This draft is about the use of radio frequency spectrum for Microwave Link Communication Systems, and was issued for public consultations which is opened from its issuance date, November 27th, until December 18th 2023.

Microwave Link Communication Systems

Technically, Microwave can be defined as line-of-sight wireless communication system that uses high frequency beams of radio waves that can provide high speed of wireless connections. This connection can be used to send and receive large-capacity data such as video, voice, or other information. Major advantage of using Mirowave link communication systems is due to the small wavelenght it has, this allows microwave to do point-to-point communication in relatively-smaller size antenna. Transceiver antenna will be pointed directly to the receiver antenna to allow them sending and receiving in a narrow beams. Therefore, microwave antennas can work with several other antennas nearby, without causing interference between one and another.

Some topis discussed in this regulations draft are:

  1. planning the use of radio frequency bands (band plan) for microwave link communication systems;
  2. planning for the use of radio frequency channels (channeling plan) for microwave link communication systems in Appendix I;
  3. provisions for minimum distance for use of radio frequency spectrum channels for microwave link communication systems in Appendix II;
  4. microwave link anchoring rights;
  5. telecommunications equipment and/or Microwave Link telecommunications equipment;
  6. International coordination;
  7. supervision and control;
  8. transition provisions; And
