• 5.9 GHz Band Waiver for Connected Cars
  • December 12, 2018
  • The FCC is seeking comment on a waiver request filed by the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) to allow deployment of Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything technology within the upper 20 MHz of the 5.850-5.925 GHz band, which is currently limited to Dedicated Short Range (DSCR) Intelligent Transportation System radio service operations. 5GAA’s proposal states that its C-V2X technology offers a much greater communications range, better line-of-sight performance, and greater resiliency to provide drivers with an earlier, more complete picture of the surrounding road environment. Comments and Reply Comments are due on January 11 and January 28, 2019, respectively. For more information, please contact Wes Wright ([email protected]; 202.434.4239).
