The commercial wireless companies, through a lot of legal and lobbying muscle, persuaded many at the FCC to reduce the size of the ITFS band and reallocate the reclaimed spectrum through auctions for new services.

This new view in Spectrum Analyzer better organizes findings to make it much easier for users to immediately identify problems and instantly distinguish Wi-Fi devices from non-Wi-Fi devices.
Spectrum Analyzer, which already identified more devices than any other product in the category, now identifies 15 new devices and interference sources, including 50 Hz microwave ovens, European Bluetooth devices and devices using FSK, OFDM, QAM, FM, CW and other common modulation protocols.
This makes managing these networks and devices challenging for wireless IT managers as they operate in the most difficult spectrum to control -- the unlicensed spectrum, where these networks must compete for resources with other devices that use these frequencies.
In both cases, Spectrum Expert solves these problems by enabling wireless IT manager to identify and locate interfering devices quickly before they can bring down or impact the network.
