The FCC is set to issue its decision on sharing the FCC Part 101 point-to-point microwave frequency bands at 6 GHz with unlicensed devices. UTC started a project to create a working group to address this matter.The purpose of the group is to provide a resource for UTC members potentially impacted by the FCC Rule Making. The focus of the group is around specific industry-related issues, which include issues related to operational aspects (interference) and regulatory aspects of this action.
The Report and Order encourages industry to convene a group of stakeholders to collectively and regularly address issues related to 6 GHz operations and new deployment, such as
- Interference detection and mitigation,
- Best practices for members impacted
- AFC system and standard power access point security measures,
- AFC system testing and certification procedures and ensuring that AFC systems contain complete and up-to-date incumbent data.
