Radio networks

Radio networks are used for voice communication or data transmission between mobile and/or portable stations, possibly through base stations.

Examples:

  • a taxi company sending routing information to its vehicles;
  • walkies-talkies used for the smooth operation of events or a building site;
  • remote control for cranes;
  • beepers used in hospitals.

In order to use these communication systems without any interference a specific frequency needs to be assigned to each user. Therefore, it is necessary to apply to BIPT for a licence.

In order to allow the technical characteristics to be checked on site the licence has to be kept near the place where the radio is used.

Certain equipment is licence-exempt. A list can be consulted in the Equipment section of this site
