Boost for short-range devices as Ofcom updates licence-exemption regulations

Ofcom has confirmed technical changes for use of spectrum in the 874 to 874.4 MHz and 915 to 919.4 MHz bands to support use of short-range wireless devices.

They have updated the Wireless Telegraphy Regulations to allow networked radio-frequency identification devices (RFIDs) and Internet of Things (IOT) devices to operate in these bands without the need for a licence.

These changes also mean businesses and organisations can use these devices in a harmonised way, which will reduce the risk of interference with other systems operating in the band.

Ofcom have also announced a new licence for the use of Railway Level Crossing Radar Sensor Systems. The new licence supports use of these systems across the UK’s rail network, helping to improve railway safety by detecting obstacles at level crossings.
