  • The FCC adopted the Spectrum Horizons First Report and Order on March 15 to encourage technological development and deployment of services in the spectrum above 95 GHz. This follows an NPRM adopted in February 2018 (Vol. XV, Issue 15). The Order provides opportunities for new experimental and unlicensed use in the frequencies above 95 GHz, including making 21.2 GHz available for unlicensed use. In his blog post, FCC Chairman Pai stated that this action will, “add a new experimental license type that would permit experimental use on any frequency from 95 GHz to 3 THz, with no limits on geography or technology.” In the Press Release, the Commission stated that “study of these uses could ultimately lead to further rulemaking actions and additional licensing opportunities within the Spectrum Horizons bands.” For more information, please contact Wes Wright ([email protected]; 202.434.4239).
