Australia ACMA plans to open the 5.6 GHz band for general access

Australia ACMA is currently consulting on changes to existing policies in the 5.6 GHz band to support general access for point-to-multipoint (PMP)* licensing.


ACMA is seeking feedback from interested stakeholders by 31 July 2020 on the proposed changes. Any information you provide will assist us in determining the best way forward.


* What is point-to-multipoint: In telecommunications, point-to-multipoint communication (P2MP, PTMP or PMP) is communication which is accomplished via a distinct type of one-to-many connection, providing multiple paths from a single location to multiple locations.


Point-to-multipoint telecommunications is typically used in wireless Internet and IP telephony via gigahertz radio frequencies. P2MP systems have been designed with and without a return channel from the multiple receivers. A central antenna or antenna array broadcasts to several receiving antennas and the system uses a form of time-division multiplexing to allow for the return channel traffic.
