Radiolinks in the 71-76 GHz, 81-86 GHz, and 92-95 GHz (70/80/90 GHz) bands allow for small antenna diameters, usually 1-2 feet. For these bands, such antennas provide high directivity and high gain.

A direct consequence of this high directivity antennas combined with the free space losses calculated by the link budget calculator at these frequencies is the ability to use the spectrum for multiple point-to-point radio links operating near each other.

Because many high directivity antennas can be placed in the same area, the result is more efficient spectrum reuse and higher link density. Moreover, because the links allow 10 Gbps or more of data to be transmitted, this spectrum can be used as a replacement or supplement to fiber in urban areas, industrial hubs and as a wireless transport network for deployment of 4G/5G base stations.

On October 16, 2003, the FCC adopted service rules to facilitate the development and use by non-federal governments of “millimeter wave” spectrum in the 70/80/90 GHz bands on a shared basis with federal government operations. The Commission adopted flexible rules for registering radio links for the 70/80/90 GHz bands, allowing for the registration of links with third-party database management operators after the Commission issues a geographic nationwide license.
