BRS/EBS Emission Limits Relaxed


The Federal Communications Commission has relaxed the out-of-band emissions (OOBE) limits for Broadband Radio Service (BRS) and Educational Broadband Service (EBS) digital mobile stations operating in the 2496-2690 MHz band.  The Commission states that these changes will enable operators to use BRS and EBS spectrum more efficiently and improve service for consumers.  Further, these changes will also promote greater consistency between the Commission’s BRS/EBS technical rules and global standards for broadband mobile devices in the 2.5 GHz band, potentially making equipment more affordable and furthering the proliferation of broadband mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, that operate in the 2.5 GHz band.  The Commission also stated that the relaxed OOBE limits for broadband mobile equipment operating in the 2.5 GHz band will not materially increase the potential for harmful interference within the 2.5 GHz band, given that the new limits are in line with the Third Generation Partnership Project’s (3GPP) standards.
