Region 'not affected by 5G flights interference issue'

The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) of UAE has clarified that the issue of flight disruption due to 5G deployment is not related to the region and there is no disruption or interference in the UAE between 5G networks and air navigation systems.
The issue is exclusively related to the US airports referred to, as new spectrum frequencies allocated to 5G there differ from the frequencies designated for use in our region, said a statement.
It noted that the 5G stations in the UAE have been installed in multiple places for many years, and no negative impact on the safety of air navigation systems has occurred.
"TDRA bases its 5G plans on studies that take into account the safety of frequencies and potential impact on other sectors. TDRA also considers the decisions and procedures approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in this regard," it said.
TDRA confirms that it is coordinating in this matter with the General Civil Aviation Authority, which in turn coordinates and communicates with the International Civil Aviation Organization and European and American aviation safety regulatory agencies to ensure the highest levels of safety and security in this context, it added. - TradeArabia News Service
