Indian Ministry of Telecommunications works on permitted frequencies for 5G network

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

The Ministry of Telecommunications is currently working on the spectrum of permitted frequencies and the corresponding 5G devices will soon be available on the Indian market. The future frequencies will be allocated as a harmonised and coherent spectrum necessary for the deployment of next generation access technologies, the Ministry said. To operate so-called Multi-Gigabit Broadband (MBB) services in a 5G network, operators must be allocated larger and coherent frequency bands. This strategy is supported by a publication of the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority and endorsed in the Digital Communications Guidelines of the relevant ministry.

The frequencies and corresponding equipment are currently being tested for early release.

For the new 5G network, the Committee of the Ministry of Telecommunications proposes the auctioning of a total of 11 frequency bands, four of which would be immediately available for use. The 700 MHz band was offered at the last auction but not sold. Its 35 MHz spectrum is still available for 4G and 5G services. The 3.5 Ghz band is intended for IMT services in India. The worldwide introduction of 5G networks is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. Successful pilot projects are already in operation and thus the timetable for India in the context of global adaptation is also on schedule.

Companies wishing to market products in the 5G sector must obtain information in good time and apply for the appropriate permission (WPC registration) for their products. In India, the Wireless Planning & Coordination (WPC) department of the Ministry of Communications is responsible for wireless devices and broadcasting and telecommunications licensing. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information on WPC certification. In addition, we offer you a comprehensive service package within the scope of WPC registration.
