  4. 4. APT Wireless Group (AWG)Background! Terms of Reference: §  Share and discuss information of emerging radio technologies, stimulate research and development, and promote related telecommunication business within the Asia-Pacific region §  Pursue effective solutions in the Asia-Pacific region to meet the rapid movements towards digital convergence §  Provide regular channels to discuss and study spectrum sharing methodologies, spectrum harmonization and to provide advice that countries can use in frequency band planning §  Develop technical and radio regulatory solutions based on emerging and conventional wireless technologies including satellite technologies to meet APT members needs! Current AWG structure includes three main working groups: §  Spectrum §  Technology §  Services & Applications 4
  5. 5. APT AWG 700 MHz Band Plan DevelopmentProcess and timeline! March 2008 - Spectrum Working Group initiated study of the UHF Digital Dividend, with the aim of developing a harmonized band plan §  Direct result of WRC-07 decision to identify spectrum for IMT! September 2010 - Finalized work on the new 700 MHz band plan(s) §  APT Report 14: Harmonized Frequency Arrangements for the Band 698-806 MHz §  Consensus Agreement! September 2011 - Finalized work on 2nd Report providing guidance on mobile user equipment out- of-band emission levels to facilitate co-existence with adjacent band broadcast TV services §  APT Report 24: Implementation Issues Associated with Use of the Band 698 – 806 MHz by Mobile Services! Process was deliberate §  Developed over 2.5 year period with considerable technical study by industry and governments §  Gathered views of APT members through information survey §  Prepared interim report with candidate band plan proposals – up to eight §  Focused technical studies on candidate band plans §  Set up technical correspondence group to work between meetings and analyze proposals §  Held technical seminars to further vet studies! High degree of cooperation among industry stakeholders (governments, vendors, operators, associations) was key 5
  6. 6. APT Work is CompleteReport 14: Harmonized Frequency Arrangements for the Band 698-806 MHz*! FDD band plan §  2 x 45 MHz from 703-748 / 758-803 MHz – likely to require dual duplexer implementation §  Conventional duplex – minimizes harmonic interference into GNSS/GPS §  Internal guardband from 698-703 MHz and 803-806 MHz – facilitates co-existence with other services DTTV PPDR/LMR 694 698 806 MHz MHz MHz! TDD band plan §  Internal guardbands similar to that of FDD band plan * Source: http://www.apt.int/AWF-RECREP 6
  7. 7. APT Work is CompleteReport 24: Implementation Issues Associated with Use of the Band 698 – 806 MHz by Mobile Services*! APT Report 24 provides guidance on UE out-of-band emission levels: §  “Considering technical and economic factors associated with UE equipment, it was concluded that the average out of band emissions of IMT UE, measured over the bandwidth of the applicable television channel in the country of deployment, must not exceed -34 dBm/MHz below 694 MHz “! No guidance in Report 24 on the UE out-of-band emission levels from 694 MHz to 698 MHz. Instead, APT deferred any decision on this to the 3GPP standards development due to the technological advances in filter technology. * Source: http://www.apt.int/AWF-RECREP 7
  8. 8. ITU-R Work on APT 700 MHz Band Plan is Complete! Band allocated to the mobile service many years ago §  See Article 5 of the ITU Radio Regulations for Region 3!

Work item will be submitted for closure to the 3PP RAN4 Plenary this week in Slovenia (13-15 June 2012). Technical aspects: §  The 36.101 CR is in R4-123696 §  Emission limits to reduce the risk of harmonic interference into RNSS/GPS devices (inter-device coexistence) would not be specified in 36.101 but included in the Technical Report (TR) as a working assumption R4-123605! 3GPP members who supported work item include: same list as Band 28! Not as much focus and attention on TDD studies as there was on FDD studies 10

  17. 17. Observations and Recommendations! APT 700 MHz FDD band plan represents best opportunity for Asia Pac regional spectrum harmonization! Harmonized band plans deliver economies of scale which drive down device cost! Opportunities for multi-regional harmonization! APT 700 MHz FDD (full 2 x 45 MHz) potential for largest addressable market! Design maximizes amount of usable spectrum for mobile services (2x45MHz) and is the most efficient use of scarce and valuable spectrum resources! Momentum on APT 700 MHz FDD band plan is strong and increasing! Operation of APT 700 MHz FDD (Band 28) together with extended-850 MHz (Band 27), 850 MHz (Band 5), 900 MHz (Band 8) provides a highly efficient use of spectrum resources below 1 GHz 18
  18. 18. Policy Support Needed From Governments! Provide a roadmap with clear timelines for UHF Digital Dividend spectrum availability so that interested stakeholders have the certainty needed to plan networks and investments! Make policy decision to allocate 698-806 MHz spectrum to the mobile service at the national level! Make policy decision to harmonize frequency usage with the APT 700 MHz 2 x 45 MHz band plan! Accelerate transition from analog to digital broadcast TV services in 700 MHz band which will free up the spectrum for its highest value use – mobile broadband! Let industry stakeholders know how we can best support you in developing the regulatory and spectrum policy frameworks 19
