The UAE telecom regulatory authority has equipped the National Laboratory to examine, test and certify all 5G phone mobile devices operating on the the country’s networks.

The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TRA) has equipped the National Laboratory with the necessary equipment for it to test these mobile devices and ensure that they meet the approved technical standards.

The move also aims to protect users from using devices that do not meet the standard specifications, which may affect the safety of mobile networks as well as of the users.

It also helps government and private entities to examine the devices before importing or buying them from abroad.

The National Laboratory will ensure that the 5G devices conform to the approved international standards, and also adhere to UAE specifications, in order to guarantee that the devices are compatible with local networks and regulations.

The TRA provides services, including registering and approving telecom devices, registering suppliers of telecom equipment, and issuing custom release permits for telecom devices.

It works to identify and register telecom devices that can be used in the UAE without causing damage to users, interfere with frequency, or damage to telecommunications networks. It also approve and registers telecommunications equipment in the country before importing it to ensure that they comply with laws and regulations.

“The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority works constantly to ensure that mobile phones are compatible with the approved technical standards included in the Type Approval Regime, with the aim of ensuring access to the best services and full compatibility with networks operating in the country. Moreover, given the high demand for 5G compatible devices, the Authority launched this initiative with the aim of ensuring that all mobile phones in the market are safe and meet the required standards,” reiterated Mohammad Al Shamsi, manager of National Lab.

A report by Ericsson in December last year found there will be 130 million 5G subscriptions in the MENA region by 2026, representing 15 per cent of total mobile subscriptions.
