Hello,

I noticed that the Joule is only rated for indoor Wifi use @ 5GHZ. Can you please clarify why there is such a limitation ? Is it only a matter of getting it certified or is there an actual limitation with use outdoors ?

Thanks

Hi Kartik,

 

 

Thank you very much for your patience. The 5 GHz band can be used in European Union countries, for the FCC the indoor use restriction has been removed. The end-user needs to verify that the product can be used before deploying or using the product in the country of use, as other countries have their own requirements.

 

 

Hope you find this information useful.

 

 

Regards,
