FCC Grants Short Extension of Time on Submission of 5.9 GHz and DSRC Devices for Testing

In the 5.9 GHz Public Notice to which NPSTC responded with Comments, the FCC also had asked companies to submit by July 30 any prototype unlicensed interference-avoiding devices and any prototype DSRC devices, both of which could be used in FCC testing of spectrum sharing in the 5.9 GHz band.  Today’s August 1 Daily Digest shows that on July 9, the FCC has granted short extensions to both Cisco and Qualcomm for equipment submissions.  Cisco now has until August 18.  Qualcomm now has until August 8.   Interestingly, Qualcomm will submit both unlicensed WiFi and DSRC devices.

THE OFFICE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY IS GRANTING THE REQUEST OF CISCO SYSTEMS, INC. FOR A SHORT EXTENSION OF THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT PROTOYPE DEVICES OPERATING.   Cisco continues to develop and evolve its proposal to attempt to find the optimum way in which IEEE 802.11ac radios could share with Dedicated Short Range Communication radios without causing harmful interference to DSRC.
