SUBTEL Updates Res. 1985, Publishes Res. 2844
Subsecretaría de Telecomunicaciones (SUBTEL) of Chile has newly issued a Resolución 2844 Exenta which revises Resolución 1985 Exenta (2017), the Technical Regulation for Short Range Devices. In order to adjust certification requirements to booming market reality and harmonize the frequency ranges of the WiFi 6 technology in the existing regulations for efficient usage of the available RF spectrum, the authority modifies Article 1 (items h, i and j.1) of the Resolución 1985 Exenta as follows:
1. The frequency band of 2400–2483.5 MHz and the field strength value of 50 mV/m at 3 meters were completely removed from item h. Additionally, the item was updated, extending this paragraph allowing equipments to be covered by paragraph j.1.
2. The updated item i shows that the maximum equivalent isotropically radiated power (EIRP) of 50 dBm is now considered, instead of older values.
3. The 5925–7125 MHz frequency range was replaced with the 5925–6425 MHz band in item j.1.
