Aviat’s new service offering helps you quickly find and address interference issues to protect your network. Aviat’s FAS (Frequency Assurance Software) offers sophisticated, well-tested monitoring and analysis of unlicensed 6 GHz—and can trigger corrective action to protect link stability.
RLAN (Radio Local Area Network), a regulator’s technical term for Wi-Fi, got a new update in 2020, with FCC opening a 1,200 MHz of channel bandwidth between 5.925 GHz and 7.125 GHz. This operation of unlicensed devices across the current 6 GHz band enables the next generation of wireless broadband called Wi-Fi 6E.
As many readers are aware, the FCC issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) regarding RLAN operation within the 6 GHz bands. Over the last two and a half years, the FWCC has dedicated itself to protecting fixed links from t in these bands. Understandably so, this is especially important given the diversity of fixed link users in the 6 GHz bands; among others, utility companies, oil and gas companies, and local government agencies, including those dealing with public safety, have large numbers of 6 GHz links that perform unique and crucial tasks. There are approximately 97,000 fixed links in the 6 GHz bands.
