FCC Proposes to Open Spectrum Horizons for New Services & Technologies
The Federal Communications Commission initiated a proceeding to expand access to spectrum above 95 GHz. This spectrum has long been considered the outermost horizon of the usable spectrum range. Currently, the Commission has no rules to permit licensed or unlicensed communications use above 95 GHz, other than by amateur operators or on an experimental basis. New developments in radio technology hold the promise for productive use of these frequency bands. To enable innovators and entrepreneurs to most readily access this spectrum, the Spectrum Horizons NPRM identifies specific frequency bands that could accommodate licensed, unlicensed and experimental use. By supporting multiple types of authorizations, the Commission will be better able to accommodate the diverse types of services and applications that may be developed for these bands.
