Globalstar hails 3GPP's approval of Band 53 for 2.4 GHz Terrestrial Spectrum

3GPP has approved a global standard for terrestrial use of Globalstar’s spectrum at 2483.5-2495 MHz.

Specifically, 3GPP has designated Globalstar’s terrestrial S-band as Band 53, which now permits LTE services in the U.S. with additional geographies expected to be added in 2019. The approval provides for Time Division Duplex (TDD) services in Band 53 as a standalone band and allows Globalstar’s spectrum to serve as an anchor channel for carrier aggregation and LAA next year.

Jay Monroe, Executive Chairman of Globalstar, commented, “3GPP standardization represents an important milestone in the Company’s spectrum efforts. We appreciate the industry’s support of our band and the many parties who participated in its technical development leading to approval. This process is the culmination of intensive standards work and we highly value our technical team who drove this to completion on an accelerated schedule.”

FCC Opens Door for Globalstar Terrestrial Broadband Using 22 MHz at 2.4 GHz

The FCC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) paving the way to allow Globalstar to deploy a terrestrial broadband network over 22 MHz of spectrum in the 2.4 GHz band.

Globalstar said the proposed new rules would allow it to provide terrestrial broadband services over its 11.5 MHz of previously-licensed S-band spectrum at 2483.5-2495 MHz, as well as the adjacent 10.5 MHz of unlicensed spectrum at 2473-2483.5 MHz.

"The FCC's release of Globalstar's requested Notice of Proposed Rulemaking last Friday represents a seminal development and yet another step forward in Globalstar's renaissance," said Jay Monroe, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "We look forward to receiving the public's comments and working towards a final order over the next several months."
