RSS-196 Issue 2: Point-to-Multipoint Broadband Equipment Operating in the Bands 512-608 MHz for Rural Remote Broadband Systems (RRBS) (TV Channels 21 to 36) sets out the requirements for certification of equipment employed in Rural Remote Broadband Systems (RRBS) to provide point-to-multipoint fixed wireless access broadband radiocommunication in the bands 512-608 MHz (TV channels 21 to 36).
RSS-196 is updated to remove the band 614-698 MHz as per the policy decision in the document Decision on Repurposing the 600 MHz Band (SLPB-004-15).
