(MENAFN - Gulf Times) The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) has met the substantial
radiocommunication requirements of Losail Circuit Sports Club for the
Superbike World Championship 2017 held recently.
The CRA approved 300 different types of radio equipment such as
walkie-talkies and wireless cameras with 93 different temporary
frequencies, according to a press statement.
Qatar hosted the final round of the Superbike World Championship at
Losail International Circuit for the fourth consecutive year. Losail
Circuit Sports Club organised the event in co-operation with Qatar Motor
and Motorcycle Federation with CRA playing a major supporting role in
line with its national mandate of managing and allocating scarce
resources such as the radio spectrum.
The CRA met the needs of the organisers within a short time period and
extended its full support for the timely release of imported equipment
shipped to Qatar in co-operation with the concerned authorities.
The organisers used CRA's award-winning the E-Spectrum Services Portal
to submit their requests to use the temporary frequencies. The
E-Spectrum Portal, launched in January 2017, is the public interface of
the CRA's Automated Frequency Management System.
The E-Spectrum Portal can be accessed online. It allows spectrum users
to submit applications online for issuing, modifying, or cancelling
their spectrum licences. Users can also view active licences, track
submitted applications, register radio network/ area deployments, view
invoices and make online payments.
Large-scale events typically require the use of the radio spectrum for
activities such as broadcast coverage, surveillance, managing spectators
and security, and high-quality radiocommunication within assigned bands
of the radio spectrum is essential for smooth operations.
The CRA continues to play crucial role in the success of these high
profile events within its mandate and will continue to support all
