LightSquared Submits Nationwide Wireless Broadband Plan to FCC
|01 июля 2011|
USA based LTE network, LightSquared has formally presented its modified business plans to the telecoms regulator in its effort to deal with ongoing concerns about interference with the GPS network.LightSquared's proposal outlines a three-part solution for resolving GPS interference issues involving GPS devices, which was detailed in recommendations filed at the FCC today. GPS device test results, which were also filed at the FCC today, are also said to demonstrate that the interference is caused by the GPS device manufacturer's decision over the last eight years to design products that depend on using spectrum assigned to other FCC licensees.
"This issue will be resolved by good data, smart engineers and good faith problem solving dialog. The end-result will be continuity for the reliable and safe GPS system we have come to depend on along with a new high speed wireless network that will provide huge benefits to consumers,'' said Sanjiv Ahuja, LightSquared Chairman and CEO.
Despite the GPS industry's claims, LightSquared says that the FCC does not face a stark choice between reliable GPS service and a new competitor in the broadband market. The testing results show LightSquared's proposed solution resolves interference for approximately 99.5 percent of all commercial GPS devices- including all of the 300 million GPS-enabled cell phones.
LightSquared said that it is unthinkable that a nation which recently completed a complex digital-television transition involving nearly every household in the USA will be stymied by a problem posed by approximately 200,000 GPS devices.
In the meantime, LightSquared aims to continue working with the FCC, NTIA, and other federal agencies in its effort to find solutions to the issue.
