    Innovation in spectrum use - Darrin Mylet, Business Operations & Regulatory Affairs, Adaptrum Innovation in spectrum use - Darrin Mylet, Business Operations & Regulatory Affairs, Adaptrum Presentation Transcript

    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 1 www.adaptrum.com Innovation In Spectrum Use – Where Is It Going October 3, 2013 Darrin Mylet Business Operations & Regulatory Affairs- Adaptrum
    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 2 www.adaptrum.com • Spectrum Measurements • Crisis, Crunch, Selling • Unused, In Most Places, Most Of The Time • The Implications • Spectrum Confusion • Spectrum Propaganda • Spectrum Status Quo “Spectrum Monitoring” is improving as well. • Auctions and priorities WHERE IS IT TODAY?
    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 3 www.adaptrum.com SPECTRUM “BATTLEFIELD” • Licensed / Exclusive Use • Strong Industry/Regulatory Representation (CTIA, PCIA etc.) • Spectrum Caps Have Been Eliminated/Consolidation Up • Real Spectrum Inventories Have Been Dismissed? • Broadcast / Wireless Mics / Gov • Strong Industry/Regulatory Representation (NAB) • “Incentive Auctions” Very Complicated/Really Necessary? • NTIA “Finding” spectrum. PCAST Report. • Un-licensed / Shared • Limited Regulatory Representation/Fragmented Input/Benefit • Carrying More Data Every Day (60-80% of all mobile traffic) • 90% of Tablets Wi-Fi Only • Not just TVWS, 902 MHz, 2.4, 3.65, 5, 6, 11, 18, 23, 24, 60 GHz
    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 4 www.adaptrum.com IMPACT OF SPECTRUM • CARRIERS GET MORE SPECTRUM • 100 MHz on top of 280 = 36% Increase network capacity • Does not solve, creates less spectrum access diversity • BUILD INFRASTRUCTURE W/EXISTING SPECTRUM • Typical reduction is split into 3, 1.7x reduction in cell radius, capacity increased by factor of 3 or 300% • Do this again (3x3) and you have increase of 900% (Same Spectrum-No new allocations!) More Infrastructure is the answer. • Wi-Fi / WHITE SPACES / SMALL CELL • Cable, Telco, Cellco, New Entrants ALL using Wi-Fi / Shared Access • Open Access to spectrum leads to more infrastructure build-out…..

    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 6 www.adaptrum.com U.S. TV WHITE SPACE SUMMARY 05/14/04 “NPRM Unlicensed Operation in the TV Broadcast Bands ET Docket 04-186” 11/25/09 “Public Notice Invites Database Managers DA 09-2479” Database Responses 01/05/10 “Second Memorandum Opinion and Order FCC10-174” 09/23/10  First 8 Years  Originally heavily debate regarding what to do with Spectrum?  Over 35,000 filings for this Docket  Over last 18 Months  Commercial Launch Wilmington County , NC (KTS)  Commercial Pilot Nottaway County, VA (Adaptrum)  2012 Adaptrum achieves FCC Certification w/iconectiv database  3/2013 Databases Authorized Nationwide  Fall 2013/2014 From 1,000’s of systems to 10,000’s “First Report and Order and Further NPRM” 10/18/06 11/14/08 “Second Report and Order and Memorandum Opinion and Order” “Order designating 9 parties as DBAs” 01/26/11 “Approval of Spectrum Bridge Database” 12/22/11 “Approval of Telcordia Database” 03/26/12 “Third Memorandum Opinion and Order” 4/05/12
    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 7 www.adaptrum.com PROJECTED TVWS IN USA Number of TV channels available throughout the US by county : iconective data
    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 8 www.adaptrum.com PROJECTED TVWS IN THE UK Key Points: 1.US TV White Space based on Grade B Contour, OFCOM using real engineering (Longley-Rice) 1.Ireland Meetings indicate over 100 MHz of UHF White Space available right now, post digital transition. 1.Singapore work indicate lots of TVWS 1.If you manage spectrum properly, you will find even more “whitespace”
    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 9 www.adaptrum.com SPECTRUM DATABASES • Lots of innovation over past 3-4 years. • Tremendous collaboration with FCC/OFCOM and industry • Spectrum Management and Accountability leads to Dynamic Spectrum Use. • Regulatory Leadership is required! • Why does spectrum sit fallow for 5, 10 & 15 Years? • Can we look for Un-Used “Licensed” Spectrum, Government Spectrum, Etc. I think Auctions create spectrum warehouses. • iConectiv (An Ericsson Company), Spectrum Bridge, Google, Microsoft and others. (11 in Total)
    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 10 www.adaptrum.com iconectiv DATABASE • Lightweight device to database interface • FCC Authorized with Value Added features • Device agnostic / Fully functional Other TV Bands Databases Protected Entity Registration Whitespace Device using unlicensed spectrum registers w/database, reports its geo-location, and queries for available channels. Queries again when moved or every 24 hours. Telcordia Database calculates contours according to FCC rules, authenticates device, and provides device with list of available channels based on geo-location and power of device. FCC Data Source: iconectiv

RadComms 2013 11 www.adaptrum.com ADAPTRUM (HARDWARE/SOFTWARE) Adaptrum is a Silicon Valley, CA company Adaptrum was an active participant in the FCC TV Whitespace Device Testing in 2008. In 2012, Adaptrum introduced the first, fully functional FCC Certified, TV Whitespace radio system. In 2013, Adaptrum will launch a low cost commercial FCC Certified TVWS solution.

    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 19 www.adaptrum.com SMALL CELL • Most efficient use of spectrum • Requires more “capex and opex” but puts spectrum to its best and highest use w/o allocating to a chosen few. • Hybrid Open Fiber and Shared Spectrum Wireless is working in the USA and elsewhere. • In 2013, The National Mining Association (Coal) estimates that the the ICT community already uses about 50% more energy than the entire Aviation community. • Wireless can consume much less energy and provide more than adequate bandwidth
    • Copyright © 2013 Adaptrum, Inc. RadComms 2013 20 www.adaptrum.com FINAL THOUGHTS! • Incumbents and new entrants alike can both find ways to fill in the broadband gaps. • There seems to be a “Broadband Per Capita” race. • Will there be “Spectrum Accountability” at the Country level? • We all want greater speeds, better coverage, and lower cost per “Megabit/Gigabit.” Harvard’s Mr. Benkler. • It appears ACMA missed the “hype cycle” on TVWS but should take another look at it now.
