FCC to Address 4.9 GHz Band, 9-1-1 Location At March 22 Meeting
Thursday, March 01, 2018 | Comments

The FCC will finally address the 4.9 GHz band at is March 22 open meeting. Beginning in 2012, the commission asked for comments on the public-safety band to encourage greater use.

In 2013, the National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) made recommendations on the 4.9 GHz band to the FCC, and the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APOC) International submitted a 2015 report to the FCC.

At the March meeting, the FCC will consider a sixth further notice of proposed rulemaking to stimulate use of and investment in the 4.9 GHz band.

In addition, the commission will consider a notice of inquiry examining location-based routing of wireless 9-1-1 calls to ensure that calls are routed to the proper 9-1-1 call center. The FCC also released a public notice, opening PS Docket No. 18-64, titled “Location-Based Routing for Wireless 9-1-1 Calls.”

The notice outlines ex parte rules. Persons making ex parte presentations must file a copy of any written presentation or a memorandum summarizing any oral presentation within two business days after the presentation.

The March 22 meeting will also include a wireless infrastructure streamlining order, a reassigned numbers database, streamlining TV satellite station reauthorization and consumer signal boosters.
