Federal Register: FCC opens up the 5.9 GHz band for Wi-Fi and auto safety application

  FCC released the latest rule of opening up 5.9 GHz Band spectrum for Wi-Fi devices on Federal Register, adopted rules to repurpose 45 megahertz of spectrum in the 5.850-5.895 GHz band for unlicensed use and allow immediate access for unlicensed indoor operations across the 5.850-5.895 GHz band. In order to meet the requirements of indoor equipment, the FCC requires such equipment not to have weatherized enclosure, not battery powered, must have an integrated antenna, and must have a clear label indicating that it can only be used indoors. This rule is effective on July 2, 2021.

This frequency band can transmit up to 36 dBm EIRP with 160 MHz bandwidth, plus DFS functionality is not needed. It’s one and only 160MHz in 5GHz band without DFS requirement, that’s why it’s so important. Due to the above characteristics. This band is likely to become the most promising backhaul of P2P and mesh networks.

Sporton is well-prepared to test the 5.9GHz equipment due to cooperating with chipset vendors and have experiences on pretest period. We successfully help our customers to obtain certificates in the shortest time.
