1.3 Describe wireless regulatory bodies, standards, and certifications
U-NII-1 (Band 1): 5.15 to 5.25 GHz
U-NII-2 (Band 2): 5.25 to 5.35 GHz
U-NII-2 Extended (Band 3): 5.47 to 5.725 GHz
U-NII-3 (Band 4): 5.725 to 5.825 GHz (also allocated as ISM)
Other countries have different regulatory bodies.
The bands allocated by ETSI are similar to the bands allocated by FCC however U-NII-3 is not available as it is a licenced spectrum.
The most relevant IEE defined protocols in relation to wireless is 802.11 (Wireless LANs) and 802.15 (Personal area networks such as Bluetooth and Zigbee).
A thorough understanding of 802.3 (Ethernet) is also required.
