Further Notice on 6 GHz Released

As anticipated, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has released a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and intends to adopt rules permitting unlicensed operations in the 6 GHz band at its April 23 meeting. The FCC will adopt a Report & Order that will permit two types of unlicensed operations tailored to protect incumbent services that operate in distinct parts of the 6 GHz band; and, will issue a Further Notice of Proposed Rule Making that will propose to permit unlicensed devices to operate both indoors and outdoors across the entire 6 GHz band at very low power.  A considerable number of filings have been submitted to the FCC in this proceeding stating that interference is inevitable, and many other filings have argued the interference, if any, will be minimal. What we do know is that the FCC is committed to make this band available for unlicensed devices.
