FCC Decision on Out of Band Emissions (OOBE)

On June 6, the FCC adopted its Fifth Report and Order in the docket relating to the establishment of new rules governing the 2.5 GHz band, to facilitate the provision of wireless services over EBS and its commercial counterpart, BRS.  The decision in this case was to make a minor change in the technical rules establishing limits on the out-of-band emissions (“OOBE”) for mobile devices operating in the 2.5 GHz band.  The change would relax these limits somewhat, to accommodate the use of wider channel bandwidths in network systems operating in the band.  Wider channel bandwidths are desirable because they permit greater throughput over the spectrum, and therefore are more efficient.   The rule making had been initiated at the request of the Wireless Communications Association International (WCAI).  NEBSA and CTN supported the rule changes before the FCC.
