FCC Certifies Full Spectrum Equipment in VHF (1/13/15)
Tuesday, January 13, 2015 | Comments

Full Spectrum received FCC approval to operate its FullMAX broadband data networks in licensed VHF frequencies between 217 MHz and 220 MHz. This supplements previous approvals from the FCC for FullMAX operation in the nationwide 700 MHz guard bands and 900 MHz narrowband PCS frequencies.

Collectively, these bands represent almost 7 megahertz of VHF/UHF spectrum now available for private wireless data networks. Full Spectrum’s FullMAX software-defined radios are capable of operating in any licensed radio frequency between 40 MHz and 958 MHz in channel sizes between 200 kilohertz and 5 megahertz with radio transmit power of up to 20 watts.

The architecture enables the repurposing of many underutilized radio frequencies for highly secure, private, machine-to-machine (M2M) use, company executives said.

FullMAX is being deployed by several U.S. utilities, including NorthWestern Energy in the Rocky Mountain region and Rappahannock Electric and Pepco Holdings in the mid-Atlantic. FullMAX networks provide more than 100,000 square miles of private broadband network coverage in North America.
