However, key performance indicators (KPIs) vary according to the use case that the device is meant to perform under. These KPIs can be challenging to assess due to the complexity of deployment scenarios.
by Dean BubleyOne of the most contentious areas of current wireless spectrum policy relates to the 6 Gigahertz (GHz) band, which spans the 1200 Megahertz (MHz) range from 5.925 to 7.125 GHz. In some areas of the world, the band is considered in two sections: the lower part from 5.925 to 6.425 GHz and the upper part from 6.425 to 7.125 GHz.
