I wonder if anyone could assist me with my question.
I have been researching the use of the two unlicensed spectrums in the UK. These are 2.4 and 5 GHz.
Within the 5 GHz spectrum there are 3 bands, the lower two, (A,B) have been designated licence exempt.
The two bands are:
Freq Range Service Max EIRP Addit. req's
A: 5150-5350 Mhz mobile, indoor only 200 mW DFS, TPC
B: 5470-5725 Mhz Mobile, outdoor 1W DFS, TPC
Having taken a look at the Aironet 1200 AP Datasheets and the frequencies for 5 Ghz ( 5.15 to 5.35 GHz (FCC UNII 1 and UNII 2) I can see that only band A is supported. Band A has been specified for indoor use.
Is there any planned support for the 5470-5725 mhz band?
Also, do the Aironet's support Dynamic Frequency selection (DFS) which will be a requirement in the UK in areas of dense spectrum usage.
Does anyone know of any 802.11a implementations in the UK? How did they get around this issue.
Many thanks for any assistance anyone may be able to offer.
