WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS BUREAU AND OFFICE OF ENGINEERING AND
TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCE WORKSHOP ON
SMALL CELL AND SPECTRUM SHARING CONCEPTS IN THE 3.5 GHz NPRMIn December 2012, the Federal Communications Commission adopted a Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking (NPRM) that would make 100 MHz of spectrum available for shared small cell use in the
3550-3650 MHz band (3.5 GHz Band).1 The FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and Office of
Engineering and Technology will host a workshop on Wednesday, March 13, 2013, starting at 9:00AM in
the Commission Meeting Room at the FCC Headquarters Building in Washington, DC to further explore
the concepts and proposals raised in the NPRM.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together top innovators and thinkers in the small cell,
database management, and spectrum sharing fields to discuss technological developments. The workshop
will explore small technology in the context of the 3.5 GHz Band as well as database and dynamic
spectrum sharing technologies that could be utilized to manage access to the Band.
The Bureaus will release a more detailed agenda closer to the date of the workshop.
