Environment : This article applies to Aruba Airmesh routers.


In 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) allocated 50 MHz of spectrum in the 4.9 GHz band to public safety services. The 4.9 GHz band comprises 50 MHz of spectrum from 4.940 GHz to 4.990 GHz.

State and local government entities in the United States are eligible for the licenses. In addition, certain critical infrastructure providers may qualify. Use of the band is open to voice, data and video communications and must be related to the protection of life, health and property. The primary uses of this band are:
