TIA Files Ex Parte Letter with FCC on Progeny LMS Waiver Request

ARLINGTON, VA (July 9, 2012) - On Friday, July 6, 2012, the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) filed an ex parte letter with the Federal Communications Commission regarding a waiver request by Progeny LMS, LLC on devices that operate in the 902-928 MHz band on an unlicensed basis. TIA cautioned the Commission to take further measures to ensure that unlicensed operations in the M-LMS Band are protected from harmful interference from the other services. TIA said any allowance by the Commission of Progeny’s M-LMS system should be conditioned on further testing to safeguard Part 15 stakeholders from this harmful interference.
