Specialized Mobile Services (Trunking)

In this page:Information about Specialized Mobile Service (SME) also called Trunking.


Specialized Mobile Service (SME) also known as Trunking or trunking system, is a service very similar to cellular service, being considered in many countries in the same category.

 

The main differences are:

  • SME is destined to legal people or groups of people characterized for the specific activity accomplishment. It cannot individually be offered to physical people.
  • It Offers: Push to talk, to a group.

Frequencies used

  • Main frequency: 806-821 MHz and 851-866 MHz,
  • Other Bands: 460-462 MHz and 465-467 MHz, MHz, 821-824 MHz and 866-869 MHz, 896-901 MHz and 935-940 MHz.

Consignment Frequency to SME operators is done in frequencies blocks of 1MHz (500 kHz to go / 500 kHz to come back). The maximum spectrum limit for each operator was expanded from 15 MHz, including transmission and reception channels, to 25MHz through Res. nº 519 of 11/21/08.
