    1. Annex 1: Devices that do not require homologation except for specific terminal equipment (p.9);

    3. Frequencies that are restricted from use (p.21)

  • New Type Approval Process

    ARCOTEL, the Ecuadorian Regulator has informed that the Letter of No Action (LoNA) for products not subject to homologation is now voluntary:

    • Devices with an output power less than 50mW and not considered part of a restricted category are still exempt from Type Approval
    • WLAN client services (printers, laptops, computers, etc.) no longer require homologation but WLAN master/infrastructure devices still do. 

  • 57-64 GHz band open

    Following Resolution 03-02-ARCOTEL-2016 from 2016-02-24, changes have been performed to the National Frequency Allocation plan. The frequency band 57-64 GHz for WLAN 802.11ad devices has been allocated and devices using this technology can now be homologated. 


  • New Requirement for 2G/3G/4G devices

    Since November 2015, the Ecuadorian Regulator ARCOTEL release only homologation certificates if devices with 2G/3G function operate at least in 850 MHz and 1900 MHz and devices with 4G in at least LTE bands 2 and 4.


  • SUPERTEL changed name to ARCOTEL

    ARCOTEL (Agencia de Regulación y Control de las Telecommunicaciones) is now replacing SUPERTEL (Supertendencia de Telecomunicaciones) as the Ecuadorian Regulatory Authority.

    The Type Approval remains unaffected and still no specific label is required. During the transition period, current applications might be delayed by approximately 1-2 weeks.
