6 GHz Order Effective July 27

The FCC has adopted a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking authorizing standard-power and indoor low-power unlicensed operations in the 6 GHz band which will become effective on July 27. In a communication sent last week, EWA reminded its members that the license data as recorded in the ULS will be the data source for interference protection from the automated frequency coordination (AFC) systems that determine frequency availability. Operations outside of licensed parameters will not receive incumbent interference protection.  

The Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeks comment on a proposal to permit very low power devices to operate across the 6 GHz band to support high data rate applications including high-performance, wearable, augmented-reality, and virtual-reality devices. The notice also seeks comment on increasing the power at which low-power indoor access points may operate. EWA anticipates participating in this phase of the proceeding.
