FCC Seeks Comment on Dynamic Spectrum Access Techniques

November 30, 2010

Back to News Listing

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) that seeks feedback on how “dynamic access” radio and techniques can provide more intensive and efficient use of spectrum, and to examine the potential that these technologies have for enabling more effective management of spectrum. The FCC stated that the term “dynamic access radio” generally means a radio and network that can react and self-adjust to local changes in spectrum use or environmental conditions to obtain access to spectrum without causing harmful interference.

The FCC has sought comment on how to advance these dynamic access technologies, whether by creating test-beds or modifying spectrum management practices and policies for future uses of both licensed and unlicensed devices and services. The FCC requests information on dynamic technologies and on what additional steps the FCC can take to encourage, promote, and incentivize their development and use in both licensed and unlicensed spectrum.

Comments on the NOI are due February 28, 2011, with reply comments due March 28, 2011.
