new regulations for short range wireless devicesOfcom consults on new regulations for short range wireless devices

Ofcom has today published proposals for new regulations regarding the use of certain short range wireless devices.

Short range devices include baby monitors, keyless entry cards, alarms and some Wi-Fi systems, which all rely on spectrum. They are consulting on making new regulations regarding the frequencies and technical requirements for using these devices in the 874 to 876 and 915 to 921 MHz spectrum bands. This implements a European Commission decision to harmonise these bands for short range devices.

They are also consulting on revoking an existing licence exemption for railway level-crossing radar sensor systems. These systems are used by Network Rail to monitor railway intersections and detect obstacles that may cause damage to moving trains.

They are proposing to introduce a national licence for these systems, which will allow them to be used in more locations across the rail network.
