OFCA in Hong Kong has adopted rules to allow WLAN devices to use part of the 6 GHz spectrum. It has published a new Class License and technical standard HKCA 1081 that will allow operation in the 5925-6425 MHz band:
- Indoor operation with power up to 24 dBm EIRP
- Outdoor operation with power up to 14 dBm EIRP
Products are expected to comply with EN 303 687 requirements but are allowed to deviate from EU requirements for indoor devices:
- Power output limit is increased by 1 dBm to 24 dBm EIRP
- PSD increased to 11 dBm/MHz (from 10 dBm/MHz)
While approval of client devices using the 6 GHz band would continue to be voluntary, it is expected that 6 GHz capable Access Points will fall into the compulsory certification scheme and be subject to labelling requirements.
