Powering Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7, and 5G NR-U technologies
Building on the success of automated spectrum sharing in the 3.5 GHz CBRS band, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) conditionally approved Automated Frequency Coordination (AFC) systems to manage access to the 6 GHz band by license-exempt devices. AFC systems allow standard power Wi-Fi 6E and 5G NR-U devices to transmit at up to 63 times higher power, while avoiding interference with incumbent users in the band. The increased range, faster speeds, and improved capacity of license-exempt device operations using Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7, and 5G NR-U technologies will power enterprise-level digital transformation across a broad range of use cases.
Enabling Wi-Fi 6E
Federated Wireless is an early-to-market partner with leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to enable a faster time-to-market for innovative new applications, devices, and services.
Global Regulatory Momentum
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission conditionally approved Automated Frequency Coordination (AFC) systems for managing access to the 6 GHz band for Standard Power devices and is working with the industry for Certification of Equipment and AFC Systems. Canada is very close behind the United States in authorizing commercial AFC system operations.
Enabling standard power and outdoor access to 6 GHz spectrum, via AFC system management, is critical to ensuring that Wi-Fi is part of the growing momentum in private wireless adoption and automation across various industries and domains.
