Public Safety WI-FI 4.9 Ghz Licenses
I wanted to make everyone aware of the new 4.9 GHz licenses that the FCC has made available. This is used like the unlicensed 802.11b,g, etc, for the wireless internet and point to point communications. The difference is this is licensed only to public safety. The idea is that there won't be any interference from the public unlicensed stuff and more secure because only public safety will have access to it. There are 18 channels and one license includes all 18 which totals up to 50 MHz. There is no construction deadline to build and the license is good for 10 years. To check out more on the subject go to www.publicsafetycommunications.org/Wi-Fi.php and goto presentations.
I think we will license it up for our fire district. Once the hardware is out we will set up an internet "Hotspot" around our fire department. We are in a rural area and other public agencies (Sheriff, Forestry, other Fire Departments)will be able to access the internet when passing through the area. Is anyone else thinking about the protential uses?
Can Someone please translate this thread into English?:eek:
