TRA releases spectrum for 5G private networks

1 Dec 2022

Bahrain’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has made part of the C-band spectrum available for 5G private networks, in line with the goals outlined in its Workplan for the 2022-23 period. By making spectrum available in the 3.8GHz-4.2GHz band, the regulator says it will ensure maximum flexibility while protecting existing systems and optimising both the short and long-term use of the frequencies. Licences will be available to businesses, government users and licensed operators, ‘allowing them to determine the best ways of utilising wireless technologies to support their digitisation plans’. The TRA will also launch a programme to ensure that users can reap the benefits of wireless technologies while incorporating them into the digitisation of their operations.
