  28. 29. In 1997 in Europe, the frequency range of 868 – 870 MHz was passed for Short Range Devices (SRDs) in and is thus available for RFID applications in the 43 member states of CEPT. not available for ISM applications in Europe USA & Australia 888-889MHz & 902-928MHz used by backscatter(RFID) Systems. Frequency range 915.0 MHz Frequency range 869.0 MHz
  29. 30. The ISM range 2.400 – 2.4835 GHz partially overlaps with the frequency ranges used by amateur radio and radiolocation services. For this UHF frequency range, buildings and other obstacles behave as good reflectors and damp electromagnetic waves at transmission. Applications like backscatter (RFID) systems, telemetry transmitters and PC LAN systems for the wireless networking of PCs are carried out in this frequency range Frequency range 2.45 GHz
  30. 31. The ISM range 5.725 – 5.875 GHz partially overlaps with the frequency ranges used by amateur radio and radiolocation services. Typical ISM applications for this frequency range include movement sensors, used as door openers or contact less toilet flushing and also for backscatter (RFID) systems. The ISM range 24.00 – 24.25 GHz overlaps partially with the amateur radio and radio location services and also by earth resources services via satellite. This frequency range is used by movement sensors, directional radio systems for data transmission. Frequency range 24.125 GHz Frequency range 5.8 GHz
