900 MHz band review. Presentation by Bridget Lally, Senior Radiocommunications Engineer, Spectrum Engineering Section, ACMA

  1. 1. Review of the 803 to960 MHz bandBridget Lally, Senior RadiocommunicationsEngineer, Spectrum Infrastructure Branch,
  2. 2. Outline> Overview of the 820-960 MHz band> Drivers and scope of the review> Major issues in first discussion paper > Potential for 800 MHz band expansion > Review of arrangements for the digital cellular mobile telephone service > Options for underutilised parts of the 900 MHz band
  3. 3. The 900 MHz band: Exploring newopportunities discussion paper
  4. 4. Why review the 803-960 MHz band?> Parts of the band are underused> Opportunities for expansion of services due to digital dividend> Migration to 3G and 4G and international ‘refarming’ of digital CMTS segments
  5. 5. Proposed objectives of the review>  improve the allocative, technical and dynamic efficiency of arrangements in the band by reviewing the relevant planning and licensing mechanisms>  align planning, licensing and pricing arrangements with current and anticipated demands, and support the latest technologies>  incorporate spectrum in the upper part of the digital dividend, which is not being included in the initial 700 MHz band allocation, in order to expand services in the 900 MHz band>  improve the utility and flexibility with which the band is used.
  6. 6. New naming convention…
