Commission modifies Part 15 rules for wireless services

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has modified its rules applicable to unlicensed communications equipment operating in the 57-64 GHz band.

In a Report and Order issued in August 2013, the Commission increased the power limits for outdoor directional antennas operating between fixed points. In order to avoid potential interference to other users, the rule changes have also tied the maximum permitted power to the precision of an antenna’s beam.

According to the Commission, these changes will permit outdoor transmission devices to provide high-capacity communication links over distances as great as one mile and at data rates of 7 GB per second, thereby enhancing the utility of broadband devices operating in the 57-64 GHz band. The changes will also broaden the use of unlicensed spectrum as a relatively low-cost, high-capacity short-range signal backhaul alternative for wireless broadband networks.
