overview of regulatory activity involving 802.11, discussed November 13
mentor.ieee.org

In China, the MIIT Radio Regulation Bureau (also known as the State Radio Regulatory Committee, or SRRC) began writing technical parameters/tests for use of three critical bands of 5 GHz spectrum in China.

• Spectrum bands 5150 - 5250 MHz, 5250 - 5350 MHz and 5470 - 5725 MHz will be allocated for unlicensed use for wireless communication equipment in China within specified technical parameters. No specific radio frequency approval will be necessary for devices operating in these three frequencies.

• Spectrum bands 5150 - 5250 MHz and 5250 - 5350 MHz will be unlicensed only for indoor use.

• Devices operating in 5250 - 5350 MHz and 5470 - 5725 MHz will be required to use DFS/TPC functionality.

OFCOM, CEPT and ETSI continue to develop the Harmonized Standard for Operation in TV white spaces EN 301 598 v0.0.11, and OFCOM opened their white spaces consultation
