Unlicensed Wireless

Unlicensed wireless offers end-users the convenience and power of radio communications without the need to obtain frequency licenses. These license-exempt bands include 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. While these bands were initially unlicensed primarily for use by simple consumer electronics (radio controlled cars, microwave ovens, and the like) increasingly they are being used by systems providing basic internet and telecommunication services. FCC rules limit the range and power output of unlicensed wireless radios and the frequencies they operate on are wide open for anyone to use. These issues can be eliminated through FCC licensing.
