Last Friday, the FCC chairman announced a bunch of new spectrum. I blogged about it here: http://blogs.aerohive.com/blog/the-wi.... It's a big deal because it might increase the available Wi-Fi capacity by 60%.

My blog post only scratches the surface. What else would you like to know about the announcement? Leave a comment either here or over at the blog post, and I'll do my best to track down answers.

Matthew,

I think the main question would be :

Do we need new AP's?

My guess is yes and the same will count for the clients I think.

Ronald - that depends on what the FCC test procedures are like. If they are able to re-use a lot of the existing DFS testing procedures, it may only be a software update. I'll dig into this and try to write a follow-up post!
