HIP 100 proposes the provisional assignment of countries in Africa with unspecified and EU433 plans to the EU868 frequency plan. The shift to EU868 for LoRaWAN aims to standardize the frequency plan across the continent.

Key points:

  • Proposes this change in alignment with guidance from local regulatory authorities like the Africa Telecoms Union (ATU) and practices of local deployers.
  • Acknowledges the current lack of specific regional parameters or harmonization defined for some countries by the LoRa Alliance.
  • Addresses the issue where EU433 is currently the only or primary frequency plan in these areas, proposing a switch by the Helium Network to EU868.
  • Aims to enhance regulatory compliance and efficiency in the region's LoRaWAN network deployments.

If this proposal passes, it will lead to the standardization of the EU868 frequency plan for LoRaWAN across many African regions, aligning them with international standards and improving the interoperability of IoT devices in the region. Additionally, it will necessitate updates to existing infrastructure and regulatory frameworks, requiring coordination with local authorities and stakeholders to ensure compliance and successful implementation.
