Assessment of the Viability of Accommodating Wireless Broadband in the 1755 - 1850 MHz Band [open pdf - 2MB]
"The Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) led an interagency group to determine the viability of accommodating commercial wireless broadband in the 1755-1850 MHz band. While the analyses summarized in this report indicates there are a number of challenges to repurposing, NTIA concludes that it is possible to repurpose all 95 megahertz of the band. […] The objective of this report is to assess the potential of the 1755-1850 MHz band to accommodate wireless broadband. NTIA invited federal agencies with operations in the band (listed below) to participate in the analysis. NTIA, via the PPSG, asked the federal agencies to analyze options, develop plans, and outline requirements for relocation of their federal systems out of the band while ensuring continuity of their critical operations. Final reports from the federal agencies provide timelines, estimated costs, and prerequisites that need to be satisfied to accommodate reallocation. An asterisk (*) denotes the agencies that provided input. This report summarizes their input. Where possible, NTIA made these inputs available to the public on NTIA's website. Due to the detailed and sensitive nature of some of the inputs, NTIA cannot make all agency documents available to the public. In some cases, agencies supplied a separate version of their input for public release."
