The rules require that the technical parameters which govern the operation of WCS mobile and portable devices in the 2.3 GHz band, enhance performance requirements to ensure that mobile broadband is rapidly deployed and made available to the public, while limiting the potential for harmful interference to incumbent services operating in adjacent bands. The Commission is now requesting OMB approval for a revision to this IC due to changes made in the Order on Reconsideration, FCC 12-130. Specifically, revising the technical rules to enhance the ability of WCS licensees to deploy mobile broadband networks while establishing safeguards to protect neighboring SDARS, AMT and DSN networks from interference; prohibited WCS mobile & portable devises' transmissions in WCS Blocks C and D to further protect SDARS operations; relaxed WCS licenseees notification requirements and clarified WCS notification and coordination procedures; and restarted and provided a limited extension of WCS performance periods to enable licensees to respond to revisions of technical rules.
