Indonesia SDPPI Issued a Draft Technical Standards for WLAN- Public Consultation Technical Requirements for Telecommunication Tools and Devices Wireless Local Area Network

On January 19, 2018, The technical requirements of wireless local area network telecommunication equipment and devices stipulated in Regulation of the Minister of Communication and Information Technology Number 28 of 2015 on Technical Requirements of Telecommunication Tools and Equipment Operating in 2.4 GHz Radio Frequency Band and / or Radio Frequency Band 5.8 GHz needs to be adjusted with technological developments as well as the policy of arranging radio frequency bands.

The adjustments and improvements made among others related to: 

1. The addition of radio frequency bands, which originally local area network wireless devices can only operate on the radio frequency band 2 400-2 483.5 MHz and 5 725 - 5 825 MHz, in this RPM added several new radio frequency bands, to be: 

(1) 2 400-2 483.5 MHz;
(2) 5 150 - 5 250 MHz;
(3) 5 250-5 350 MHz;
(4) 5 470 - 5 725 MHz;
(5) 5 725 - 5 825 MHz.;

2. Wireless local area network devices can operate on:

(1) Single band (single mode) on radio frequency band;
(2) multi band (multi mode) on:
1) the radio frequency band 2 400-2 483.5 MHz and the radio frequency band 5 725 - 5 825 MHz;
2) radio frequency bands 5 150 - 5 250 MHz, 5 250 - 5 350 MHz, and / or 5 470 - 5 725 MHz.

3. Wireless local area network devices in the form of Base Station / Access Point can operate indoor and / or outdoor with the following conditions:

(1) Devices operating on the radio frequency band 2 400 - 2 483.5 and / or the 5 725 - 5 825 MHz radio frequency band may be used for indoor or    outdoor use;
(2) Devices operating at radio band 5 150 - 5 250 MHz, 5 250 - 5 350 MHz, and / or 5 470 - 5 725 MHz can only be used for indoor use.

4. Base Station / Access Point used for indoor shall use antenna which can not be disassembled (fixed and built in).

5. The Wireless Local Area Network Telecommunication Equipment and Apparatus shall not be equipped with the Country Region preferred feature.

6. Added provision of testing methods, as a guideline for the Test Center in testing the wireless local area network devices.

Based on this, the Ministry of Communications and Informatics conducted a public consultation on the draft Regulation of the Minister of Communications and Informatics on the Technical Requirements of Telecommunication Equipment and Telecommunications Wireless Local Area Network. 

The draft regulation will revoke the Decree of the Minister of Communication and Information Number 28 of 2015 on Technical Requirements of Telecommunication Tools and Devices Operating on Radio Frequency Bands of 2.4 GHz and / or 5.8 GHz Radio Frequency Bands.
