Philadelphia Requests 18-Month Narrowbanding Waiver (9/25/12)
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 | Comments

The city of Philadelphia requested a waiver of the FCC’s Jan. 1, 2013, VHF and UHF narrowbanding deadline for 18 months, until July 1, 2014.

The city said “certain unique operational needs and situations have impacted the city’s ability to meet the compliance date.” Specifically, the city said its 800 MHz rebanding efforts have made it impossible to comply with the narrowbanding deadline while also providing uninterrupted effective communications for the city’s public-safety systems.

The city is also upgrading to a new Project 25 (P25) network. “Although the city has reserved adequate funding for the narrowband work, the city lacks the personnel resources to properly and proactively manage three major projects concurrently.”
