EWA to Close Filing Window for 800 MHz EB/GB Applications May 2
Monday, April 29, 2019 | Comments

The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) will close its filing window for applications seeking 800 MHz expansion band/guard band (EB/GB) spectrum May 2. Applications received after that date will be processed in order of receipt.

The EWA announcement follows the FCC’s release of a public notice announcing May 9 as the date on which frequency coordinators may begin pre-coordination activities and July 18 as when the FCC will begin accepting non-mutually exclusive applications from the frequency advisory committees (FACs). Applicants can submit applications using Cevo, EWA’s online application portal or seek EWA’s assistance in application preparation.

EWA will organize its internal application queue May 3. Staff will review each application to identify any instances of mutual exclusivity, and applicants will be appraised of their application queue status. EWA cannot guarantee that channels pre-selected by EWA will be available for licensing by the FCC until final review for mutual exclusivity issues are resolved with other FACs.

FAC efforts to adopt an agreement that will eliminate the possibility of mutually exclusive applications are still pending.

“The work that we’re trying to get done toward mutually exclusive applications hasn’t stopped,” Crosby said.

EWA also is anticipating an FCC public notice on its petition that asked the FCC to designate the Part 90 800 MHz guard band spectrum as “green space” for the relocation of business/industrial/land transportation (B/ILT) incumbents operating on T-band channels and certain 900 MHz narrowband channels.
