Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) announced an agreement with Space Data to make approximately 2 MHz of 900 MHz nationwide NPCS spectrum available to members and customers.
This unencumbered, clean spectrum is suitable for flexible use including Machine to Machine (M2M), traditional PTT, and digital technologies for voice, Push to Talk (PTT) or broadband and video and can be leased or purchased through EWA.
“EWA routinely responds to spectrum availability requests from manufacturers, wireless sales and service providers and large enterprise users of radio spectrum”, explained Mark E. Crosby, President and CEO of EWA.
“EWA brings expertise in creating a database for the Space Data spectrum and valuable spectrum management services including automated frequency coordination. This Space Data spectrum will be of great interest and a valuable asset to EWA members and customers.”
“EWA’s well earned reputation for spectrum expertise, from identifying frequency availability to ensuring best and highest use, is among the reasons we created this partnership,” according to Jerry Knoblach, Chairman and CEO, Space Data. “We are enthusiastic about EWA’s national presence, unique expertise and broad access to potential customers.”
Space Data is the largest holder of NPCS 900 MHz spectrum licenses in the US. The leader in near space communications, Space Data’s SkySite®, platforms provide wide area coverage from altitudes of 65,000 to 100,000 feet.
SkySites provide coverage footprints of over 400 miles in diameter (over 125,000 square miles per site) in areas where traditional terrestrial based networks are not available or practical and satellite services are cost prohibitive.
