Presentation Transcript
set 1 fcc proposals
Set 1 – FCC proposals
  • Proposal #1 – C&D licensed in REAGs
  • Proposal #2 – C&D licensed in REAGs; E licensed in EAs
  • Note: dotted black line indicates current B Block licensees (2x2 = 4 MHz) which hold licenses covering about 15% of the country leaving a 4x4 pair or 8 MHz in these areas
  • Note: these proposals attempt to solve the international border issues through the use of a “temporary easement” instead of a “permanent shift” as in proposals 3,4 and 5. The “temporary easement” does not solve public safety’s interoperability issues

The international border issue

  • Details:
    • Public Safety must satisfy the need for fixed, permanent, nationwide interoperability channels in television channels 63, 64, 68 and 69 or there is NO interoperability in the border areas until the Canadian and Mexican television broadcasters vacate the spectrum
set 2 fcc proposals
Set 2 – FCC proposals
  • Proposal #3 – Coalition for 4G in America proposes the C be licensed in REAGs; D in MEAs
  • Proposal #4 – C&D licensed in REAGs; E licensed in EAs

fcc proposal 3 is the right choice
FCC Proposal #3 is the right choice
  • Solves public safety’s international border issue, provides funding mechanism for re-locating its existing narrowband operations
  • Provides the proper incentives for public safety and the A&B Block licenses to cooperate to enable the Commission to auction 32 MHz of commercial broadband spectrum in a uniform manner nationwide
  • Optimizes the band for public-private partnerships whether the FCC sets up a “regulated” public-private partnership or not
  • Avoids risk of litigation over allocating previously auctioned or unauctioned commercial spectrum to public safety
  • Enables the entry of a major, nationwide wireless broadband operator
    • The Coalition for 4G in America (DirecTV, Echostar, Google, Intel, Skype, Yahoo) support the creation of an 11 MHz pair along with the use of combinatorial bidding
  • Enables the entry of multiple regional/local wireless broadband operators
    • The Lower 700 MHz contains 24 MHz of unauctioned spectrum and 12 MHz of previously auctioned spectrum in EAs and CMAs which will be able to be used for wireless broadband upon the completion of the DTV transition
