Google Can Now Test Millimeter-Wave Tech Throughout US
#1
According to reports that surfaced this Friday, Google has obtained permission from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to perform airborne and terrestrial millimeter wave testing throughout the United States. The FCC’s go-ahead is effective from March 17th, 2016 to April 1st, 2018. It covers frequencies in the 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz range, both for terrestrial and airborne transmitters. Given how Google’s request for this experimental license was met with quite a bit of informal objections in the States, the grant is only valid as long as Google doesn’t cause any kind of harmful interference to the already existing and authorized operations in the country. Naturally, the tech giant will also have to abide by the FCC RF safety standards. Google has also already preemptively commented on the concerns about potential health hazards to humans, animals, and plants in the vicinity of its testing grounds in a January letter sent to the FCC. In the letter, the tech company states that its planned experiments are far less risky in terms of potential RF exposure than many other “transmissions the Commission routinely authorizes.”
