FCC Realigns 900 MHz Band


The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) applauds today’s action by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to adopt rules that realign the 900 MHz band. In 2014, EWA, with Anterix (formerly pdvWireless) proposed these rule changes to provide broadband wireless opportunities for Business/Industrial, transportation private carriers and critical infrastructure entities. EWA President Mark Crosby said, "We appreciate the Commission's action, for it evidences their realization that business enterprises and critical infrastructure entities are a fundamental component of our country's wireless ecosystem and, like the mission critical and consumer sectors, deserve access to spectrum capable of providing broadband solutions unique to their industrial tasks."
