  • We’re entering an exciting era for Cognitive TechnologiesA driving need for more wireless data capacity is pushing regulators to look at sharingTVWS is a vital first step
  • Hockey sticks at the ready!UK Smartphone sales are expected to grow from 43% of total mobile phone sales in 2009to 84% by 2013 [1]; Forecast that 100% of smartphones will include WiFi connectivity by2012 (compared with 60% in 2009)
  • Regulators need to think of three basic usage models – WPAN and WWAN are reasonable well catered-for – not so WLANWhite spaces are key to having wireless connectivity that complements NGA and increasing in-home use of HD content
  • Complementary models of access support a richer ecosystem of applications and promote ubiquitous Internet accessFor example, Wi-Fi generates an estimated value of $4.3 - 12.6 billion/year1 using shared access
  • Gaining support from regulators and existing users, geo-location seems key to applications in US and Europe in the near/medium turnStrictly this is not cognitive, simply an automated way of looking up spectrum assignment tables
  • Complement IDA on forward thinking

    The need for a more nimble spectrum framework
  • Finding spectrum capacity for three usage models
    ?
    WWAN
    2G
    3G
    4G
    WLAN
    Wi-Fi
    White Spaces
    WPAN
    Bluetooth
    UWB
    Wi-Gig
    Distance from the fibre
    The need for a more nimble spectrum framework
  • Flexibility with certainty
    Supports central infrastructure investment
    Enables infrastructure investment by end users
    Inclusive
    Hybrid
    Exclusive
    Provides greater service quality predictability when demand is high
    Provides scope for innovation
    Enables coexistence of multiple users/applications
    The need for a more nimble spectrum framework
  • Use a database
    Coordinating spectrum use through a database brings major benefits
    This deterministic approach provides:
    Predictable capacity to white space device users
    Reassurance to licensees
    Flexibility for regulators to retain control

    The need for a more nimble spectrum framework
  • Wi-Fi , 5 GHz
    This slide shows the results of simulating the coverage that could be achieved, with 20% access point penetration, in a 1 km2 dense urban area in Fulham, London. The simulation was repeated for each of the three bands
    Wi-Fi , 2.4 GHz
    TV White Spaces – 600 MHz
    Source: BT Innovate & Design
    Sub 1 GHz is key to ubiquitous access
    The need for a more nimble spectrum framework
  • Summary
    The need for more nimble spectrum regulation becomes clearer
    Sharing spectrum is the only realistic way to radically increase capacity, for all user groups
    TV White spaces are the first major opportunity for sharing, with potential to further universal broadband access and help wireless innovation

  • Speaker Bio
    Andrew Stirling heads up spectrum regulatory policy for Microsoft in the UK and Europe.
    As an ex-regulator, he has significant insights into the issues around digital TV switchover and spectrum management
    He leads Microsoft’s participation in UK and European proceedings on TV White Spaces.
    He also facilitates cooperation with Dell, Google and Philips in this key area
