This is probably a dumb question, but.... Is our 60Ghz spectrum available?
Knowing ICASA and SA we probably don't have enough spectrum or there will be some other old legacy restriction. :mad:

To improve the Ping Pong skills of it's members.

What I dont understand is that they reject working technologies for no goddamn reason. I think they just draw a card from a deck and if its between 1-9 they reject it.

No. Neither 60 GHz (V-band) nor 80 GHz (E-band) is really available. Their use is not prohibited, but the pricing falls under the same model as for the rest of the band - i.e. you per for the channel size you use. In a rural area a 28 MHz channel link (PtP) will cost you ~R800 per year, depending on the rest of the variables. I'm not sure what channel size Samsung used here, but commercial E-band links typically use 500 MHz / 1 GHz channels. Since under the ICASA model cost is a direct factor of channel size, a rural 500 MHz channel size link will cost you roughly R14k per year. To the best of my knowledge ICASA doesn't make any provision for IMS bands in either the V-band or the E-band.

Example? Normally technologies are rejected by the providers. ICASA manages the spectrum, not really the technologies.
