  • The FCC Licenses and Regulates
  • Uses the Federal Register for Notification
  • FCC Issues Notice of Inquiry (NOI), Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM), Report and Order (RNO)
  • Above Actions Include Reallocation of Spectrum, Changes in Authorized Power Levels, Spectrum Sharing
  • Actions Can Impact Existing Services
  • Established Timeframes for Responses May Be Too Short for Proper Evaluation

dot spectrum issues
DOT SPECTRUM ISSUES
  • DOT’s spectrum requirements are based

on global standards and protocols

  • The trend towards spectrum sharing and

“overlays”

  • The aggregate effect of numerous UWB

devices

  • Unintended harmful interference
