NTIA Releases Technical Report on 3.5 GHz Band Sharing


The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has released a technical report developed by engineers in NTIA’s Office of Spectrum Management (OSM) and Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) that provides the technical analysis supporting spectrum sharing in the 3550-3650 MHz band.  In April, the Federal Communications Commission approved a new regulatory framework that would enable commercial access to 150 MHz of spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band. The report provides a description of the technical and deployment parameters of Citizens Broadband Radio Service Device access points and user equipment, technical characteristics of federal radar systems, and the analysis methodology used to compute the distances that established the revised exclusion zones that limit service where it would interfere with Department of Defense systems.
