Flexible use of Broadband Equipment operating in the band 3450-3900MHz

  • RSS-192, issue 4, Flexible Use Broadband Equipment Operating in the Band 3450-3650 MHz, dated May 2020, has been replaced by RSS-192, issue 5, Flexible Use Broadband Equipment Operating in the Band 3450-3900 MHz. 
  • The major changes are as follows: 
  • To enable flexible application, the upper frequency range was expanded from 3650 to 3900 MHz, and the standard’s title was modified as a result. 
  • The transmitted output power was modified or the fixed subscriber equipment other than indoor base station and subscriber equipment. 
  • For equipment operating beyond 3900MHz, additional requirements for out-of-frequency band were added. 
  • The necessity to classify base station equipment as type 1 or type 2 has been abolished, hence the test report requirements have also been eliminated. 
  • Updated to match the structure of the latest RSS. 
  • Editorial edits and clarifications have been made when necessary. 
  • In the frequency range 3450-3900 MHz, this RSS is applicable to base station, point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and subscriber equipment. 
  • This release will be effective as of the day it appears on the website of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED). 
  • However, there will be a six-month transition period after the publishing date. Applications for certification under either RSS-192, issue 5 or issue 4, will be accepted during this transitional time.
