White paper: Wi-Fi 6E/7 – Vertical location service
by NextNav and Bosch Sensortec
Whether at home, in the office, or on the go, we rely on Wi-Fi to connect devices wirelessly in countless places. Wi-Fi 6E/7 has been adopted by many countries to reduce the growing demand for congestion, improve bandwidth and increase speed. Wi-Fi 6E/7 providers are required by FCC regulation FCC-20-51 to report to the AFCs the height above ground of Wi-Fi APs operating at the higher SP power level and in 6 GHz spectrum. For access point installers and system operators, a solution that provides an automated method for recording the vertical location of access points is needed to meet the FCC requirement in a cost-effective manner. One way to address this challenge is to use a barometric pressure-based solution that is able to provide the exact value of the height above the ground for each Wi-Fi AP. Learn more about how our sensing solutions BMP581 and BMP580 can be used for this use case and download the whitepaper presented by NextNav and Bosch Sensortec.
