday 29 April 2016 | 16:37 CET | News
The FCC has reaffirmed its decision to create the Citizens Broadband Radio Service in the 3.5 GHz band and took additional steps to finalise the rules. The regulator established the 3.5 GHz band as an innovation band, where spectrum can be shared by a wide variety of users. The item adopted on 28 April reaffirms the regulatory framework the FCC adopted in the band in April last year. The next steps will include certifying spectrum access system administrators, environmental sensing capability operators, and holding a future auction.
