5Ghz UNII-3 band C in UK

Do you know when there will be an update to the DRT to allow 5Ghz UNII-3 band C (5735-5850Ghz) now that it became legal in the UK on 7 Aug 2017?

I just applied the latest DRT:

  Regulatory Version :1.0_62141

 

But I still don't see channels 144, 149, 153, 157, 161 and 165

Re: 5Ghz UNII-3 band C in UK

We're aware of this and have taken action to add support for these channels on selected indoor AP models.

Obtaining certs will require SW changes (DFS), testing, etc., and is not free.

Assuming we can get our AP platforms to pass the requirements, we'll add support as we obtain certs. There is no confirmed schedule for this currently.
