Commission Announces “Beta” Launch of Spectrum Dashboard
Washington, D.C. – Today, the Federal Communications Commission announced the “beta” release of its Spectrum Dashboard. The Spectrum Dashboard allows users to more easily review how spectrum bands are allocated and used and also allows users to identify license holders in specific areas. The initial version released today provides information covering frequencies between 225 MHz and 3.7 GHz – the range of spectrum potentially usable for mobile broadband. In addition, the Spectrum Dashboard contains enhanced search, mapping and data download capabilities for licenses in the following services in that range: 700 MHz Band; Advanced Wireless Service (AWS); Broadband Personal Communications Service (PCS); Broadband Radio Service (BRS); Educational Broadband Service (EBS); Cellular; 2.3 GHz Wireless Communications Service (WCS); Full Power TV Broadcast; and Mobile Satellite Services (MSS).
The Spectrum Dashboard will increase transparency into how radio spectrum is being used in the United States. In conjunction with the release of the National Broadband Plan, the Spectrum Dashboard provides a resource for stakeholders who want to participate in the deployment of wireless broadband throughout the nation.
