Acconeer has agreed with three large global tech companies about a joint proposal to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for new regulations of the 60GHz frequency band in the US. The proposal makes it possible for Acconeer's and other mmWave radar technologies to co-exist with WiGig in the 60GHz band. The submitted proposal can be read at FCC's website.
WiGig, also known as 60 GHz Wi-Fi, is a communication protocol that shares the same unlicensed frequency band as Acconeer's Pulsed Coherent Radar as well as other mmWave technologies. The FCC is currently working on new regulations for the 60GHz frequency band, which will be important for Acconeer's activities on the American market and open up for new innovative applications. With new regulations in place, future certifications will also be less complicated and time-consuming for customers.
CEO Lars Lindell comments: "We see this agreement with the WiGig companies about a co-existence proposal as an important step towards US regulation that is beneficial for Acconeer, our customers, and the American public."
