Updates on the 3 GHz Band (presentation slides)
Mark Gibson (CommScope

The 3 GHz band (3100-4200 MHz) has been the center of activity for several years now. Considering CBRS, the 3.7 GHz band, the 3.45 GHz band and the band(s) from 3.1-3.45 GHz, it may be hard to keep track of developments. This session will look at each of the above band segments and provide updates and insights on activities. Includes panel with:

6 GHz Commercialization (introduction presentation)

The 6 GHz band will provide 850 MHz of spectrum for standard power unlicensed uses that will be under control of an Automatic Frequency Coordination system. What will it take to commercialize this spectrum? Other than AFC availability, what are some of the other factors that must be addressed on the road to commercial availability? What are some of the new use cases expected to be delivered by this spectrum? Moderated by Mark Gibson, featuring panelists:

Protection of Passive Services in Radio Spectrum
Andy Clegg (Google) and Kevin Gifford (University of Colorado, Boulder) (presentation slides)

Passive services are radio services that do not transmit, receiving and measuring natural radio emissions from terrestrial and cosmic sources. Such services are critical for purposes ranging from weather forecasting to understanding the origins of the universe. Increasingly, passive services have to share spectrum with commercial and government wireless systems, and protection of these critical services from interference in a shared environment can be a challenge. This session will present an introduction to passive services, and introduce the PASS project with the Wireless Innovation Forum exploring architectures to support this type of sharing.
