On July 29, 2019, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) and the Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) released a Public Notice approving the Environmental Sensing Capability (“ESC”) sensor deployment and coverage plans (ESC Sensor Registrations) of three operators: CommScope, Federated Wireless, Inc. (“Federated”), and Google (GN Docket No. 15-319).

The ESC operators are authorized to operate their ESC sensors consistent with the information provided in their Registrations – including sensor locations, configuration and dynamic protection area (“DPA”) coverage.
