FCC extends 'First Wave' deadline in 3.5 GHz proceeding to May 15

The FCC has extended the deadline for "First Wave" proposals from prospective Spectrum Access System (SAS) administrators and Environmental Sensing Capability (ESC) operators. Interested parties now have until May 15, 2016, to submit their proposals; the previous deadline was April 15.

"We believe it is in the public interest to grant an extension to allow parties to fully address the issues raised in the 3.5 GHz Order and SAS/ESC Public Notice," the FCC said. Additional time will allow prospective SAS administrators and ESC operators to more thoroughly address the complex issues raised in the proceeding. For more, see this FCC Public Notice.
