5650–5725 MHz (1 W, DFS)

Wireless Band

Operation of wireless network equipment on this Australian 5 GHz band is governed by Section 63 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 5650 to 5725 MHz, provided they operate under the conditions outlined below.


  • The transmitter must have a maximum EIRP of 1 Watt.
  • The transmitter must use Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS).
  • If the maximum EIRP is greater than 500 mW, the transmitter must use Transmit Power Control (TPC).
  • The maximum radiated mean power density must not exceed 50 mW/MHz EIRP in any 1 MHz band.
