pdvWireless Files Further Comments on 900 MHz NOI, Emphasizing Importance of Securing Critical Infrastructure
"We have listened to the comments on the record and studied very minutely the radio environment of 900 MHz," said
PDV asserted in 2014 and re-asserts now that spectrum in the 900 MHz band is optimally positioned to enable secure, reliable private wireless networks that meet mission-critical communications needs. The FCC has an opportunity to create a broadband service on spectrum that has been allocated for more than 30 years, much of which remains entirely unused, without compromising the operations of entities that wish to continue using narrowband technology, the company's filing states.
"The FCC is charged with addressing urgent issues of national significance, and few issues should have higher priority than arming our country's critical infrastructure sectors with private, secure broadband networks that can communicate at machine speed," said
The PDV/EWA revised proposal proactively addresses issues raised by parties who both supported and opposed the original proposal. The revised plan makes the following key changes, among others:
- provides an opportunity for critical infrastructure and other business entities to obtain 900 MHz broadband licenses – potentially years before other spectrum options become available
- relocates the proposed broadband segment within the band
- relies on traditional frequency coordination processes to create broadband licenses
