Bird Technologies Petitions FCC on Signal Booster Classifications (2/2/15)
Monday, February 02, 2015 | Comments

The FCC invited comments on a petition for waiver filed by Bird Technologies seeking waiver of Section 90.219(e)(5) of the commission’s rules. Comments are due Feb. 13, and reply comments are due Feb. 23.

The Commission’s Part 90 rules distinguish between Class A (narrowband) and Class B (wideband) signal boosters. Section 90.219(e)(5) requires that a Part 90 signal booster must be labeled to indicate whether it is a Class A or Class B device and include an advisory stating that the user must be an FCC licensee or have the express consent of a licensee to operate the device and that the user must register Class B signal boosters.

Bird developed a signal booster that a user can configure to operate as either a Class A or Class B device and seeks a waiver of Section 90.219(e)(5) so that it can receive an equipment authorization designation under both classes, as well as market and label the device accordingly.

The public notice is here.
