                       Verizon 3.5 GHz Experiment Proposal

1. Introduction
Verizon Communications Inc. (Verizon or the Company) is a holding company that, acting
through its subsidiaries, is one of the world’s leading providers of communications, information
and entertainment products and services to consumers, businesses and governmental
agencies. With a presence around the world, we offer voice, data and video services and
solutions on our wireless and wireline networks that are designed to meet customers’ demand
for mobility, reliable network connectivity, security and control. We have two reportable
segments, Wireless and Wireline. Our wireless business, operating as Verizon Wireless,
provides voice and data services and equipment sales across the United States (U.S.) using
one of the most extensive and reliable wireless networks.

2. Experiment Description
Verizon is working with partner companies to conduct short-term experimental testing to collect
Continuous Wave (“CW”) data between 3650-3700 MHz for a propagation modeling study in
suburban, urban, and dense urban environments.

The purpose of the proposed tests is:

    1) Evaluation of the radio path loss characteristics of 3.6 GHz CBRS Band for outdoor

Field tests will be conducted in highly controlled field environment, in order to assist in accurate
characterization of the propagation environment. The testing will benefit the public interest by
enabling the deployment scenarios outside of a lab environment but in a controlled and
managed manner.

Verizon has the ability to shut down all transmissions operated under the experimental license
in the unlikely event any interference occurs.

3. Hours of operation and equipment shut down
The radio units and antennas will be deployed on the structures/outdoor locations. The
deployments will be in temporary nature, such that, a test at any location will take a maximum of
12 - 14 hours. Equipment can be shut down speedily, if the need arises, by contacting the
interference coordinators identified in the section “Interference Coordination”

4. Interference Coordination
Immediate requests to stop transmissions under this STA can be communicated to Sean Daniel,
Verizon, at (602)206-1326 or by email at sean.daniel@verizonwireless.com.

5. Trial Duration
Approximately two months, beginning approximately on March 04, 2019.


6. Evaluation Equipment Transmitter Information
Radio Systems
The Experiment will include transmitting and collecting CW data using 3.65-3.7 GHz radio
systems, with test equipment consisting of a self-contained equipment box with non-
experimental transmitter, filters, watt meters, power supply, cabling, and omni-directional
antennas up to five feet in height (on top of an existing, temporary, or mobile structure). The
equipment box weighs about 45 pounds, is approximately 30” (l) x 30” (w) x 14” (h) in size and
is powered from an external A/C power outlet. The maximum transmitter power will not exceed
20W / 43 dBm. The receive equipment does not have the capability to transmit RF signals.

Antenna Systems
The maximum gain of any antenna deployed will not exceed 10 dBi. Furthermore, the main lobe
of any antenna used will be pointed approximately to the horizon plus or minus 10 degrees. The
azimuthal orientation of the main lobe of the antenna may be arbitrary.

The radio transmitters may occupy spectrum from 3650 MHz to 3700 MHz, transmitting a single
narrow band CW channel within that range. The maximum CW channel bandwidth is 10 KHz.
No digital modulation will be used.
