FCC to Build +95-GHz Sandbox
The FCC will start work on releasing a whopping 21 GHz of spectrum above 95 GHz at proceedings in March. In addition, it aims to open up bands from 95 GHz to 3 THz for experiments, and it will propose broadband uses at the other end of the spectrum in the unlicensed 900-MHz band. … “I have a hunch that major new federal R&D funding will soon follow these efforts, and we will be there to take advantage of the support,” said Ted Rappaport, director of NYU Wireless, a research group that helped pioneer use of 5G mmWaves in the face of heavy skepticism. “I am very bullish on the idea of cellular above 95 GHz, and I am sure it will happen,” he said.
