In the Federal Register Vol 79, No.84 of May 01, 2014, FCC has announced that Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) for the 5 GHz band would undergo some changes starting June 2nd, 2014. This change eliminates a loophole where a device could be certified under 15.247 but then illegally modified to operate in the U-NII DFS bands which interfered with Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR).

Think back to the year 1999. The world was anticipating the new millennium, the financial industry was highly focused on “the Y2K bug”, and the Internet was entering its next phase of connectivity.
IEEE 802.11b was introduced in September 1999. Boasting transfer speeds of up to 11 Mbps, this was the first widely adopted WLAN standard.
And it changed the world.
Silex has a rich history of partnership with Canon. We have been providing Canon compatible document imaging connectivity solutions for decades to enhance the networking and wireless capabilities of Canon Printers, Multifunction Printers, and Scanners.
Today, we launched the ability for customers to be able to easily download our SX-Virtual Link SDK for Windows for free. This is very exciting as we have been offering this product to customers at a price, and now one of the barriers to proliferation of our technology has been removed. Now I am interested to see what kinds of applications our customers come up with for this technology.
Silex has had customers reporting a couple of issues with using and enabling of the WiFi interface on the Yocto Linux version 1.6 (Daisy) using Kernel version 3.10.17. We have helped some of our customers by providing work around to get the Wi-Fi interface up in the Yocto environment.
