5GAA presents 5.9 GHz Band Plan to the FCC that will enable evolution of C-V2X from LTE to 5G
The 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) has recently filed a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) presenting the content of its band plan for the 5.9 GHz band.
The filing, which was submitted last 3rd April, positions C-V2X as the best opportunity to further the vision of ITS in the 5.9 GHz band, outlining that the FCC should pursue a forward-looking approach for licensed ITS operations in the 5.9 GHz band towards facilitating the evolution path towards 5G.
Moreover, the filing also follows-up on 5GAA’s waiver request, filed with the objective of enabling initial deployments of this potentially life-saving technology as soon as possible.
Just on February major stakeholders from the automobile, wireless, and technology industries filed comments to the FCC in support of the 5G Automotive Association’s waiver request seeking permission to deploy Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology in a portion of the 5.9 GHz band.
