WISPA made three filings with the FCC today
First, WISPA (together with UTC) is asking the FCC to extend the end of the CBRS transition from April 17, 2020 to January 8, 2023. If adopted, this will give 3650-3700 MHz licenses additional time to transition their equipment and customers to the Part 96 rules.
Second, WISPA is supporting efforts of NTCA and WTA to provide small CAF winners with an additional 12 months to meet speed and latency testing requirements. Recall that WISPA filed its own petition for reconsideration (with USTelecom and ITTA) of certain of the testing rules. The FCC has not yet established a pleading cycle regarding that petition and others filed by stakeholders.
Third, WISPA is asking the FCC to quickly make any needed clarification of the CAF “professional engineer” definition so as to not create undue uncertainty during the CAF process.
