  • 1.  Missing WLAN Channels in 5 Ghz (Germany/Europe)

    Posted 07-29-2016 07:26
    i wonder why i have not possible WLAN Channels listed in 5 GHz:

    Regulatory Domain: European Union (& Rest of World)
    AP 3705i - Germany - EWC V9.21.10



    Channel 120 - 124 - 128 - 132 - 136 missed!

    Why? If the system uses DFS mechanism than these channels are allowed in Europe / Germany ?
    See here:

    http://www.elektronik-kompendium.de/sites/net/1712061.htm
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels

    Any advices why these channels are not listed ?

    "Please note that not all 5Ghz channels have been certified for use on the 3715, specifically 120-136, 144 -165 are not in use."

    I assume that is valid for the whole AP37xx platform.

    Hi Ronald,
    thanks for that advice - seem to be the same thing on AP3825:



    But here is at least a hint in the datasheet:

    In AP39XX these channels are also not available because of:

    FCC/IC DFS certification in progress

    Hi,
    how is the status of certification process?
    Can the channels made available to Controllers who are operating in Europe?

    Just to know - other vendors like Microtik and Aruba APs support and offer these channels.
