FCC Establishes Spectrum Management Principles for Transmitters, Receivers

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has published a set of high-level principles that it says will guide its management of the electromagnetic spectrum in the future.

The FCC’s Policy Statement, “Principles for Promoting Efficient Use of Spectrum and Opportunities for New Services,” presents a framework designed to consider both transmitter and receiver components of wireless systems. The goal of the framework is reportedly to promote improved receiver performance as a key focal point in making more efficient use of the available spectrum and enabling new and advanced wireless technologies to be introduced to the market.

According to the FCC, the Policy Statement is based largely on proceedings held last year by the Commission, as well as research conducted by the FCC’s Technological Advisory Council.
