On January 22, 2020, Audi, Qualcomm, and the Virginia Department of Transportation announced the deployment of a new C-V2X (Cellular Vehicle to Everything) in Northern Virginia. According to the announcement, this deployment will include warnings that alert cars to work zones as well as signal phase and timing (SPaT) to provide cars with a countdown from red to green lights. 

Chairman Ajit Pai favorably on this announcement, stating that this technology is promising, as it enables communication between cars, infrastructure, pedestrians, cyclists, and road workers. Additionally, he commented on a proposal to designate a portion of the 5.9 GHz band to this technology, stating: 

 

"Today’s C-V2X deployment announcement was only made possible through an experimental license. That’s because the current rules governing the 5.9 GHz band lock us into DSRC, a technology authorized by the FCC more than twenty years ago that has never been widely deployed. The FCC recognizes the promise of C-V2X, having voted unanimously in December on a proposal to designate 20 megahertz for its deployment in the 5.9 GHz band. If this proposal is adopted, it would be a significant step forward for automotive safety, since there is currently no spectrum designated for C-V2X. Americans on the move would be the beneficiaries—but only if the FCC takes action and leaves the failed status quo behind." 

 

C-V2X is divided into four separate communications categories: 

 

  • V2V Communication: supports safety systems with collision-avoidance capabilities 
  • V2I Communication: controls emissions, reduces congestion, and aids in other safety-related applications
  • V2P Communication: allows cars to see other people and send alerts to drivers and pedestrians via smartphone applications 
  • V2C Communication: supports cloud-based security, information, and entertainment.

On January 22, 2020, the FCC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: . 

This notice proposes the removal of existing non-federal secondary radiolocation and amateur allocations in the 3.1 - 3.55 GHz band. In addition, it proposes the relocation of incumbent non-federal operations out of the band. This proposed rule would eliminate the non-federal radio location services and non-federal amateur allocations in the band. 

This NPRM seeks comment on appropriate relocation options, the process of relocation, the transition mechanism for relocation, and potential costs. Comments are due by February 21; reply comments are due by March 23. 

On November 26, 2019, the FCC released a designating Chinese telecommunications manufacturers Huawei and ZTE as covered companies, or those who pose a risk to the national security of the United States. Following the Report and Order, U.S. operators were to remove and replace any existing equipment from these companies and were prohibited from purchasing, obtaining, maintaining, improving, modifying, or otherwise supporting any equipment or services from these companies. Huawei, claiming the FCC did not provide any evidence of its risk to the U.S., has challenged the FCC in court. The FCC is now  on whether Huawei should be designated as a covered company. Comments are due by February 3, 2020.   

According to the FCC, Huawei poses a security risk to the U.S. because "Chinese intelligence agencies have opportunities to tamper with their products in both the design and manufacturing processes." Huawei also offers services managing telecommunications equipment, which the FCC believes could be a front used to give operators access to large amounts of U.S. user data for malicious purposes. Huawei argues that the U.S. is not subject to Chinese security laws, but the FCC has cited Huawei's obligation under Chinese law to "assist with Chinese intelligence-gathering" as evidence that Huawei is required to—and could—fulfill Chinese government objectives. Huawei denies all allegations and claims the FCC lacks the authority to prohibit the use or sale of its equipment.

In August of 2019, the Chicago Tribune published an article entitled “,” an article that sparked a wild debate between the proponents and critics of the FCC’s current RF exposure limits for cell phones. Why? Because the Chicago Tribune reported that various cell phone models tested in their experiment emitted RF levels far above the FCC’s limits.

On December 12, 2019, the FCC proposed several revisions to the rules regarding the 3。1 – 3。55 GHz band, including the relocation of incumbent non-federal users and the removal of existing non-federal secondary radiolocation and amateur allocations in this band。 These revisions would pave the way for the progression of 5G by making this spectrum available for advanced commercial services as well as its current users。

On December 4, 2019, the FCC released a notice regarding a report and order as well as proposed rulemaking斗地主达人 on RF exposure limits. In this notice, the FCC also declines requests to increase/decrease existing RF exposure limits as well as a petition to treat the outer ears separately from other extremities in regard to RF exposure limits. In this notice, the FCC performs the following: 

  • Revises implementing rules to reflect modern technology. 
  • Updates existing criteria for determining when a licensee is exempt from RF exposure evaluation criteria. 
  • Provides more flexibility for licensees to establish compliance with RF exposure limits. 
  • Provides methods that RF equipment operators can use to mitigate the risk of excess exposure. 
  • Proposes an additional limit for localized RF exposure. 
  • Proposes methodologies for compliance for portable devices operating at high GHz frequencies and an extension to THz frequencies as well.
  • Proposes the acceptance of WPT equipment under Parts 15 and 18.

Last week, the Department of Defense (DoD) published a letter to the FCC, urging chair members to reject Ligado Network's proposal to build a wireless communication system that, according to two very different perspectives, could harm or help the United States. Ligado Networks, formerly known as LightSquared, has awaited the FCC's decision for nearly ten years now, but the proposal is still on hold.

In the age of IoT and AI, many are now wondering if the standards that govern innovative industries, such as the technology and medical device industries, are stifling innovation. According to a 2017 study, , in markets with both low and high uncertainty, businesses that experience problems with standards have to spend a larger amount of resources to be innovative. Many manufacturers, however, don't end up marketing their products because they cannot pass compliance with regulatory bodies and do not possess the resources to re-test and redesign products. This poses a significant threat to the global economy as well as to technological evolution.      

斗地主达人On October 29, 2019, the FCC released draft as part of a "permit-but-disclose" proceeding. This document would ensure the following: 

  • Prohibit the use of USF funds to purchase equipment from a company that poses a national security threat to the U.S communications network (known as covered companies). 
  • Designate Huawei Technologies Company and ZTE Corporation as covered companies.
  • Require USF recipients to remove existing equipment bought from covered companies. 
  • Require ETCs to remove covered equipment in the event that they will be reimbursed.  
  • Analyze ETCs' current possession of covered equipment and deduce the costs to remove such equipment. 

On August 22, 2019, the FCC issued an enforcement advisory in regard to several companies' interference with the Federal Aviation Administration's terminal doppler weather radar station in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 

According to investigations under the Enforcement Bureau, interference was caused by outdoor wireless devices, in particular, those operated by wireless internet service providers (WISPs) to provide point-to-point broadband connectivity.
