LMCC Asks FCC to Resolve Issues with Universal Licensing Service
Tuesday, December 21, 2021 | Comments

The Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC) sent a letter to the FCC expressing concerns about errors and lack of communication involving the commission’s Universal Licensing System (ULS).

The LMCC noted that in 2016 that upon FCC request it provided input on ways to improve the system.

“We were grateful that the Commission implemented many of the LMCC’s suggestions,” the letter said. “However, the necessary level of communication and engagement has not been sustained, which is crucial given that it is not known when and if the ULS Version 2.0 will be implemented.”

The letter said that there have been a high level of 502 and 504 and users experience slow or non-existent service.

“This directly affects the interests of the FACs, all of whom are LMCC members and who represent one of the largest blocks of licensees in the ULS,” the letter said. “It is an essential tool necessary to conduct spectrum analysis and to assist applicants to secure FCC licenses in compliance with FCC rules. Also, problematic is the lack of FCC information regarding ULS outages and downtime.”

The LMCC requested that the commission inform the LMCC when issues with the ULS occur.

“This will alleviate the burden on the commission’s call center and enable licensees and FACs to alter processes during these disruptive situations,” the letter said. “We urgently request action on this issue and ask that the commission commit to enhance its lines of communication with the LMCC. The LMCC is willing to designate a single point-of- contact to receive and disperse information about important ULS developments and improvements. Further, it would be helpful to receive a status update on the implementation of ULS Version 2.0.”
