FCC Receives Additional 3.5 GHz Band Applications

May 31, 2017–The FCC has received additional applications to serve as 3.5 gigahertz band spectrum access system (SAS) administrators and environmental sensing capability (ESC) operators. Today was the deadline for a “second wave” of proposals (TR Daily, April 7).

Last December, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and Office of Engineering and Technology conditionally approved seven SAS proposals from the first wave of applications (TR Daily, Dec. 21, 2016). Additional applications to be both SAS administrators and ESC operators have been submitted in GN docket 15-319 by Rivada Networks LLC and Nokia, while Fairspectrum LLC and RED Technologies have submitted SAS administrator proposals.
