  6 GHz band for unlicensed use
    Because of the explosive demand for unlicensed spectrum, FCC plans to open 6 GHz band for unlicensed use while protecting incumbent users through automated frequency control (AFC) system

Incumbents Services in the 6 GHz Band: assignment density

FCC now seeks comments from all of the chipset vendors, incumbent users, carriers, equipment vendors, etc.  In the near future, there will be 4 sub-bands: U-NII-5, U-NII-6, U-NII-7, U-NII-8, for unlicensed use.

In the 5.925–6.425 GHz and 6.525–6.875 GHz sub-bands the proposed rules will allow unlicensed access points to operate only on frequencies determined by an AFC system. And higher power can be used in these sub-bands than the others.

According to the article from FCC, it might use the AFC system which are similar to CBRS Spectrum Access System (SAS) , Sporton is very familiar with SAS test and is qualified as the WInnForum CBRS accredited laboratory and the CBRS Alliance Authorized Testing Laboratory (ATL) since June 2, 2018.
