FCC Grants Nationwide License for Connected Vehicle DSRC Radio Operation to Applied Information

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has granted Applied Information, Inc. a nationwide Intelligent Transportation Service (ITS) license in the 5.9 GHz spectrum band that authorizes the Company to provide Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) for the infrastructure and in vehicles, the company said.

The nationwide DSRC license enables the company to provide vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) connected vehicle communications for the transportation infrastructure, including traffic signals, school zone safety beacons and other electronic traffic control and information devices. Applied Information has deployments of DSRC radios in several states.

The Company was previously granted three geographic licenses to operate Cellular-Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X Direct) by the FCC. Applied Information´s Dual-Mode/Dual-Active technology enables both DSRC and C-V2X Direct radios to communicate simultaneously.

Applied Information has developed a Dual-Mode/Dual-Active Roadside Unit and Dual-Mode/Dual-Active Onboard Unit for mobile infrastructure such as emergency vehicles for traffic signal preemption, transit buses for traffic signal priority and vehicles involved in roadside work zones.
