FCC 70 80 90 GHz Link Registration
This site has been designated by the Federal Communications
Commission as an official site for registering microwave links in the 71-76, 81-86
and 92-95 GHz bands.
Contact us if you would like us to perform this step for you. Once you have obtained
this license from the FCC, you will be able to register any number of links throughout
the United States.
About this Frequency Band
On October 16, 2003, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
established rules to allow use of this millimeter wave spectrum by both federal
and non-federal users. This band is ideal for very high capacity data traffic
between two points up to about a mile apart (or more depending on reliability considerations). The
very narrow beams at this frequency mean an almost unlimited number of links can
coexist in the same geographic area. The biggest advantage is that with 13,000
MHz of spectrum, links can operate at multiple gigabits per second data rates which
is comparable to fiber optic speeds.
The rules for this band allow a company or other entity to operate
any number of point-to-point microwave links/paths by obtaining one nationwide
call sign from the FCC. Once this is done, a new link can be added by simply
registering the link information through Micronet's Link registration web site.
