1 FCC & 600 MHz Spectrum Update 2017 Ben Escobedo Sr. Market Development

2 Wireless Microphone Technology VHF (30 MHz 300 MHz) First performance wireless microphones were VHF Solid Performance Long Antennas LONG ANTENNAS!

3 Wireless Microphone Technology UHF (300 MHz 1 GHz) Sweet spot of wireless range (power vs. distance) Manageable antenna length Excellent wave propagation Common frequencies for most PRO wireless microphones Axient Dig ital (pictu red)

4 Wireless Microphone Technology 1.9 GHz (DECT) (1920 MHz to 1930 MHz in USA) License-free operation in most parts of the world - DECT Less wave propagation than UHF (due to short wave length) Less channel count than UHF Latency 10-19ms for most devices (Analog UHF = near zero latency)

5 Wireless Microphone Technology 2.4 GHz (300 MHz 2.4 GHz) License-free operation in most parts of the world Short antenna length Less wave propagation than UHF (due to short wave length) Crowded band with many devices of all kinds (RF mics 6-12ch MAX ch count)

6 The Big Picture Why? Global mobile data growth rate of 81% for 2013 Video exceeds 50% of traffic for the first time 2013 mobile data was 18X the total internet in 2000 Mobile devices exceed world s population in 2014 US Federal government is in a global competition to find and allocate new spectrum for mobile broadband
