EBS “White Space” Licensing Proposal

Submitted to FCC


A consensus plan for licensing currently-vacant EBS spectrum around the country has now been formally submitted to the FCC.  The plan was developed by the National EBS Association (NEBSA), the Catholic Technology Network (CTN, formerly the Catholic Television Network), the Wireless Communications Association International (WCAI), and the Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network (HITN), in consultation with the EBS and wireless operator communities, as well as FCC staff.


If adopted by the FCC, the plan has the potential to increase the size of many existing EBS station Geographic Service Areas (GSAs), and it also offers the chance for qualified educational entities to file for new EBS station licenses.  This would be the first opportunity since 1995 to file for new stations

FCC Decision on Out of Band Emissions (OOBE)

On June 6, the FCC adopted its Fifth Report and Order in the docket relating to the establishment of new rules governing the 2.5 GHz band, to facilitate the provision of wireless services over EBS and its commercial counterpart, BRS.  The decision in this case was to make a minor change in the technical rules establishing limits on the out-of-band emissions (“OOBE”) for mobile devices operating in the 2.5 GHz band.  The change would relax these limits somewhat, to accommodate the use of wider channel bandwidths in network systems operating in the band.  Wider channel bandwidths are desirable because they permit greater throughput over the spectrum, and therefore are more efficient.   The rule making had been initiated at the request of the Wireless Communications Association International (WCAI).  NEBSA and CTN supported the rule changes before the FCC.

FCC Decision on “Spectrum Screen”

On May 15, 2014, the FCC adopted a Report and Order in its rule making proceeding on how much mobile spectrum any given provider (such as AT&T, Verizon and Sprint) can hold.  The purpose of the FCC’s rules in this area is to facilitate a competitive environment in the mobile services industry, by ensuring that no provider has a “lock” on too much spectrum.
