The FCC has released details on its rescheduled workshop to discuss unlicensed spectrum issues related to the broadcast incentive auction proceeding. The workshop, now scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 8 at commission headquarters in Washington, will include two panels.
One panel will address the benefits and uses of unlicensed spectrum, and will focus primarily on white space devices, including their technical characteristics, and the opportunities they present. It will also consider the trade-offs in deploying unlicensed devices in the TV bands instead of other areas of the RF spectrum, the international development of white space technologies, and policy options to promote future unlicensed innovation.
