The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) filed a Petition for Rulemaking last week requesting the Commission designate the 800 MHz Guard Band (816-817/861-862 MHz) as “green space” to relocate Business/Industrial (B/ILT) incumbents operating on T-Band channels (470-512 MHz) and certain 900 MHz narrowband channels (896-901/935-940 MHz). The 800 MHz Guard Band is intended to be used by B/ILT users. However, the Commission is not accepting applications for operations in this band in many parts of the country because the Frequency Advisory Committees (“FACs”) charged with implementing frequency coordination procedures have not reached an agreement on the coordination process. This Petition seeks to make the band available for incumbent T-Band licensees and certain 900 MHz band licensees that may be impacted by the band realignment proposed by pdvWireless. For more information, please contact Tim Doughty (firstname.lastname@example.org; 202.434.4271) or Wes Wright (email@example.com; 202.434.4239).
