UHF Regulation outside Europe

Radio Regulations for UHF outside of Europe

Status: July 2012

Two UHF frequency scenarios have developed globally over the past years for regional/global SRD RFIDs applications:

  • ECC regulations & ETSI standard 868 MHz based technology
  • FCC oriented 915 MHz frequency allocations
