Anyone Working With 802.11ah - 915 MHz Band ???
I've read that Android phones may be unlocked, to use the 915 MHz unlicensed band, in the U.S.A. - ITU Region 2.
Of course, better yet, would be Replicant, or OpenMoko, on a GTA04 / GTA05!
But, I'm writing, here, about the pfSense box, side of the equation…
There is a Youtube video:

CEVA and Antcor are delivering the first-to-market 802.11ah IP solution. As with all their solutions, the platform is programmable and easily upgradable as the standard evolves.
This looks like it might be a SDR (Software Defined Radio) solution...
It would be best to have a Mini PCI solution, and use an adapter card, on different pfSense hardware platforms.
One key advantage of the 915 MHz band, is RANGE! More distance, much like the new 802.22 "Whitespace" bands.
With FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum), for example, there's a low chance of interference.
