Any new frequency functionality usually requires updated silicon from the Wi-Fi chipset vendor; such as Qualcomm or Broadcom and is then encompassed in a new hardware product from all Wi-Fi vendors.
Certainly adoption of the 6GHz frequencies (Wi-Fi6E) will require all-new silicon and Access Point platform(s).
As the first vendor to market with a certified Wi-Fi 6 access point; you can be sure that Ruckus will ensure our product portfolio is kept up to date with emerging technologies, such as 6GHz functionality, as and when standards and regulatory bodies provide the framework for interoperability.
Sorry, I perhaps wasn't as clear as I should be! I understand that new hardware will be a requirement for 6GHz (I think this is the WiFI 6E variant).
In my case I have R510 APs- these show additional channels (149, 153, 157, 161) which are "greyed out".
I presume this is because UK licencing restrictions previously didn't allow these channels to be used (they required licecning before this new guidance was issued). These are in the higher end of the existing 5GHz band, not in the new 6GHz band.
These licecning changes should allow me to use those channels- if the hardware supports it. I presume the Ruckus APs do?
