DoD Right to Examine DSS in 3.1-3.55 GHz BandsThe DoD today put out a Request for Information, seeking information regarding Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) in the 3.1 – 3.55 GHz bands. The following statement may be attributed to Claude Aiken, president and CEO of WISPA:
Washington, DC, September 18, 2020 – Though we are a long way from details, we hope that the 3.1 – 3.55 bands find commercial use, and believe DSS is a way to achieve that while also protecting vital U.S. security interests. We congratulate the DoD for its inquiry and look forward to working with all stakeholders so that this spectrum eventually sees greater use.
