Will 5.9GHz spectrum for 5GHz Wi-Fi be added via firmware for existing WAX 510D, WAX 610D, WAX650S or other 5GHz products?  The FCC approved this November 18, 2020 after several years of discussions: https://www.fcc.gov/document/fcc-modernizes-59-ghz-band-improve-wi-fi-and-automotive-safety.  If nothing else hopefully if will be added to Wi-Fi 6E products.  5.9GHz will increase the number of 160MHz channels in the 5GHz band in the United States.

    Hi @dkyeager ,

    We won't add 5.9GHz DSRC spectrum in those AP via firmware upgrade. Those APs already support DFS channel in US. AP provides 6x 80MHz or 2x 160MHz non overlapping channel for users. 
    For the WiFi6E products, we'll put your suggestion to the feature queue.
    Thanks.
