EWA and pdvWireless Submit 900 MHz Reply Comments

On November 1, EWA and pdvWireless jointly submitted Reply Comments in response to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Notice of Inquiry regarding the proposal to create a narrowband/broadband solution in the 900 MHz Business/Industrial Land Transportation (B/ILT) and commercial bands dedicated to B/ILT entities. The filing was substantive and reiterated the fundamental premise of the benefits attributable to a spectrum realignment, provided sound engineering solutions in response to co- and adjacent-channel interference concerns, and responded to those who would prefer that the band remain untouched for the foreseeable future, thereby foregoing technology innovations that would benefit EWA’s greater membership for years to come.

The FCC had earlier denied a joint request to delay the reply comment deadline noting that “parties may inform the Commission of any agreement or consensus reached after the reply comment deadline in ex parte filings.” (FCC 17-200)
