Chile (SUBTEL) - New Resolution for Short-Range Devices
Subsecretaría de Telecomunicaciones (SUBTEL) of Chile issued Resolution 1807 on October 22, 2020. This Resolution modifies the Resolution 1985 “On fixed technical standards for SRD”. Resolution 1807 results from the necessity to add the new Wi-Fi 6 frequency bands into the technical regulations for short-range devices. This will help users, importers and sellers clearly understand which short-range devices are intended for indoor use and which are not.
Resolution 1807 amends Resolution 1985 with regards to the following:
In Article 1 section j.1, power limits for outdoor application of SRD operating in the 5.150-5.250GHz band have been increased to max 1W (30dBm) e.i.r.p. with power spectral density limits of 17mW/MHz.
Access Points (AP) operating in the frequency band from 5.925 to 7.125 MHz are for indoor use only and should have the following technical parameters: max 30 dBm e.i.r.p., power spectrum density limit of 5 dBm / MHz.
APs operating in the frequency band from 5.925 to 7.125 MHz must only have integrated antennas and cannot be equipped with external or removable antennas
APs operating in the frequency band from 5.925 to 7.125 MHz cannot use internal batteries or have spaces for their installation
User terminal devices that are connected with such APs must operate at the following power levels of max 24 dBm e.i.r.p. or 250mW and max power spectral density limit of -1 dBm / MHz.
