It's not quite clear what you mean by "NIST controls" - NIST publishes
standards & guidelines, they don't regulate.
Now, if you're running a Federal data center, or one for a government
contractor - perhaps you're referring to "NIST Compliance" under FISMA
(the Federal Information Security Management Act) - which involves
compliance with a bunch of FIPS (Federal Information Processing
Standards). See https://csrc.nist.gov/topics/laws-and-regulations/laws/fisma
for some background.
Now if I had to guess - I expect that there are some security standards
that would prohibit placing an antenna inside a data center handling any
kind of sensitive or classified data.
If you have any systems, in the data center, that require security
certification & accreditation, I expect your accreditation authority
would be the person to talk to. Or your information security officer.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra
Theory is when you know everything but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined:
nothing works and no one knows why. ... unknown
