Back in April we reported on the adoption of new rules intended to beef up Wi-Fi operations across the country. All but one of those rules took effect in early June. The lone exception? Section 15.407(j), which had to be vetted by the Office of Management and Budget because it involves “information collections” that bring the hilariously-named Paperwork Reduction Act into play. According to a notice in the Federal Register, OMB signed off on that section late last month and now, thanks to that notice, Section 15.407(j) has taken effect as of September 24, 2014.
The newly effective rule requires people who deploy more than a thousand outdoor access points in the 5.15-5.25 GHz band to submit a letter to the FCC acknowledging they will have to take corrective action if they cause harmful interference to licensed services. Details are here.
