Kominfo Promises to Raise Next Month IoT Frequency Regulation (CNN Indonesia)

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia – The Ministry of Communication and Information (Kemenkominfo) through the Directorate General of Resources and Equipment of Post and Information Technology (SDPPI) revealed plans to spawn frequency and spectrum usage regulations ahead of the implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT). Ismail, Director General of SDPPI promised that the regulation will be born next month.

Ismail said that he divided the frequency into licensed and unlicensed frequencies. Especially for those who are licensed, he said that the operators are now able to implement IoT at frequencies that are close to their own.

“We will implement it later at the end of this year. We will launch it. Next month, for the frequency and technicality. Currently, IoT is on trial, if it is done it can be released which is unlicensed,” said Ismail in Indosat Ooredoo’s office, Thursday (11/22).

He further explained that this could happen because the government had implemented neutral technology. Therefore this also allows operators to use inherent frequencies for the use of fifth generation internet network technology (5G).

Ismail said that for unlicensed frequencies it is now in the range of 919MHz to 923MHz. Previously in the trial, the range was still 919- 925 MHz.

“If 5G is also allowed, the spectrum with existing technology is neutral so it depends on the cellular itself to invest or not using the existing spectrum,” said Ismail.
