Shure Files Petition With FCC

Shure Incorporated recently filed petition with the FCC for reconsideration of the FCC White Spaces Rules. News of this petition is written in an article at ProSoundNews.com. But Shure is not alone in their concern of these new White Space Rules.

In addition to Shure?s Petition for Reconsideration, several other companies and organizations also submitted their own filings, including the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Dell, Microsoft, Motorola, Sprint-Nextel, and Adaptrum.

The Senior Director of Industry and Public Relations for Shure, Mark Brunner said, ?It is imperative that these rules provide sufficient protection when actually implemented in real world environments. It is critical that the FCC’s technical and operational rules–including pre-certification testing rules–?get it right? before mass produced equipment is pushed into the market.?

Toward that end, Shure urged in its filing that the Commission impose rigorous certification testing, open to the public, on hybrid geolocation/sensing devices. Shure also sought reconsideration of the FCC decision to permit portable devices to operate on first adjacent channels to DTV. At a minimum, Shure is asking that the FCC reduce the allowable power of TV band device (TVBD) operations on adjacent channels.
