The State Commission on Radio Frequencies (GRFC) plans to allocate additional frequencies in the ranges 301.125-305.825 MHz, 337.125-341.825 MHz, 343-344 MHz and 390-394 MHz for the Internet of Things. This is stated in the materials for the GRFC meeting.
According to Izvestia, the frequency resource is allocated for 10 years to an indefinite circle of people. However, only those who will deploy IoT networks on equipment of domestic origin, included in the unified register of Russian radio-electronic products, will be able to use it.
The explanatory note to the materials of the GRFC notes that today there is a tendency to deploy mobile radio communication networks in the lower radio frequency bands (LTE-450 / LTE-420 / LTE-350 networks), therefore it is advisable to consider the possibility of allocating a radio frequency resource in the 300-400 MHz band and networks the Internet of Things.
The Ministry of Digital Development confirmed to Izvestia the information about the intention to consider this issue at the next meeting of the GRFC.
