Commissioner Pai suggests only 45 MHz of the 75 MHz total be dedicated to Wi-Fi. While it’s as yet uncertain exactly which rules this added spectrum would follow, he did state it would be contiguous to the existing 5.8 GHz spectrum, meaning 5850 to 5895 MHz. If the FCC decides to follow the same rules as the existing 5.8 GHz band, this would be very advantageous for fixed wireless deployments.
For existing Cambium Networks customers using either ePMP or PMP 450, this is very welcome news. These products were already designed to support frequencies higher for regulatory regions outside the United States. Therefore, they support these frequencies with optimal performance, and will only require a software update in order to take advantage of these frequencies, which are not currently being used by anyone.
