The use of Wi-Fi 6E is made possible following the publication of Decision ANRT / DG / N ° 07/2021 of May 2021 modifying and supplementing the technical conditions of use of radio installations made up of low power devices and low range. This new decision brings some other novelties such as the use of omnidirectional obstacle detection radars in the 24-24.25 GHz band, low power low range portable devices operating in certain frequency bands.
Concerning Wi-Fi 6E :
200 mW EIRP
Indoor Use Only. Use onboard of vehicles/wheeled vehicles is not allowed.
25 mW EIRP
Can also be used for portable devices (smartphones, connected objects) Indoor and Outdoor. Use for drones is not allowed.
Regarding the extension of the 2.4 GHz band :
200 mW EIRP max
This band is intended for omnidirectional obstacle detection radars and motion detection radars
Please feel free to inquire if you have more questions
ARPT, considering the frequency bands are licensed solely to the mobile operators informed the public that the usage of Signal boosters as a technical solution to boost the coverage should agreed directly with the mobile operators.
Regarding signal jammers, ARPT considers that according to article 69 of decree 2019-1877 ( 11 novembre 2019), the use of means to alter communications is forbidden unless authorized by ARPT under special circumstances related to the public security.
DWLF&M (The Directorate of Wireless Licensing, Frequency & Monitoring) is the body in Bahrain in charge of issuing certificates for devices that do not connect to public Networks. DWLF&M and the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) will be merging and type approvals for all products will be issued by TRA moving forward.
