Operation of wireless network equipment on this Australian 5 GHz band is governed by Section 63 of the Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence 2015. As this frequency range may also be used by military and weather radar, additional conditions are imposed to ensure interference-free operation.

LIPD Class 2000 legislation permits the operation of RLAN transmitters between the range of 5470 to 5600 MHz, provided they operate under the conditions outlined below.
