Hi,
last month I have order an outdoor access pointys from USA made by Fortinet, (model OAP832e                  
 Outdoor, ruggedized Dual radio - 3x3 3-stream 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n and 5 GHz a/n/ac 3-stream Access Point. Requires Antennas to be ordered separately.  Includes typical wall and pole mounting hardware.  Includes N-Type to RPSMA adapters (6ea).
However it was stopped by custom of QATAR and eventually ICT Qatar implied that the access points would interrupt with gov. frequency hence these are not allowed.
My question now is what does it mean by that frequency of this outdoor access points will interrupt with other frequencies?

The 2.4 GHz B/G wireless band is shared with numerous other types of devices, including cordless phones, microwave ovens and medical devices.  In theory a 2.4 GHz router could cause interference with many types of devices.

However, since the 2.4 GHz band is used elsewhere worldwide with few restrictions, and most modern B/G devices are frequency agile, in my opinion, in this specific case the government in question may be more interested in controlling wireless networking (and consequent possible uncontrolled internet access), than in preventing interference.

It basically means they're not compliant with your local regulations. There are different governing bodies and different restrictions set by those bodies. For example, in North America the FCC allow 11 channels to be used at 2.4GHz while ETSI allow 13 in Europe.

You need to check that the APs are correct for your region.
