Hello everyone!
This is a post for Ruckus mainly.
The rules for Ukraine regulatory domain in 5 GHz 802.11ac are not equal to our regulatory law and channel plans! 
This is a very big issue, our client, national telecom operator install and operate use APs legally and take advantage of 802.11ac performance.
Now, in vSZ-H with selecting Ukraine as a regulatory domain 802.11ac performance is turned off. Only 20/40 MHz channels with 64 QAM are available.

Here is the info about allowed channels and channel width in Ukraine for 802.11ac according to UNII-1, UNII-2, UNII-3: 
20 Mhz Channels: 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 100, 104, 108, 112, 116, 120, 124, 128, 132, 149, 153, 157, 161, 165 
40 Mhz Channels: 38, 46, 54, 62, 102, 110, 118, 126, 151, 159 
80 Mhz Channels: 42, 58, 106, 122, 155 
160 Mhz Channel: 50, 114 
Allowed modulations: 
BPSK, QPSK, 16QAM, 64QAM, 256QAM
EIRP = 100mW
Indoor use only

Can someone make an urgent update to the vSZ-H or can we make it by ourselves with some script?

A little update:
I have tested 2 different versions of vSZ-H:
1. Production controller at provider side

Controller Version
3.2.1.0.253
AP Firmware Version
3.2.1.0.695

2. Test controller at office lab:

Controller Version
3.4.1.0.208
AP Firmware Version
3.4.1.0.329

The results are the same for Ukraine reg domain.

Hello,

Ukraine’s 5.6GHz band is limited.  It is...

5470-5670 MHz, 100mW.

So it looks like you can do the Channel 114 for 160 MHz and Channels 106 and 122 for 80MHz.  But we cannot do Channel 138 for 80MHz.

Michael, above is my translation of NATIONAL COMMISSION FOR THE STATE REGULATION OF COMMUNICATIONS AND INFORMATIZATION decision dated 20 oct. 2015. It is official and telecom providers have operate according to this document.
According to this document, the allowed frequincies are:
5150-5350

5470-5670

5725-5850

But any of Ruckus controllers or even standalone firmwares cannot work in 80 MHz with Ukrainian reg. domain. And vSZ does not allow 802.11ac for Ukraine. So, all Ruckus ac access points are useless and operate in 802.11n. We cannot build our wireless networks legally because the preset channel plan is not equal to real legal channel plan.

Dear Michael!
Thank you!
Can your team also make a patch resolving this issue to a recommended release version? 3.2.1.0.253 (MR Patch4)
My client uses this release in production (because it is recommended by Ruckus at support page)
Why not to include 132 channel and allow only 20 MHz for it like 165 channel? It is allowed in appropriate legal act

And according to legal act, EIRP should be less or equal 100 mWt ( 20dBm) on all channels.
