Netherlands opens 3.6 GHz band for private 5G

1 min read

Local spectrum licenses in the so-called” 3. 6 GHz band” are now available for local private 5G networks, according to the Dutch Authority for Digital Infrastructure ( RDI). It has been confirmed that businesses and organizations can then submit applications for two 50 megahertz band portions, in the frequency ranges of 3400 to 3450 MHz and 3750 to 2800. Applications have been open for a few weeks; licenses will be active as of December 1 ( 2023 ). Licenses have a 17-year validity period through December 31, 2040.

The Netherlands is the most recent European nation to release excellent mid-band spectrum for specialized business use. The distribution is largely consistent with the groundbreaking European spectrum release for the exact purpose in 2019 at 3.7 to 3.8 GHz band. It is lower than the 3.8 to 4.2 GHz band that has been ring-fenced in the UK and around which the European Union is urging member states to congregate, and it is slightly higher than Switzerland’s provision, which was announced in September, at 3.4 to 3.5 %. &nbsp,

According to the RDI ( Rijksinspectie Digitale Infrastructuur ) last week, licenses will be issued on a first-come, first served basis. Out of the entire 400 MHz, the mini 50MHz tranches are accessible” for local mobile applications of companies and organizations.” There is no explanation for the remaining 300MHz between 3.4 and 3.8 GHz plans. Where sites and networks cross over within regional license ranges, it urged “mutual cooperation.”

According to the statement,” New applicants have the same rights to frequent use as their neighbors, who may already be licensed… Companies with a permit must take into account the obligation of common cooperation.” The spectrum is “important… to ensure [enterprise ] processes work undisturbed and protected,” according to the statement. It went on to say that” Companies can, jointly or singly, build their own 5G network” and listed the exclusive use of the spectrum for augmented and virtual reality applications, as well as for the management and orchestration of industrial robots and vehicles.

Businesses may apply for licenses around.
