On April 26th, Qatar published on its website its policy regarding WIFI 6E. In that document, CRA explains that the decision on the spectrum assignments for WIFI 6E will be done in two phases.
Phase 1: An immediate release of a class license for the use of WIFI 6E in the band 5925-6425 MHz
Phase 2: The decision on the assignment of the upper band 6425-7125MHz will be taken after the WRC 23
Also, CRA instructed on the use of the lower band as follows
- Indoor use Only @23dBm
- Outdoor and Indoor use @14dBm
For more on the conditions of use of the 5925-6425MHz, a guideline from CRA can be downloaded from our Knowledge Center
On March 17th, ARTP issued a new regulation for Short Range Devices Regulations.
The new regulation opens new bands for new applications:
- more bands are allowed for inductive applications like Wireless Chargers
- 24.05-24.5GHz and 77-81GHz are open for RTTT
- 57-64GHz is allowed for Non specific applications including radars
- more bands for radiodetermination, TLPR, TLP
- 6000-8500MHz for Non Specific including UWB
For the full copy of the regulation, you are invited to download from our knowledge center
Egypt published on its website the regulatory framework ed Jan 2022.
The framework details the different licenses needed for the provision of each element of the IoT value chain. In total, five entities can be licensed/authorized to act on the IoT value chain:
- Existing MNOs can offer services through LTE-M and NBIoT as well as through non cellular LPWAN using 863-870MHz
- IoT network operators can provide connectivity and services through Non Cellular LPWAN based on 863-870MHz
- Satellite Operators can only provide network connectivity
- IoT service provider can be licensed to offer IoT services to others.
- Government Entities can be authorized to establish IoT platform for own use and may use IoT service providers to offer service for others.
More details on the LPWAN bands allowed for non cellular IoT as well as the full document of the regulatory framework can be found in our Knowledge Center.
For those with no much time to read the whole framework, NTRA issued an overview document that highlights the main points.
ARTCI Ivory Coast informed all potential applicants that they need to submit a sample for every product they want to approve or face the application to be rejected at the front desk level.
This is not a change in the regulation but rather an enforcement of existing regulation
After issuance of a draft in 2019, South Africa ICASA issued on Dec 15th 2021 the amendment of the radio frequency spectrum regulation listing allowed bands for unlicensed bands. The new regulations came with the following modifications:
- More bands for inductive applications allowing more deployment for Wireless charger beyond 135KHz (135-148.5KHz and 148.5-5000KHz)
- New RFID Band 400-600KHz -8dbuA/m @10m
- UWB: 3100-4800MHz & 6000-9500 MHz
- 5725-5875MHz added for Non Specific Applications EN 300440 and for Wireless Industrial Applications EN 303 258
- Radar 57-64Ghz EN 305550
- 63-64GHz for ITS
- 77-81GHz for RTTT
These are the main changes our customers were asking about all the time.. finally, we have them now!
