5150-5250 MHz (Indoor, 200 mW)
Operation of wireless network equipment on the Australian 5 GHz band is governed by Section 61 of the Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence 2015, which was last updated August 2019.
LIPD Class 2000 legislation permits the operation of RLAN transmitters between the range of 5150 to 5250 MHz, provided they operate under the conditions outlined below.
- The transmitter must have a maximum EIRP of 200 milliWatt.
- The transmitter must only be used indoors.
- The power spectral density of a transmitter with a bandwidth greater than or equal to 1 MHz must not exceed 10 mW EIRP per MHz.
- The power spectral density of a transmitter with a bandwidth less than 1 MHz must not exceed 40 µW EIRP per 4 kHz.
