5ghz UNII 3 Europe (sweden)

Hi!

 

I´m having trouble finding out what channels are allowed in sweden for 5ghz. This link seems to indicate that UNII 3 channels are allowed outside http://www.nowire.se/kanaler-och-frekvenser-for-5-ghz/

(sorry its in swedish but I guess you get most of it).

 

But I´m having trouble finding official information for this. Is there any central Europe list of channels per country or such ? Would be awesome to know when deploying in other countries.

 

The main reason I´m asking right now is because I was troubleshooting a outdoor mesh of IAP-367 and no UNII 3 channels were listed! And the cluster was set to regulatory domain sweden.

This matches the AP-275 so it looks like there's no UNI3 support. It also appears that Sweeded follows the ETSI governing body for WiFi which prohibits the use of UNI3

I will ping our regulatory folks for confirmation though.

Re: 5ghz UNII 3 Europe (sweden)

Ok, would be great if you could get that comfirmation.

 

Also as a sidenote to this:

From what I understand I cannot use 2,4ghz for mesh running instant ?

Can I setup mesh with 2,4ghz running controller based arubaos ?

Re: 5ghz UNII 3 Europe (sweden)

So in discussing with PLM and our Regulatory Director, Sweden is currently part of ETSI which disallows UNI3. We would have to undertake separate Sweden-specific regulatory testing to enable UNI3, which is limited to 14dBm. We are going to be starting this over the next few months (this will not be a fast process), but the low power effectively limits UNI3 use to indoors, and close-range outdoor (little mesh useability due to the low power). 

 

Right now, UNI3 is not allowed on our products in Sweden. Keep an eye out for release note updates if/when we add that support for UNI3.
