The executive lied.  That's the Ubiquiti market strategy. They tell lies
until they are pushed into a corner.  Then they become silent.  Until
the next person starts asking.  Then the same lies are repeated.  This
story can obviously be repeated again and again.

You should google before repeating such nonsense in public. Notice the
date of that document?  The FCC has clarified their position multiple
times since then, and even published updated revisions of those
requirements.  See for example:.

Feel free to forward this back to your executive contact.  But please be
aware that he already knew all this.  And he probably has a followup lie
for you.  Please google it this time...
