PCIA and The DAS Forum file comments on 3.5 GHz proceeding
PCIA and The DAS Forum filed comments in the FCC’s Amendment of the Commission’s Rules with Regard to Commercial Operations in the 3550-3650 MHz Band (GN Docket No. 12-354). Among other things, PCIA and The DAS Forum said that if the FCC adopts a Citizen’s Broadband Service with a priority access tier, commercial wireless service providers should be allowed to have access to that tier and that the CBS’s frequency coordination, database management, and interference mitigation functions should be administered by the private sector. The association also commented that the FCC should not limit use of the 3.5 GHz band to indoor deployments and the commission should work to ease the hurdles to DAS and small cell deployment in both indoor and outdoor settings.
