Comsearch, an Andrew Corporation company, has introduced a turnkey set of services that will assist winners in the Federal Communications Commission's advanced wireless spectrum (AWS) auctions with deploying new services in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Comsearch's incumbent relocation solutions are tailored to address the FCC's requirements for those acquiring 1.7 GHz and 2.1 GHz spectrum, specifically the need to address interference with existing federal government and commercial systems in those radio bands. Comsearch uses its iQ.clearXG(TM) software to identify channels that can be shared without causing interference to 1.7 GHz and 2.1 GHz incumbents. In instances where spectrum sharing is not an option, Comsearch will facilitate relocating an incumbent to a different band through negotiation and project management.

"Comsearch provides a one-stop relocation solution covering all stages of the deployment process," said Chris Hardy, vice president and general manager, Comsearch. "Comsearch is uniquely qualified--by virtue of our extensive experience in the PCS bands, our proprietary software and databases, and our vast program management resources--to offer the most cost-effective and time-saving incumbent relocation solutions."

Sharing spectrum between AWS systems and incumbent fixed and mobile systems in the 1.7 GHz and 2.1 GHz bands, and immediate relocation of potentially impacted incumbent systems, will be critical to deployment of new advanced services. Comsearch's turnkey offerings for AWS providers, which combine specialized services, highly accurate databases, and program management skills, include:

-- Spectrum sharing studies

-- Incumbent negotiation and contract execution

-- Relocation program management

-- Coordination with federal government and commercial incumbents

-- System assessment and review

-- Frequency clearing for drive testing

-- Site audits and radio frequency measurements

"No one is more qualified in spectrum management and the AWS process than the people of Comsearch," Hardy said. "For more than 29 years, we have addressed the specific challenges of identifying, analyzing, and resolving radio frequency interference for an evolving wireless industry. We look forward to supporting auction winners, as we have done in the past, to meet their unique deployment requirements."
