5G, Wi-Fi, Spectrum Sharing: An In-Depth Look at Automated Frequency Coordination

  • HC-5, US Capitol Building (map)

Today, mobile apps let people routinely share their houses or rides. But the sharing economy has expanded to include another scarce resource: radio spectrum.

Spectrum sharing allows many types of users to broadcast on the same radio-frequency band at once; now we can use simple databases which are automatically searched to determine which frequencies are available for wireless devices to use at a given location and time.

The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA), in partnership with the Congressional Spectrum Caucus, is honored to host officials from the FCC, NTIA, DOD and various Congressional Offices for this unique workshop which will provide a summary of the DSA's recently published research paper on the advancements, benefits, and potential for the use of databases to manage spectrum allocation to achieve greater utilization of this limited resource and provide lower costs to allow greater connectivity across the US and around the world-- in urban and rural places.
