(a) * * * (2) For the 5.25–5.35 GHz and 5.47– 5.725 GHz bands, the maximum conducted output power over the frequency bands of operation shall not exceed the lesser of 250 mW or 11 dBm + 10 log B, where B is the 26 dB emission bandwidth in megahertz. * * * * * * * * (h) * * * (2) Radar Detection Function of Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS). U– NII devices operating with any part of its 26 dB emission bandwidth in the 5.25–5.35 GHz and 5.47–5.725 GHz bands shall employ a DFS radar detection mechanism to detect the presence of radar systems and to avoid co-channel operation with radar systems. Operators shall only use equipment with a DFS mechanism that is turned on when operating in these bands. The device must sense for radar signals at 100 percent of its emission bandwidth. The minimum DFS detection threshold for devices with a maximum e.i.r.p. of 200 mW to 1 W is ¥64 dBm. For devices that operate with less than 200 mW e.i.r.p. and a power spectral density of less than 10 dBm in a 1 MHz band, the minimum detection threshold is ¥62 dBm. The detection threshold is the received power averaged over 1 microsecond referenced to a 0 dBi antenna. For the initial channel setting, the manufacturers shall be permitted to provide for either random channel selection or manual channel selection. (i) Operational Modes. The DFS requirement applies to the following operational modes: (A) The requirement for channel availability check time applies in the master operational mode. (B) The requirement for channel move time applies in both the master and slave operational modes. (ii) Channel Availability Check Time. A U–NII device shall check if there is a radar system already operating on the channel before it can initiate a transmission on a channel and when it has to move to a new channel. The U– PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 NII device may start using the channel if no radar signal with a power level greater than the interference threshold values listed in paragraph (h)(2) of this section, is detected within 60 seconds. (iii) Channel Move Time. After a radar’s presence is detected, all transmissions shall cease on the operating channel within 10 seconds. Transmissions during this period shall consist of normal traffic for a maximum of 200 ms after detection of the radar signal. In addition, intermittent management and control signals can be sent during the remaining time to facilitate vacating the operating channel. (iv) Non-occupancy Period. A channel that has been flagged as containing a radar system, either by a channel availability check or in-service monitoring, is subject to a nonoccupancy period of at least 30 minutes. The non-occupancy period starts at the time when the radar system is detected. * * * * * Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H.

Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) Devices in 
the 5 GHz Band

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On May 1, 2014, the Commission released a Report and Order, 
``Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) Devices in the 
5 GHz Band.'' This document contains corrections to the final 
regulations that appeared in the Federal Register on May 1, 2014 (79 FR 
24569).

DATES: Effective September 24, 2014.

and Technology, (202) 418-2406 or email Aole.Wilkins@fcc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The final regulations that are the subject of this correction 
relates to ``Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) 
Devices in the 5 GHz Band'' under Sec.  15.407(a)(2) and (h)(2) of the 
rules.

Need for Correction

    As published, the amendatory instructions in the final regulations 
contain errors that are misleading and need immediate correction.

List of Subjects in 47 CFR Part 15

    Accordingly, 47 CFR part 15 is corrected by making the following 
correcting amendments:

2. Section 15.407 is amended by revising the first sentence of 
paragraph (a)(2) and by revising paragraph (h)(2) to read as follows:


Sec.  15.407  General technical requirements.

    (a) * * *
    (2) For the 5.25-5.35 GHz and 5.47-5.725 GHz bands, the maximum 
conducted output power over the frequency bands of operation shall not 
exceed the lesser of 250 mW or 11 dBm + 10 log B, where B is the 26 dB 
emission bandwidth in megahertz. * * *

    (2) Radar Detection Function of Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS). 
U-NII devices operating with any part of its 26 dB emission bandwidth 
in the 5.25-5.35 GHz and 5.47-5.725 GHz bands shall employ a DFS radar 
detection mechanism to detect the presence of radar systems and to 
avoid co-channel operation with radar systems. Operators shall only use 
equipment with a DFS mechanism that is turned on when operating in 
these bands. The device must sense for radar signals at 100 percent of 
its emission bandwidth. The minimum DFS detection threshold for devices 
with a maximum e.i.r.p. of 200 mW to 1 W is -64 dBm. For devices that 
operate with less than 200 mW e.i.r.p. and a power spectral density of 
less than 10 dBm in a 1 MHz band, the minimum detection threshold is -
62 dBm. The detection threshold is the received power averaged over 1 
microsecond referenced to a 0 dBi antenna. For the initial channel 
setting, the manufacturers shall be permitted to provide for either 
random channel selection or manual channel selection.
    (i) Operational Modes. The DFS requirement applies to the following 
operational modes:
    (A) The requirement for channel availability check time applies in 
the master operational mode.
    (B) The requirement for channel move time applies in both the 
master and slave operational modes.
    (ii) Channel Availability Check Time. A U-NII device shall check if 
there is a radar system already operating on the channel before it can 
initiate a transmission on a channel and when it has to move to a new 
channel. The U-NII device may start using the channel if no radar 
signal with a power level greater than the interference threshold 
values listed in paragraph (h)(2) of this section, is detected within 
60 seconds.
    (iii) Channel Move Time. After a radar's presence is detected, all 
transmissions shall cease on the operating channel within 10 seconds. 
Transmissions during this period shall consist of normal traffic for a 
maximum of 200 ms after detection of the radar signal. In addition, 
intermittent management and control signals can be sent during the 
remaining time to facilitate vacating the operating channel.
    (iv) Non-occupancy Period. A channel that has been flagged as 
containing a radar system, either by a channel availability check or 
in-service monitoring, is subject to a non-occupancy period of at least 
30 minutes. The non-occupancy period starts at the time when the radar 
system is detected.
