NTIA Requires Federal Spectrum Use Review
Friday, August 02, 2019 | Comments

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) is requiring those affected federal agencies to review spectrum assignments in the 3.1 – 3.55 and 7.125 – 8.4 GHz bands initially during the next six to nine months. After the agencies begin to review these bands, NTIA will then solicit input from the agencies and other stakeholders on the next set of bands to be reviewed on a recurring and rolling basis.

The data collection efforts consist of four components. First, applicable agencies will review frequency assignment data for the two initial bands (and any additional bands) and provide supplementary data fields to quantify their spectrum use. Second, NTIA will use this information to update or develop spectrum use contours for these initial and any additional bands. Third, agencies will continue, concurrently, to review their frequency assignments according to NTIA rules to further enhancements and changes. Fourth, agencies and other stakeholders will explore additional methods, such as monitoring and scheduling, to better quantify spectrum use.

Agencies are required to review frequency assignments in the initial bands, quantify spectrum use and conduct continuing regular reviews as scheduled. They should also explore other means to quantify spectrum use.
