Today's airwaves are prime real estate for anyone selling telecom services. But the public frequencies are not for sale; they are allocated, licensed and regulated by the FCC. Therefore, if your business offers a service that goes out over the airwaves, you'll need engineers, lawyers, license consultants and developers with expertise in "spectrum planning". Informed spectrum planning is the only way to ensure you'll get access to the bands that transmit what you sell, and to guarantee that products you market will be compatible with technology used by your customers. Despite the fact that spectrum planning is baseline information for today's hottest businesses, it remains an esoteric field. All data are in the public domain and available on the Web, but they are widely scattered, often out of date, sometimes contradictory, and written in Federalese. This book cuts through the confusion and deliberate obfuscation to make spectrum planning a much more intuitive exercise. There are 368 bands in the public spectrum, although not all of them have been commercialized yet. For each band, this reference provides the following hard data: scientific definition; allowable uses; licensees and term of license; and applicable regulations in the US and elsewhere. In addition SpectrumGuide offers interpretive aids for each band covered: footnotes on usage from government, international and other sources; business, legal and technical trends analysis affecting the band; pending legislation and issues before the FCC; effective dates of new legislation; and a policy statement from the trade organization or government agency representing users of the band.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR SPECTRUM PLANNING
Wireless Spectrum Finder maps out that prime expanse of virtual real estate, the public airwaves. These are the frequency bands used for all wireless communications from TV broadcasts to cellular phones, wireless Internet to spy satellites, and the many new applications agleam in developers' eyes. Yet information on the properties, availability, and regulation of key radio bands is hard to find--and often hard to interpret once found.

*Clear, comprehensive coverage of more than 350 bands in the U.S. spectrum
*Exhaustively researched data and analysis of the regulartory, business, legal, and technical factors affecting each band
*Insightful commentary helpful to anyone looking to exploit, change, or influence FCC policy
*Scientific definitions and allowable uses for each band
*Types of licenses and their geographic areas and business ventures
*Straightforward pointers to key sources and proceedings
*Up-to-date FCC terminology and definitions
*Regulatory trends, including FCC deliberations on the use of ultra wide band (UWB), software-defined radio (SDR), and secondary markets in spectrum
*Informed explanations of FCC rules and regulatory powers, including official loopholes
