FCC Allows Anchorage to Operate 700 MHz Wideband Data System (8/27/14)
Wednesday, August 27, 2014 | Comments

The FCC granted a waiver request to the municipality of Anchorage, Alaska, seeking authority to operate a new IP-based private land mobile data system on general use channels in the portion of the 700 MHz band designated for public-safety narrowband use.

The commission also granted a waiver to CalAmp, allowing the supplier to add a wideband emission designator to the equipment certification for one model of its 700 MHz base stations for operation in Anchorage’s IP-based mobile data system.

Anchorage requested a waiver of Section 90.531(d)(1) of the commission’s rules so that it can operate its mobile data system on a wideband basis using 50-kilohertz bandwidth channels.

Anchorage currently operates a 14-year-old mobile data system on 25-kilohertz bandwidth channels in the 800 MHz band, which serves more than 350 of its police patrol units. Anchorage hopes to build and implement a new 700 MHz wideband IP-based private land mobile data system that can be integrated into the Anchorage Wide Area Radio Network (AWARN), a 700 MHz narrowband digital IP-based public-safety voice radio system that is used by almost all public-safety agencies and emergency responders in the municipality. AWARN is a voice-only system, but Anchorage will add a mobile data component to the network.

The full order is here.
