Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) announced amendments in the type approval process for cellular devices.
The decision is based on the technical standard NBTC TS 1027-2560 for International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) using the E-UTRA technology (Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access) which is a technical standard for LTE equipment.
- This requirement is effective upon the verbal announcement
- LTE LAA/eLAA Band 46 will be opened and the NBTC demands to submit test reports for Band 46 for all WWAN devices.
