FCC authorises first LTE-U devices for 5 GHz band

Thursday 23 February 2017 | 08:21 CET | News
The FCC has authorised the first devices for LTE in the unlicensed 5 GHz band. The US regulator's Office of Engineering and Technology authorized use of such devices after agreeing with industry terms for limiting interference on Wi-Fi services using the same band. LTE-U and Wi-Fi stakeholders worked under the auspices of the Wi-Fi Alliance to develop co-existence guidelines and an evaluation test plan that was released last autumn. In addition to meeting the FCC's radio rules, the LTE-U devices also were evaluated successfully under the co-existence test plan.
