FCC holds spectrum coordination meeting with Mexico's IFT

Monday 15 February 2016 | 08:25 CET | News
The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has held a two-day meeting with its Mexican counterpart, the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT), to discuss issues of spectrum coordination. The regulators said they agreed on a roadmap to facilitate rebanding the 800 MHz band along the common border to reduce interference to US public safety licensees. They also committed to developing work plans to address coordination in several other frequency bands, including the 400 MHz, 700 MHz, 2500-2686 MHz, 3.4 -3.7 GHz, 5.9 GHz, and the PCS and AWS bands.
