Thomas Gee reports that the middle 5 GHz band can be used outdoors in France: This was much awaited because there is a lot of existing equipment and new interest in directional use of the 5 GHz band for point-to-multipoint links. BelAir, SkyPilot, and Strix, to name three companies, use 5 GHz for their mesh backhaul systems in the U.S. The new rules allow up to 1 watt EIRP (effective output) for the 5.470 to 5.725 GHz range.
