In both instances, please reference the Project docket number CP21–23–000 in your submission. (1) You may file your protest, motion to intervene, and comments by using the Commission’s eFiling feature, which is located on the Commission’s website (www.ferc.gov) under the link to Documents and Filings. New eFiling users must first create an account by clicking on ‘‘eRegister.’’ You will be asked to select the type of filing you are making; first select General’’ and then select ‘‘Protest’’, ‘‘Intervention’’, or ‘‘Comment on a Filing’’; or 7 (2) You can file a paper copy of your submission by mailing it to the address below.8 Your submission must reference the Project docket number CP21–23– 000. Kimberly D. Bose, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20426. The Commission encourages electronic filing of submissions (option 1 above) and has eFiling staff available to assist you at (202) 502–8258 or FercOnlineSupport@ferc.gov. Protests and motions to intervene must be served on the applicant either by mail or email (with a link to the document) at: dave_hammel@ tcenergy.com, 700 Louisiana Street, Suite 700, Houston, TX 77002–2700. Any subsequent submissions by an intervenor must be served on the applicant and all other parties to the proceeding. Contact information for parties can be downloaded from the service list at the eService link on FERC Online. Tracking the Proceeding jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Throughout the proceeding, additional information about the project will be available from the Commission’s Office of External Affairs, at (866) 208– FERC, or on the FERC website at www.ferc.gov using the ‘‘eLibrary’’ link as described above. The eLibrary link also provides access to the texts of all formal documents issued by the Commission, such as orders, notices, and rulemakings. 7 Additionally, you may file your comments electronically by using the eComment feature, which is located on the Commission’s website at www.ferc.gov under the link to Documents and Filings.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This is a summary of the Commission’s document, Public Notice, DA 21–7, ET Docket No. 18–295, GN Docket No. 17– 183, released January 11, 2021. The full text of this document is available for public inspection and can be downloaded at: https://www.fcc.gov/ document/oet-seeks-info-6-ghz-u-niiclient-client-device-communications or by using the search function for ET Docket No. 18–295 on the Commission’s ECFS web page at www.fcc.gov/ecfs. SUMMARY: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Synopsis 1. In the 6 GHz Further Notice, the Commission sought comment on additional actions that it should take to further expand unlicensed operations in the 6 GHz band through revisions to the existing rules for standard-power or low-power indoor operations or by authorizing a third type of operation, VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:27 Jan 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 very low power operations. Among the comments filed, unlicensed proponents requested that the Commission modify its low-power indoor device rules to permit client-to-client device communications, which they assert would enable additional types of innovative unlicensed operations in the band. The Fixed Wireless Communications Coalition opposes any such revisions and asserts that there is no record support for permitting clientto-client communications in this band. 2. In the 6 GHz Order, the Commission prohibited unlicensed client devices from acting as ‘‘mobile hotspots’’ because ‘‘[p]ermitting a client device operating under the control of an access point to authorize the operation of additional client devices could potentially increase the distance between these additional client devices and the access point and increase the potential for harmful interference to fixed service receivers or electronic news gathering operations.’’ To avoid this situation, the Commission’s rules prohibit 6 GHz U–NII client devices from directly communicating with one another. The Commission did not, however, examine whether a more limited approach to indoor client-toclient communications within the ambit of the 6 GHz Notice should be permissible—e.g., when a client is not acting as a mobile hotspot. Accordingly, Apple, Broadcom et al. suggest that client devices be permitted to directly communicate with each other if they can decode an enabling signal transmitted by a low-power indoor access point within the last four seconds. They suggest that the Commission could further constrain client-to-client communications by requiring that the enabling signal be received at a signal strength of at least ¥99 dBm/MHz. According to Apple, Broadcom et al., as a client device could communicate at this signal level with a low-power indoor access point in a traditional access-point-to-client topology under the existing rules, this would ensure each individual client participating in client-to-client communications is safely inside the area where a client device is authorized to communicate with an access point 3. The Commission takes this opportunity to invite interested parties to supplement the record, for the Commission’s consideration, on whether and under what circumstances client devices could be permitted to directly communicate with each other in a limited manner consistent with the rationale underlying the Commission’s decisions in the 6 GHz Order that were targeted at protecting incumbent PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 licensed services. More specifically, the Commission invites comment on whether to permit 6 GHz U–NII client devices to directly communicate when they are under the control of or have received an enabling signal from a lowpower indoor access point. As an initial matter, commenters should explain how they define an enabling signal, what characteristics it must have, how it is similar or different from signals, such as beacons, that access points already use to connect with client devices, and the degree to which an enabling signal would tether a client device not under the direct control of an access point to that access point. Commenters should also provide information on the types of applications that direct client-to-client communications would enable that cannot be accomplished by communications through an access point. In addition, commenters advocating for rule changes should address whether direct client-to-client communications should be under the current power limits or restricted to lower power limits to reduce the potential for harmful interference to incumbent operations. In this connection, the Commission notes that client devices under the control of a low-power indoor access point are permitted to operate up to 24 dBm EIRP over 320-megahertz channels (or ¥1 dBm/MHz). 4. As the 6 GHz Order explained, the requirement that 6 GHz U–NII client devices operate under the control of either a standard-power or low-power indoor access point is designed to prevent client devices from causing harmful interference by limiting their operation either to outdoors in areas where the AFC system has determined that interference will not occur or to indoor locations where other factors such as building entry loss prevent harmful interference. In particular, operations under the control of a lowpower indoor access point is aimed at restricting operation of the client devices to indoor locations. It may be possible for a client device to receive an enabling signal from an access point even when the enabling signal is too weak to enable the client device to conduct communications with the access point. In such situations, the weak received signal level makes it more likely that the client device could be outdoors. By requiring the enabling signal have a specific signal strength, this problem could be potentially avoided. If the Commission were to adopt rules permitting client-to-client communications, should it require the enabling signal from the low-power E:\FR\FM\22JAN1.SGM 22JAN1
