802.11h

802.11h

Extensions to the physical layer of 802.11 for regulatory compliance in Europe in the 5 GHz band (802.11a). To coexist with signals from licensed carriers, 802.11h adds Transmit Power Control (TPC) and Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS). These functions enable 802.11 devices to "listen" before transmitting so that they can adjust their power and change channels as required.

Amp'ed RF Wi-Fi IC (ACC1340) unlocks 802.11h DFS through hardware and embedded software.
It supports the latest 802.11e EDCA standards to ensure seamless video streaming and VoIP services and includes 802.11h Spectrum and Transmit Power Management for improved BER and 802.11k and 11r Radio Resource Measurement/Management.
We are proud to be enabling this wireless ecosystem by supporting the Wi-Fi Direct standard in our Avastar family and by working with device manufacturers to help them deliver a new generation of mobile devices to consumers worldwide." Key features of Marvell's Avastar 88W8787 includes: support up to 150Mbps bit rate over the air with 40 MHz channels in both bands, best-in-class leakage current with up to 4x lower than existing solutions and 802.11h Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) for detecting radar pulses when operating in the 5 GHz range.

* Standard-based: Support for 802.11 a/b/g and emerging 802.11i and worldwide 802.11h standard
With bursting, 802.11g clients send several 54-Mbps packets in succession-in about the time it takes an 802.11h client to send one 11-Mbps packet.
Designed primarily for 802.11h transmission in the 2.4 GHz unlicensed ISM band, this lightweight, highly linear amplifier module has a minimum small signal gain of 34 dB and 1.5W of linear output power Running from a single DC voltage of 13V, and able to withstand input overdrive of 20 dBm (the maximum output of most laboratory signal generators), this robust module has dimensions of 3" x 2.2" x 0.6".
* decide on a potential upgrade from lower-speed 802.11h to 802.11a or 802.11g networks.
