Our article Today is about WLAN 802.11abgn testing, we mean all of 802.11 protocols tests standards in Indonesia.
You know In order to sell the product (which is embedded of 802.11 technologies) in Indonesia market, your product needs to comply with the regulation requirement (approval test standard and technical requirements) of Direktorat Jenderal Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika (SDPPI).
WLAN 802.11abgn Testing
Approval test standard for WLAN (802.11agbn) is changed, Old regulation related to 802.11 protocol such as:
- Regulation No. 233/DIRJEN/2010 About tecnical requirements for broadband wireless access (BWA) band 5,8GHz
- Regulation No. 268/DIRJEN/1998 about technical requirements for Radio Wireless Local Area Network (outdoor) and
- Regulation No.058/DIRJEN/1998 about technical requirement for Wireless Local Area Network (LAN)
All of regulations above, replaced by new regulation no 28/PERMEN/2015 already, So it would be any modification for WLAN frequency for 2,4 GHz and 5GHz rules like below :
#Frequency range :
2,4GHz => 2400MHz – 2483,5MHZ (Lower limit – upper limit), channel 1 to max channel 13
5GHz => 5725MHz – 5825MHz (lower limit – upper limit), channel 149 to max channel 161
Max bandwidth 20MHz for 2,4 and 5GHz
Max output power 100mW / 20dBm
Just for your reference, herewith we embedded the official [Bahasa version] regulation no 28/PERMEN/2015 about Technical Requirements of Telecommunication Tools and Equipment that operates in the 2.4GHz and/or 5.8 GHz.
“Persyaratan Teknis Alat dan Perangkat Telekomunikasi yang beroperasi pada pita Frekuensi radio 2,4GHZ dan/atau pita frekuensi 5,8 GHZ”
New WLAN Regulation
Update: On May 17th 2019, SDPPI issued a series of new regulations, and one of these is Directorate General of Post and Telecommunication number 2 of 2019, or “PERDIRJEN POSTEL No. 2 Tahun 2019”. This regulation concerns about “New Technical Requirements of Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Device”.
Bringing many new updates, this regulation is aimed to replace previous WLAN regulation which is Communication Ministry Regulation Number 28 of 2015 or “PERMEN KOMINFO No. 28 Tahun 2015. Below is the copy of this new regulation for your reference.
There are many new requirement regarding to submit samples in SDPPI lab, so you have to discuss more detail to avoid any problem in testing process.
We though our short explanation about WLAN 802.11abgn Testing clear enough, If you have any question regarding to obtain SDPPI approvals do not hesitate to contact us
