The NOI allows for any proposal to be made, proposals are not limited to responses to FCC suggestions or proposals.

doc.: IEEE 15-14-0639-03-003d Submission November 2014 John Notor, Notor Research Slide 5 FCC Focus on 57-64 GHz, 64-71 GHz Licensing Status: There are no licensed operations in 57-64 GHz and 64-71 GHz. Unlicensed operation within the 57-64 GHz band is permitted under Part 15 of our rules. Non-Federal government operators of outdoor radio equipment in the 57-64 GHz band segment are not required to obtain individual licenses. Last year, the Commission allowed longer communication distances for outdoor point-to-point systems in the 57-64 GHz band by allowing higher powers, as well as other changes. Frequencies from 64-71 GHz are not available for licenses issued in the terrestrial Fixed Service or for any satellite services except for inter-satellite service. FCC rules list 65-71 GHz as available for Inter-Satellite (ISS) licenses, but there are no current ISS licenses.

Provide support information related to 60 GHz applications, including work done for 802.15.3c and work in process for 802.15.3d indicating briefly technology and market potential. Support the effort to extend unlicensed mobile operations to 100 GHz. 1.Requires some informal analysis of likely impact to other systems: a.Fixed Satellite Services (FSS) b.Fixed Terrestrial Services c.Collision avoidance radars. d.Other mobile and fixed services. 2.Requires some support for the benefits of extending unlicensed to 100 GHz.
