The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has conditionally approved 13 proposed automated frequency coordination (AFC) systems to manage spectrum access for unlicensed devices in the 6GHz band. The aim is to prevent new Wi-Fi kit from interfering with existing users in the stated space.
Conditional approval means that the 13 companies will be able to "finalize development for operations in the 6 GHz band and prepare for the testing phase," the FCC said in a press release.
The 13 organizations granted conditional approval include: Broadcom; Google; Comsearch; Sony Group; Kyrio; Key Bridge Wireless; Nokia Innovations; Federated Wireless; Wireless Broadband Alliance; Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA); Qualcomm; Plume Design; and RED Technologies. These were detailed in a public notice.
The 6 GHz band is an important one for FWA providers because it includes a 1,200 MHz swath of spectrum with 160 MHz channels that can support speeds of 1 Gbps, according to companies that have used the bands on an experimental basis.
