71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz radiofrequency bands are now open for SPs

20.07.2016 #tech #regulation #Belarus

On July 14, 2016 the State Commission for Radio Frequencies under the Security Council of the Republic of Belarus introduced amendments to the Decision No. 17K/08 dated May 15, 2008 "On allocation of radiofrequency bands for radio-electronic means of fixed radioservices". The Decision now includes 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz radiofrequency bands.

These radiofrequency bands are now allocated for radiorelay communications planning and operation of radio-electronic means (radiorelay stations) in Belarus.

This will allow radio spectrum users to use 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz radiofrequency bands for radio relay stations without individual permission of Radio Frequencies Commission.

This range has a number of advantages:

  • poor utilization of millimeter frequency range
  • rapid decay of radiowaves eliminates the problem of interference (no interference due to reflections from various obstacles in the urban environment), it automatically solves the problem of frequency planning
  • narrow radiating pattern

Radiorelay stations of millimeter frequency bands is a low cost alternative to fiber-optic communication lines. They are quick to deploy and do not require a cable duct.
