The Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones (ENACOM) of Argentina has issued new protocols for Broadband and Frequency-Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) systems.
These protocols are used for equipment such as WiFi, Zigbee, BT, and BLE devices.
All devices must be tested under these new protocols starting December 1, 2020.
Local test laboratory accreditations are granted automatically. The manufacturer will still need to use conducted samples to test devices. Testing will be performed in the same way.
The new protocols will impact the testing procedure and methods. Test labs must now measure both the minimum and maximum bandwidth of each band, depending on the technical specification of the device.
For renewals, original test reports will still be accepted as long as they keep complying with standard limits, and there are no changes to the original product specification.
