Automated Frequency Coordination (AFC) for Wi-Fi 6E in Action

Aruba and our AFC system partner, Federated Wireless, performed the world’s first end-to-end demonstration of 6 GHz Standard Power in Saudi Arabia in August. In this video, we show how this joint solution coordinates spectrum access and protects incumbents in the 6 GHz band while enabling Aruba Wi-Fi 6E APs to operate outdoors, at higher powers, and with connectorized antennas. We review the interactions between Federated Wireless’s AFC, Aruba Central, and the Aruba AP-655s . Although Wi-Fi 6E Low Power Indoors (LPI) is already delivering tremendous value, AFC and Standard Power (SP) will complete the full range of Enterprise Wi-Fi use cases in 6 GHz.
