Missing WLAN Channels in 5 Ghz (Germany/Europe)


Userlevel 6
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:

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,

Can the channels made available to Controllers who are operating in Europe?
