FCC extends comment deadline on recommendations for improved receiver performance

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has extended the deadline for comments on its recent White Paper containing recommendations to improve receiver performance.

The White Paper, “Interference Limits Policy—The use of harm claim thresholds to improve the interference tolerance of wireless systems,” was issued by the FCC’s Technical Advisory Council (TAC) in April 2013 to address the role of signal receivers as part of the overall effort to increase wireless spectrum utilization. Specifically, the Paper recommends that receiver technology should be included in spectrum policy efforts by establishing ceilings for interference limits, or “harm claim thresholds.”

According to the White Paper, this approach would allow the Commission to offer guidance on optimizing receiver performance without dictating specific technical approaches or remedies.

The Commission has extended until July 22, 2013 its comment deadline in connection with these recommendations, following requests from the Consumer Electronics Association, the National Association of Broadcasters and the GPS Innovation Alliance to further review the contents and policy proposals detailed in the White Paper.
