To make the use of bands more flexible, the agency has adopted new rules for certain millimeter wave spectrum bands. These include adopting an operability requirement for the entire 24 GHz band, a sharing framework to allow the use of part of the 24 GHz band for terrestrial mobile operations and Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) earth stations, a band plan for the lower 37 GHz band, and spectrum aggregation rules applicable to certain bands.
