doc. : IEEE 802. 11 -10/0009 r 1 January 2010 Key Bridge Database Summary 1. 2. Collect registered incumbent transmitter data from the FCC every 24 hours Validate and identify active protected entity records within the aggregate data set a. Convert all location data to NAD 83 where necessary 3. Enable the registration of certain protected entities not already in FCC databases a. Accommodate cable head ends, BAS fixed links, LP-AUX microphones, etc. 4. Enable the registration of Fixed TV band devices 5. Enable the verification, correction or removal of records in the database 6. Synchronize certain database records with other authorized administrators 7. Implement algorithms to calculate protected services contours for each respective protected entity 8. Implement algorithms to calculate available channels for any given location, time and device parameters 9. Enable the FCC to enforce denial of channel list services to any specific or model of TV band device 10. Identify and authenticate the certification and enforcement status of TVBDs 11. Implement a machine-to-machine transaction capability for TVBD channel-queries a. Accept channel list inquiries via the Internet from any TV band device b. Calculate, construct and communicate a standards-compliant channel listmessage 12. Implement a security framework that protects the TV bands administration system, its operational information services and data, plus end-user devices where possible Submission Slide 11 Rich Kennedy, Research In Motion

doc. : IEEE 802. 11 -10/0009 r 1 January 2010 Google Summary • Recommendations – “…appropriately flexible and market-driven approach” – “…a significant number of retail database suppliers will best ensure a healthy and competitive ecosystem” – “…Google is prepared to provide an end-to-end TVWS database solution, preferably as one of several such suppliers” [FCC commissioner Mc. Dowell doesn’t like this idea] – “…we believe the clearinghouse model has many benefits, including solving the traditionally burdensome requirement of syncing with multiple parties” • • • “…Google has sufficient funds and access to capital to develop and operate the proposed Database for a full five-year term” “Google does not plan to implement per-query fees” “If any user fee were to be charged in connection with the Database, it probably would be more reasonable to adopt something akin to per-unit device registration fee” Submission Slide 12 Rich Kennedy, Research In Motion
