FCC Forum on Cellular/Public-Safety 800 MHz Sharing Set for Nov. 6
Friday, September 15, 2017 | Comments

The FCC will host a public forum on improving the co-existence of cellular and other commercial wireless licensees and public-safety licensees in the 800 MHz band. The forum will be held Nov. 6 at FCC headquarters.

In a March report and order, the FCC revised the cellular service power and related technical rules to provide more flexibility in deployment of advanced broadband services and promote spectral efficiency, while taking steps to protect public safety and other systems in the 800 MHz band from potential increased interference.

Recognizing that stakeholder-led efforts on the part of cellular licensees, public-safety entities, and public-safety equipment manufacturers are crucial to resolving lingering concerns about unacceptable interference to public-safety mobile and portable radios, the forum will foster conversation and further good-faith efforts among representatives of these stakeholders, the FCC said.

The forum will include the perspectives of all three groups and various other interested parties in exploring the existing 800 MHz interference environment, realistic anticipated changes in that environment, and practical options for addressing both existing and anticipated interference problems without hindering technological advances in the cellular service.

A detailed agenda will be released prior to the forum. The notice is here.
