Protections for 6 GHz Incumbents

On April 22, AT&T, Verizon, and Comsearch filed a joint proposal for authorized unlicensed use in this band while “requiring rigorous technical analyses and adopting robust protections for licensed incumbent operations.” That proposal now has been endorsed by the Fixed Wireless Communications Coalition, one of the more adamant opponents of unlicensed use. Others continue to caution the FCC about potential interference, but it seems highly likely that the FCC will proceed with its proposal. The issue now is precisely what protection incumbents will receive and what happens if, or when, a critical path experiences interference from an unlicensed device.  (ET 18-295/FCC 18-147)
