In June 2022, the Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) updated the guidelines for the use of radiofrequency spectrum short-range devices. The updated guidelines include the frequency bands 5925-6425 MHz, allocating spectrum for Wi-Fi 6E equipment in these bands.
The first added guideline for frequency band 5925-6425 MHz is for the power/magnetic field 23 dBm (200 mW) mean e.i.r.p. The mean e.i.r.p. density for inland emissions is 10 dBM/MHz. This is an adequate spectrum sharing mechanism that will be implemented for channel access and occupation. The relevant standard to refer to is ATU Recommendation on 6 GHz. This is restricted to Low Power Indoor (LPI) use only. Outdoor use, including in road vehicles, will not be permitted.
The second guideline added for the frequency band 5925-6425 MHz is for the power/magnetic field of 14 dBm (25 mW) e.i.r.p. The means e.i.r.p. density for inland emission 1 dBm/MHz. This too will also be a spectrum used as a sharing mechanism for access and occupation. he relevant standard to refer to is ATU Recommendation on 6 GHz. This guideline is for Very Low Power (VLP) Indoor and outdoor use. Use of drones will be prohibited. But Very Low Power device will include portable devices.
