connectBlue has expanded the frequency channel range on small embedded wireless LAN OEM modules to cover the 5 GHz channels 36-140 compared to the previously used 36-48 channels.
The extended channel range allows connectBlue products to cover the U-NII-1, U-NII-2 and U-NII-2e bands (5.18-5.70 GHz).
The unlicensed 5GHz band in wireless LAN offers a less crowded radio space than the 2.4GHz band where several other wireless technologies also operate.
The 5GHz band makes available 16 more non-overlapping channels than what is available in the 2.4GHz band, opening up the possibility for interference-free and stable wireless communication.
