APCO Adds Microwave Engineering/Licensing Services to Part 90 Coordination
Friday, July 05, 2019 | Comments

The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International said it is adding microwave engineering and licensing services to its Part 90 frequency coordination. APCO will now offer full turnkey microwave services including engineering, licensing, project management and deployment.

The services will include design, project management and implementation of licensed point-to-point backhaul (6 – 80 GHz); unlicensed point-to-point backhaul (2.4 and 5.8 GHz); and 4.9 GHz point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, mesh, Wi-Fi hot spots and mobile network systems.

More specifically, the association will offer turnkey path design, licensing and project management of unlicensed and licensed point-to-point microwave backhaul radio systems based on customer requirements such as capacity, propagation availability and equipment reliability. APCO will also tackle engineering of point-to-multipoint, mesh, base/mobile and Wi-Fi wireless networks designed in the unlicensed frequency bands to achieve seamless area radio coverage based on customer requirements for seamless area network coverage. Networks of this nature provide radio signal coverage within in a defined area as opposed to a point-to-point path, which transports data between two specific points using a narrow beam, APCO said.

APCO engineering staff can provide customers with technical assistance and preparation of requests for information (RFI)/requests for proposals (RFP) documentation required for a planned microwave system.

APCO also offers licensing services including frequency coordination, FCC licensing, frequency protection/path status, and FAA studies and FCC tower registration.
