RF Elements Has Horn Antennas Ready for the New Unlicensed 6 GHz BandRFecho
Leader in sustainable use of unlicensed spectrum, RF Elements has welcomed the move by the FCC to open up 1200 MHz of spectrum between 5.9725 and 7.125 GHz for unlicensed use. They termed it as a remarkable move and the industry sorely needed the additional spectrum to address the growing demand for internet connectivity.
The additional spectrum will considerably broaden the options WISPs have for providing the US citizens with high-speed internet access. RF elements will further support this effort by developing more products aligned with effective and sustainable use of the newly assigned spectrum.
RF Elements Symmetrical Horn antennas already work in the U-NII-5 band up to 6.425 GHz. The set of seven antennas with different beam widths for sector coverage and UltraHorn for point to point or narrow sector coverage are the epitome of sustainable growth of unlicensed networks. Its horn antenna technology provides a highly effective solution to problems with interference widely experienced by Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs). American WISPs heavily rely on the unlicensed spectra to provide internet connectivity to American consumers in rural and under-served communities.
According to Juraj Taptic, CEO of RF Elements, New rules adopted by FCC open U-NII-5 and U-NII-7 bands for outdoor use as Standard-Power Access Point and Client Devices They are committed to provide the industry leading antennas in the newly opened U-NII-5 and U-NII-7 bands. Their goal is to prevent the industry from falling into the same severe problems with noise it experienced in the 5 GHz band. Their technology is perfectly geared towards this goal and they already have tens of thousands of well performing installations in the 5 GHz band across the US and the rest of the world to prove this.
