Sunday 22 April, 2018


The Minister of Communications and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation, Nikolai Nikiforov, held a meeting on 17 April in Moscow with the State Commission for Radio Frequencies (GKRC) during which the possibility of deploying DAB+ was discussed, where appropriate and dependent on availability of spectrum.  Relevant regulation and licensing measures would also be required. 

The Commission presented a report of the Radio Research Institute on the possibility of working with DAB + networks in Russia and their compatibility with existing networks in the radio frequency band 175,872-228,128 MHz.

GKRC has decided that DAB + technology can be used under certain conditions and with the availability of a free radio frequency resource within the current order and established procedures. To deploy communication networks with DAB + technology, it is necessary to certify the equipment and adjust the regulatory documents that define the licensing of digital broadcasting of the new standard.

In addition, GKRC considered a number of applications for the allocation of various radio frequency bands.

The commission also recommended the organizers of the radio frequency band in the bands 470-638 MHz and 650-758 MHz to use wireless microphones.
