Recent News


On August 6, 2018, the Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) filed Reply Comments in the 4.9 GHz proceeding concerned with user eligibility and spectrum management requirements.


On August 2, Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) with co-sponsors Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Bob Casey (D-Penn.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) introduced S.3347, entitled “Don’t Break Up the T-Band Act of 2018.” The bill, like its House counterpart (H.R. 5085), would repeal section 6103 in Title VI of P.L. 112-96, a provision of the 2012 Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act, which directs the FCC to begin an auction of the T-band spectrum (470–512 MHz) by February 21, 2021, and clear public safety operations from the band within 2 years of auction close.

FCC Settles Two LED Light Violation Cases
The FCC has resolved two investigations into two cases of violation of Commission rules regarding the marketing of light-emitting diode (LED) signs used in digital billboards and other commercial and industrial applications without the required equipment authorization. Both investigations resulted in admissions to rule violations; both companies will implement compliance plans as part of their settlements; and each company will pay a civil penalty:
  • Absen Inc. will pay a $55,000.

The Fixed Wireless Communications Coalition (FWCC) continues to lobby the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), challenging the use of unlicensed devices in the 6 GHz microwave band as proposed by Apple, Google et al coalition, without further evidence that interference can be avoided. 


It is not particularly accurate to state that there has been a successful negotiation between the national carriers and their primary advocate versus those parties including EWA who suggested that just a few Priority Access Licenses (PALs) based on census tracts would promote greater spectrum access. After all, it makes no sense for smaller communication providers and business enterprises to acquire huge swaths of geography better suited for national carriers during a 3.5 GHz auction.
