5G Americas provides comments in response to the Commission’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“Notice”) concerning the use of the 5.850-5.925 MHz (“5.9 GHz”) band.
Since 1999, 75 MHz in the 5.9 GHz band has been designated by the Commission for Intelligent Transportation Systems (“ITS”) and restricted to the use of Dedicated Short-Range Communications (“DSRC”) technology, thereby precluding the use of new cellular-based ITS direct communications technology (known as C-V2X PC5), which has been standardized in the 3GPP standards group.
