The first and most exciting thing is that Wireless Indoors systems are kind of mandatory and available almost everywhere in the Emirates.

The Emirates and Dubai, in particular, known as technology pioneer for 5G. It works well here and available almost everywhere in the Emirates. The "Digital UAE" initiative makes it undoubted that in terms of regulation and telecom development Emirates regional leader, being on a par with the most telco developed countries. 

Secondly, The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) in Emirates takes specific action and rules to allocate specific spectrum and rules for indoor wireless systems for Wi-Fi, 5G/LTE and others.

It allows operators to improve their networks with great support from the regulator. Lately, for instance, the TRA has designated an additional 500 MHz radio spectrum of 6 GHz band (specifically 5925-6425 MHz) to Wi-Fi for indoor use at an EIRP of 250 mW underclass authorization.

The TRA is highly ranked for the Generation of Regulation according to ITU.

It means that 99% of residencies, apart-hotels and private locations are equipped with DAS or ADAS systems from the main vendors, like Ericsson, Nokia, Comba, Commscope and others.

Unlike in some other countries, it's extremely easy to get an approval to install DAS or Active DAS here, plus very often it's mandatory here๐Ÿ‘

On top of having a very advanced regulator, when it comes to outdoor antennas โ€” the UAE is one of the leaders in using of camouflaged antennas for keeping cities nice looking.

To summarise โ€” the Emirates is notable and advanced country in terms of Wireless Indoor Systems Readiness for all standards, starting from LTE, to 5G, IoT and Wi-Fi. Advanced regulator steers and mandates the telco industry forward with 5G/Wi-Fi indoor and strict outdoor requirement. Supports public demands and helps MNO's to manage a huge data demand coming from advanced local users and tourists from all around the world.
