ISM Band

ISM Band
or ISM Frequencies, Industrial, Scientific and Medical Band, a group of radio frequencies within several different ITU bands (HF, UHF, VHF, EHF, see Fig. 8: ITU Radio Bands) that were originally reserved for purposes other than communications (including microwave ovens). Some of these bands are now shared with communications equipment based on the understanding that communications gear must accept any interference generated by other ISM equipment.
