Mexico approved two sets of technical guidelines for fixed microwave telecommunications equipment aimed at the multiple access radio and transportation sectors, as well as a new set of rules for trunking telecommunications.
A new set of technical requirements for government agencies' issue of electronic documents has also been published, which include several authentication devices such as QR codes.
The telecommunications regulations deal with technical specifications for devices used for fixed point to point and point-multipoint, multiple access microwave radio communications on the 2.3 to 2.45GHz frequencies, as well as for those operating within the 7GHz, 10.5GHz, 15GHz, 23GHz and 38GHz for data transport applications.
The guidelines include measures of tolerance for interference with other devices, maximum output, technical testing mechanisms and the like and are aimed at informing device manufacturers and importers of the characteristics devices operating in Mexico should comply with.
The e-document guidelines, launched by the country's government oversight ministry, are aimed at standardizing authentication methods of public documents, including birth certificates, marriage licenses and so on, in electronic form.
