Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
T-Mobile USA, Inc. hereby respectfully requests experimental special temporary authority from November 12, 2017 to May 12, 2018. The experiments will operate in AWS-3 spectrum that is held by the Commission as well as utilizing 700 MHz, PCS, and AWS spectrum licensed to T-Mobile in the market. The testing will be in a highly controlled field environment that will help T-Mobile to allow the pre-commercial testing of new products outside of a lab environment but in a controlled and managed manner.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  T-Mobile is working with equipment vendors to conduct product testing. The trials at the location listed below will allow T-Mobile to test prototype equipment in outdoor and indoor setting prior to equipment certification. The trials will consist of a base station that will use the transmission parameters detailed below in Section C. Mobile units will operate within three kilometers of the base station. T-Mobile anticipates using as many as 36 mobile units at the location.

Certification
Neither the applicant nor any other party to the application is subject to a denial of Federal benefits that includes FCC benefits pursuant to Section 5301 of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, 21 U.S.C. Section 862, because of a conviction for possession or distribution of a controlled substance. The applicant hereby waives any claim to the use of any particular frequency or electromagnetic spectrum as against the regulatory power of the United States because of the prvious use of the same, whether by license or otherwise, and requests authorization in accordance with this application. (See Section 304 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.) The applicant acknowledges that all statements made in this application and attached exhibits are considered material representations, and that all the exhibits part hereof and are incorporated herein as if set out in full in this application; undersigned certifies that all statements in this application are true, complete and correct to the best of his/her knowledge and belief and are made in good faith. Applicant certifies that construction of the station would NOT be an action which is likely to have a significant environmental effect. See the Commission's Rules, 47 CFR1.1301-1.1319.
