Letter to FCC on Use of Spectrum Bands Above 24 GHz For Mobile Radio Services

Docket Number
GN Docket No. 14-177, IB Docket Nos. 15-256 and 97-95, RM-11664, and WT Docket No. 10-112
Thursday, July 14, 2016

NTIA submits the enclosed information for purposes of supplementing the record in the above-referenced proceeding. The rules and polices the FCC intends to adopt in this proceeding will unlock access to higher frequency bands (i.e ., the "spectrum frontier" bands) for fixed and mobile services by establishing a flexible regulatory framework for several bands in the millimeter wave range in order to facilitate the development and deployment of, for example, so-called "5G" services and applications.  The enclosed technical information: (1) summarizes current and projected federal agency operations in and adjacent to the specific bands identified in the Spectrum Frontiers NP Rlvf and supports the proposed technical rules aimed at protecting them; (2) supplements technical analysis and data NTIA previously submitted to the Commission in other proceedings involving some of these bands; (3) supports a flexible and i1movative sharing framework in the 37-38.6 GHz band; and (4) addresses issues related to the protection of the passive services in the 64-71 GHz band.
