In conjunction with LEAP24, the Communications, Space and Technology Commission (CST) has published the Information Memorandum for the Specialized Radio Network License in the 450 MHz band, which aims to meet the demands of the national sectors for wireless communication systems.

CST explains that allocating the needed frequencies to establish and deploy a national specialized communications network will support various sectors such as;  Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Petrochemicals, Transportation, Tourism, Logistics and others; which will therefore enable these sectors to adopt smart applications, automate operations, and enable Internet of Things (IoT) applications to connect, monitor and control.

The document includes several elements such as the license frequencies, eligibility, rollout mechanism, frequency license commitments, and the applicants' evaluation criteria. 

CST noted that the deadline for applications from eligible applicants will be on Thursday, May 9th 2024.
