In Canada, ISED (previously Industry Canada) is in charge of regulating frequencies. The information you will find in this blog article are coming from the following document published by ISED called RSS-210 — Licence-Exempt Radio Apparatus: Category I Equipment.
The section we are interested in today is called Annex J — Devices Operating in the Band 57-64 GHz.
- 1st channel: from 57.24 GHz to 59.40 GHz
- 2nd channel: from 59.40 GHz to 61.56 GHz
- 3rd channel: from 61.56 GHz to 63.72 GHz
- Output power: max. 500 mW
- Average EIRP: max. 40 dBm (10 W)
- Peak EIRP: max. 43 dBm (20 W)
The regulations for outdoor devices are more complicated and you can find them under section J.2.2. However, I believe that most of the 802.11ad and 802.11ay products will be intended to be used indoor.
