WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) recent announcement (of Dec. 28) that it will allocate 27 MHz in seven bands of spectrum to commercial use is an important step for the Time Division Duplexing (TDD) industry and all innovative spectrally efficient wireless technologies, according to the TDD Coalition, a telecommunications industry consortium. The action is the second time in less than a month that the Commission has reclaimed spectrum for commercial use in order to promote new telecommunications technologies such as TDD. "This announcement by the FCC is an important step toward encouraging technologies like TDD that require only a relatively small band for bi- directional broadband wireless communications," said Remi Chayer, chairman of the TDD Coalition and technical marketing manager at Harris Corp. "As spectrum becomes more valuable, it becomes essential that we promote technologies like TDD that use only one channel for both upstream and downstream traffic, making this a particularly effective means of transmitting data in the most efficient way."Time Division Duplexing (TDD) Coalition
