FCC Adopts Rules for Unlicensed Use of the 6 GHz Band

FCC publishes new rules in the Federal Register designed to optimize unlicensed access by authorizing two types of unlicensed operations in the 6 GHz band.

The Commission is authorizing standard-power access points that operate under the control of an automated frequency coordination system in portions of the 6 GHz band, additionally opening the entire 6 GHz band for unlicensed indoor low power access points. The Commission will also permit unlicensed client devices to communicate with both the standard-power and low-power access points. These new rules provide use of up to 320-megahertz channels to expand capacity and increase performance.

These new rules have an effective date of July 27, 2020.
