Wi-Fi NOW Official Announcement – for immediate release:
We’re delighted to announce that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has accepted our invitation to speak at the Wi-Fi World Congress USA 2019 otherwise known as Wi-Fi NOW USA on May 14-16. Chairman Pai will be speaking at approximately 1.30 pm on Tuesday May 14.
Since mid last year Chairman Pai has been lauded by the Wi-Fi industry for spearheading a regulatory move to free up the 6 GHz band for unlicensed use, a ruling that would more than double current Wi-Fi operating bands. The release of the 6 GHz band to Wi-Fi could happen as early as next year.
Said our Chairman and CEO Claus Hetting about the emerging 6 GHz opportunity in Wi-Fi:“This is without a doubt the single biggest opportunity in Wi-Fi – and probably in wireless – in a generation. A 6 GHz ruling would set free vast spectrum resources for Wi-Fi, benefitting consumers and businesses immeasurably for the next several decades. Wi-Fi will truly become the wireless technology that catapults the US and global Internet economy to the next level. We’re indebted to Chairman Pai for his visionary work on 6 GHz Wi-Fi.”
