A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20240040475A1) outlines a method for acquiring telecommunication regulations through a systematic process. The method involves executing a driver to drive a wireless communication module, comparing location data to recorded telecommunication regulations in program codes of the driver, and operating the system based on the acquired telecommunication regulation corresponding to the location data. The location data, which may include a country code or an area code, is crucial in determining the appropriate telecommunication regulation for the system. The system scans beacon signals from access points to gather location data and adjusts transmission power based on the acquired regulation.

Furthermore, the patent also describes a system that implements the method for acquiring telecommunication regulations. This system includes a wireless communication module, a memory storing the necessary driver and program codes, and an operating system that executes the driver to drive the wireless communication module. The system utilizes location data stored in the BIOS or operating system, along with beacon signal scanning from access points, to determine the appropriate telecommunication regulation for operation. The method involves various phases such as system SKU check, supplementary check, and environmental check to ensure accurate acquisition of telecommunication regulations. Each telecommunication regulation recorded in the program codes includes details like channel plan, physical layer configuration, supervision standard, and transmission power adjustment based on the acquired regulation.
