In 2020, a consortium of electric industry associations published a report on the Impact of Proposed Wi-Fi Operations on Microwave Links at 6 GHz. The 6 GHz band of the radio spectrum is widely used by a broad array of industries responsible for critical infrastructure such as electric, gas, and water utilities; railroads; and wireless carriers; as well as by public safety and law enforcement officials. Those industries rely on the 6 GHz band to operate their equipment, and it is their main source of both primary communications, and in-some cases back-up communications, during emergencies and disasters. In support of these efforts, the 6GHZTF is conducting a voluntary survey. The survey purpose is the first attempt to assess penetration of 6 GHz usage or extent of condition related to BPS impacts. Responses are due April 18, 2022.
The NERC Reliability and Security Technical Committee (RSTC) has formed a 6 GHz Task Force (6GHZTF) to evaluate and provide recommendations as follows:
