Fixed Wireless Communications Coalition Webinar – 6GHz Microwave
Jan 16 @ 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM

If your company supports, supplies, operates, or relies on 6 GHz Fixed Service (FS) wireless connections, there’s a proceeding before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) you need to be paying attention to. The FCC’s proposal would permit unlicensed RLANs (think Wi-Fi and other similar devices) to operate in the 6 GHz bands used for FS links. While the proposal contemplates an automatic frequency control (AFC) system that would prevent unlicensed RLANs from operating near FS links on the same frequency as the FS link, the FCC has asked whether there are an circumstances under which RLANs need not be under AFC control. Predictably, RLAN proponents have proposed exceptions that could effectively swallow the rule. What sort of risk is posed to the FS by non-AFC controlled RLANs, and what can the FS industry and its users do to demonstrate critical importance of protecting FS licensees?

To answer these questions, the Fixed Wireless Communications Coalition will present a webinar outlining the potential problems with permitting unlicensed users into the 6 GHz band, the flaws in RLAN proponents’ arguments in support of permitting unlicensed, non-AFC controlled devices in the band, and the issues that remain to be resolved regarding the AFC’s design before unlicensed devices can safely coexist with licensed FS operations in the 6 GHz band. Tune in on Thursday, January 16 from 10:30 – 11:30 AM PT.
