Egypt: NTRA updates the use of WLAN 5GHz

The changes affect both indoor and outdoor use.

1. 802.11ac devices can now be approved and used in the frequency band 5.150-5.250 GHz and 5.250-5.350 GHz.
2. The frequency band 5.470-5.725 GHz isn’t allowed for the commercial use (no changes from previous regulations).
3. The frequency band 5.725-5.850 GHz is changed from indoor unlicensed use to outdoor use only, and end user requires approval/license from the NTRA .
4. It is required that the manufacturer/supplier provides customized firmware to disable this band (5.725-5.850 GHz) for unlicensed users.
