71-76 GHz, 81-86 GHz and 92-95 GHz Bands
May 22, 2013

On Monday, May 20, 2013 Key Bridge submitted our proposal to the FCC to develop and manage an independent database of site/link registrations by FCC licensees in the 71 – 76 GHz, 81 – 86 GHz and 92 – 95 GHz bands.

As background: in 2003 the Commission established rules to promote development and use of the “millimeter wave” spectrum in the 71-76 GHz, 81-86 GHz and 92-95 GHz bands on a shared basis with Federal Government operations, and in 2010 the Commission finalized rules allowing shared spectrum access in the Television bands. The Commission expressly contemplated authorizing additional spectrum managers in its original grant of authority approving the current managers, there is established precedent to support designating an additional database administrator, and we strongly believe the public interest will be served by the approval of Key Bridge as a new spectrum manager.

Key Bridge recently concluded the public trial of our TV-bands White Space database. The Key Bridge White Space System was purposefully developed to accommodate different frequency bands and co-existence strategies, and we are very excited to bring our suite of new technologies, innovations and advanced services to users of the 70-80-90 GHz bands.
