To the tune of $750k. That’s how much the FCC fined Smart City for jamming wifi hotspots at Smart City operated convention centers.

I’m not talking about jamming to some wifi waves.

It appears that some wireless operators don’t understand the consequences of containing wifi networks. In this episode, I talk about the subject of sending de-auth packets to hotspots, what this means for the wireless industry, and whether or not you should care.

In this episode:

  • Wifi jamming
  • FCC
  • Smart City
  • Wireless Field Day 8
  • Guest post on Cisco blog
