Intercommunication Laboratory (ICL) is fully equipped with all needed calibrated test equipment for conducting testing per the applicable GSRs of Wireless Planning Commission (WPC) wing on Intended radiators which operate in the de-licensed frequency bands for processing Equipment Type Approvals (ETA)

 

We are equipped with test instruments with capability upto 26.5GHz frequency presently. Multiple test instruments to test in the range of 3.2GHz and 26.5GHz are available for convenient and faster testing.

 

The engineers are well trained and have good expertise in RF testing.

 

As per WPC notification, The below tests need to be performed on all notified products as per the Gazette

 

  • Peak power

  • Out of band emissions

  • Power spectral density

  • Frequency range and

  • Occupied bandwidth

  • Frequency range

 

as applicable depending on the product for processing Equipment Type Approval (ETA). ICL can do testing per either ETSI or FCC standards. Eg : EN 300 328 or FCC Part 15.247.

 

ICL also promises the fastest turn around time possible. We will handle your testing project on top priority sequentially as received and will release the test report at the least possible timeline.

  • exempted from import licensing requirement as per Import Policy of DGFT and;

  • working in de-licensed frequency band)s (as per applicable Gazette Notifications from Ministry of Communications

 

Whether ETA is required for each finished product, manufactured in India, containing the same RF Module having ETA?

A product operating in licensed exempt band(s) should have equipment type approval (ETA). In the cases, when the product is manufactured in India and RF module(s)having ETA is/are fitted in it without  any modification/alteration; then  no separate  ETA  is required for  such finished product. However, if product(s) are manufactured  outside India,  then  ETA  is  required  for each product before its import
