The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) published a public consultation on its website related to the Wireless Local Area Network (Wi-Fi 6) and CRA's proposed policy for assigning the full frequency band (5925-7125 MHz) to this network with an aim of receiving the views and comments from the local and international stakeholders and interested parties about CRA's proposed decision.
Wi-Fi 6 is one of the world's new and cutting-edge technologies, helping to address Internet data traffic congestion issues caused by the connectivity of multiple devices to the same Wi-Fi hub. This technology will enable consumers in Qatar to connect more devices to the Wi-Fi with high-speed Internet connectivity, which includes laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and smart TV.
CRA president Mohamed Ali al-Mannai stated that, CRA is one of the first regulators in the region and the world to announce clearly and transparently its policy related to the frequency band for the Wi-Fi 6 technology, as CRA is always keen to encourage the introduction of advanced technologies to Qatar and keep its relevant regulatory instruments up to date to cover the new technologies and radio communications applications, which will contribute to a better future. The introduction of this technology will help support many sectors in Qatar, including the education sector, especially with the current approach related to remote learning through the internet because of the conditions associated with the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). This technology will also support the mobile telecom market as a complementary technology to the (5G) Networks, especially during Qatar's hosting of major events, including the FIFA World Cup - Qatar 2022.
