  • New Resolution permits the use of the 918 – 928 MHz

    The Comisión Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (CONATEL) issued Resolución 1269/2020 permitting the use of 918-928 MHz frequency range for RFID; SRD and LPWAN equipment. Currently, it is still unclear when the resolution will come into force. We will keep you updated.

    Important: The technical parameters of such devices using this frequency band must be configured according to the limitations established in the Regulation:

    For RFID:

    ERP Power Antenna Beam Width
    ≤ 1 W No restrictions
    1 W ≤ 2 W ≤ 180 °
    2 W ≤ 4 W ≤ 90 °

    For SRD and LPWAN:

    Transmission Type ERP Power Harmonics
    Frequency hopping 2 W 20 dB below the highest-level point, in any 100 kHz bandwidth
    Digital modulation 2 W 20 dB below the highest-level point, in any 100 kHz bandwidth

    50 mV/m

    (-1.23 dBm)

    500 µV/m (-41.23 dBm)


    The maximum bandwidth should not exeed 500 kHz for RFID and 250 kHz for LPWAN. The number of channels is not limited as long as the channels stay within the allowed frequency range and the maximum bandwith is considered. 

    Devices operating in this frequency range will require a label on the product or a statement in the user manual, as  follows:

    “En Paraguay, este equipo deberá ser configurado para operar con las limitaciones establecidas en la norma Técnica NTC-RF-918:2020 de la CONATEL”.

  • Labelling - Renewal

    According to the Telecommunication Authority in Paraguay 'CONATEL', the following labelling rules shall be applied:

    - Devices which have been imported to Paraguay prior to the renewal process, may remain the initial homologation number on the label

    - Devices which have been imported to Paraguay after the renewal process, shall have the renewal homologation number on the label

    It is not possible to obtain the renewal homologation number prior to the issuance of the actual renewal certificate.

  • New Frequency Bands for RFID Devices

    The Official Gazette of the Republic of Paraguay published last 2018-09-03 the Resolution 898/2018 opening the Frequency Band 865-868MHz for RFID Devices in Paraguay.

    The documents clearly inform about the technical specifications to be followed in order to type approve the said devices.

  • 865-868 MHz Band not subject to Type Approval

    CONATEL in Paraguay is no longer approving 865-868 MHz and 915-928 MHz spread spectrum devices due to interference problems. The second frequency band might be re-opened in the future. Devices operating in these bands and already homologated may continue to operate until the expiry date of the certificate.

The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
