Overview[edit]

1733 Mbps - 4SS 5GHz 802.11ac (80MHz chan.),
867 Mbps - 2SS 5GHz 802.11ac (80MHz chan.),
400 Mbps - 2SS 2.4GHz 802.11n (40MHz chan., 256QAM) = 3000 Mbps class

DFS support was added in an FCC Class II Permissive Change Request on 12/13/2017.

A firmware update is probably needed for early devices.

Qualcomm IPQ4019 & QCA9984 is just a guess based on the specs, for now.
