RADWIN Requests Higher Power Limits for P2MP Systems in U-NII-1 and U-NII-3 Bands


The FCC’s Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau has requested comment on RADWIN LTD’s petition for rulemaking asking the Commission to amend Part 15 of its rules to allow higher power operation for P2MP (point-to-multipoint) systems, consistent with P2P (point-to-point) power limits.  Specifically, RADWIN seeks modification of Section 15.407 of the FCC’s rules to permit devices that emit multiple directional beams sequentially in the U-NII-1 (5.15-5.25 GHz) and U-NII-3 (5.725-5.85 GHz) Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) bands to operate at power limits that are allowed for point-to-point systems in those bands.  RADWIN notes that the requested modification is consistent with the Commission’s approach in the 2400-2483.5 MHz band and will increase broadband access, particularly in rural areas.  Comments on RADWIN’s petition are due by July 29, 2018.
