Apple, Broadcom et al. suggested ¥99 dBm/MHz: Is this level appropriate? If not, what signal level would be appropriate for this purpose? How can a specific signal level be correlated with the current requirement that the client device be under the control of an access point? For example, under such an approach, should the enabling signal level be of such a strength to effectively require that the signal levels between the access point and client device be sufficiently strong to permit bi-directional communications between the client devices and the access point, thereby ensuring that both client devices are sufficiently close to the access point? How frequently should a client device be required to receive an enabling signal to continue transmitting to another client device? 5. If permitted, should the client devices be limited to receiving an enabling signal from the same access point or could client-to-client communications be permitted so long as each client device receives an enabling signal from any authorized access point? Apple, Broadcom et al.’s suggestion would potentially permit two client devices to communicate even if they receive enabling signals from two different access points. For example, client devices in two different buildings receiving enabling signals from different low-power indoor access points could attempt to communicate with each other. Would permitting this to occur increase the potential for the client devices to cause harmful interference to licensed services? How would a requirement for both devices to receive an enabling signal from the same access point be implemented? Or should other configurations be permitted? For example, could a client device controlled by a standard power access point be permitted to communicate with a client device controlled by a lowpower indoor access point? Could client-to-client communications be permitted between devices when both clients are controlled by a standard power access point? If so, are any changes needed to the AFC systems? Must the enabling signal be received on the same channel for each device under any of the scenarios contemplated? Under any envisioned client-to-client communication scenario, commenters should provide detailed descriptions of how such communications can be enabled including how such communications fit under the current rules that limit client devices to operating only under the control of a VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:27 Jan 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 standard power access point or a lowpower indoor access point or whether, and which, rules would need to be modified. Commenters should provide detailed analysis of how any client-toclient communication configurations they prefer would protect incumbent operations from harmful interference. Finally, commenters should provide any other information they believe relevant to evaluating whether direct client-toclient communications consistent with the rationale of the Commission in the 6 GHz Order should be permitted, including any alternative methods or necessary rule changes not directly noted above.
