Alex orange digital dividend and other spectrum issues

  1. 1. Communicasia2010 Summit “Next Generation Mobile Broadband” Singapore, Thursday 17 June 2010Digital Dividend and Other Spectrum Issues Alex Orange for UMTS Forum
  2. 2. UMTS Forum 2010 key focus areas Key focus areas Spectrum & Regulation Global Broadband/LTE Ecosystem Advice to industry and administrations on Study of LTE in conjunction with the Digital Home 3G/LTE licensing & regulation and Consumer Electronics Global spectrum and spectrum arrangements for Roadmap and competitive benefits for HSPA, LTE UMTS/IMT-2000 and beyond and IMT-Advanced Key Growth Markets Studies and workshops on mobile broadband Promotion of the use of mobile service allocations and technical choices and Digital Dividend Main activities Studies, Reports and White papers Communication and Promotion Visibility and participation at conferences, Relationships with regulators, administrations, exhibitions, seminars and workshops international media and financial community Contributions to international organizations (ITU, EC, CEPT/ECC, 3GPP) Partnerships with international bodies (ETSI, NGMN, GSMA, ICU, COAI, APT, 3GAs…)

  7. 7. Mobile Broadband Spectrum Bandwidth Deployment Options1 US/Canada Europe FDD Blocks/ 5 10 20 700, 850 MHz 800, 900 MHz 1.7/2.1, 1.9, 2.5 GHz 1.8, 1.9/2.1, 2.5 GHz Spectrum band MHz MHz MHz Asia-Pacific 450, 700, 850, 900 MHz 1.7, 1.8, 1.9/2.1, 2.3, 2.5 GHz 2.5/2.6 GHz2 2.1 GHz (1.7 or 1.9 uplink) 1.5, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9 GHz Latin America450, 700, 850, 900 MHz1.7/2.1, 1.8, 1.9, 2.5 GHz 900 MHz Africa & Middle E. 450, 800, 850, 900 MHz 1.8, 1.9/2.1, 2.5 GHz 800/850 MHz 1Usablespectrum blocks for product implementation. 2IMT extension 2500 to 2690 MHz, 70 MHz+70 MHz FDD in most countries. 3Digital dividend; Region 1 (Europe, Middle East and Africa) 790-862 MHz, Digital Dividend3 Region 2 (Americas) 698-806 MHz. Region 3 (Asia) – some 698-790 MHz (e.g. China, India, Japan, (700 to 800 MHz) Bangladesh, Korea, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines and Singapore) others 790-806 MHz
  8. 8. The Digital Dividend The dividend is once in a lifetime opportunity UHF Analogue TV is being replaced by Digital TV Digital TV is spectrally more efficient than analogue TV After digital switch over Digital TV spectrum can be reorganised and restacked – freeing spectrum The freed spectrum is the digital dividend Spectrum below 1 GHz (470 to 862 MHz) is suited for coverage Given that digital TV is many times more efficient than analogue, what is the amount of spectrum that could be made available for mobile?
  9. 9. The case for a Mobile Dividend• Economic Studies show if the dividend is mobile: • Australia: a net benefit of $7 -10 billion generated1 • Europe: €63 - €165 billion generated2• Social Benefits (non-exhaustive) • Mobile Healthcare • Education and distance learning • Mobile Commerce and advertising • Mobile Entertainment and enhanced multimedia • Social Networking 1 Getting the most out of the digital dividend in Australia, Spectrum Value Partners /Venture Consulting April 2009 2 Getting the most out of the digital dividend, Spectrum Value Partners March 2008

Aligns with US 7 MHz TV channel raster2. Accommodates US policy objectives (PS, GPS, Mobile TV)i.e. is tailored to suit the US environment
  11. 11. European band plan LTE BTS to DVB-TTV channel 60 791-796 796- 801 801-806 806- 811 811-816 816- 821 821 - 832 832- 837 837- 842 842- 847 847- 852 852- 857 857- 862782-790 Duplex Downlink gap Uplink 30 MHz (6 blocks of 5 MHz) 11 MHz 30 MHz (6 blocks of 5 MHz) DVB-T to LTE device Considerations: 1. Different ITU-R spectrum allocations to Asia Pacific 2. Different spectrum utilisation to Asia Pacific 3. Accommodates ITU GE06 agreement i.e. optimised for the European environment
  12. 12. Asia Pacific• ITU Region 3 (Asia Pacific) Mobile Allocation is 470 – 960 MHz• 9 Asian Pacific nations identified 698 – 806 MHz for IMT*• New Zealand, Australia announced mobile digital dividend• Japan desire to harmonise• New Zealand, Australia transition to DTV underway• Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea DTV planned Multi-lateral Asia Pacific band planning is currently underway in APT Wireless Forum* Bangladesh, China, Korea (Rep. of), India, Japan, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines and Singapore
  13. 13. AWF band plan• AWF Recommendation/Report due in September 2010• Ratification by APT Management in December 2010• Current status: • FDD (2 x 45 MHz) and TDD option • Duplex, centre band gap, guard bands being developed
  14. 14. Benefits of harmonised Asia Pacific band plan• Tailored for Asia Pacific by Asia Pacific• Economies of Scale, Asia Pacific region = 2/3 world’s pop.• Maximum Spectrum Efficiency• Eases Cross border interference• Provides alternative for other parts of world
  15. 15. Summary• Demand for broadband is increasing rapidly• Harmonised Spectrum required to meet demand & economic goals• US and European plans not tailored for Asia Pacific• Asia Pacific Plan (698 – 806 MHz)
