MiMOMax Asks FCC to Use Part 90 Emission Designator for SCADA Radio
Monday, April 29, 2019 | Comments

The FCC is seeking comment on a request for waiver filed by MiMOMax Wireless concerning use of an additional emission designator for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) telemetry radios.

Part 90 rules specify emission designators A1D, A2D, F1D, or F2D for telemetry operations. MiMOMax seeks a waiver to allow deployment of MiMOMax Tornado telemetry radios that employ a Quadrature Amplitude Modulation radio module topology using emission designator W1W.

MiMOMax designs and manufactures radio equipment for infrastructure applications for radio systems. The company said that the Tornado radio already is certified for use under Parts 15, 27 and 101. To meet the expanding needs of its customer base, MiMOMax seeks certification for Part 90 private LMR (PLMR) bands.

The company noted that the rules limit licensees’ ability to use the radio system for high-speed telemetry applications for which it was designed and that use of this equipment would facilitate critical infrastructure companies’ migration to IP-enabled technologies for remote monitoring and control applications. As a result, MiMOMax requests a waiver to allow certification, licensing and use of MiMOMax Tornado telemetry radios using W1W digital emissions.

Comments are due May 29, and reply comments are due June 13. The full public notice is here.
