Ofcom consultation wants to know what the radiocommunications industry would like to do with frequencies about to be released, and ATDI is showing spectrum users how to get the most from the potential new resources.
Regulator Ofcom is in the middle of a consultation exercise asking for industry input into how
spectrum in the 2.3 – 3.4 GHz band should be used once it is released by the Ministry of Defence. Ofcom’s consultation document is here.
To demonstrate the potential of the frequencies, ATDI is mounting a webinar on Friday, April 4 where all aspects of their possible use and technical limitations will be discussed.
“This event will inform the debate,” says ATDI managing director Peter Paul, “enabling network operators to structure their plans once the frequencies are up for auction. Potential users need to understand how to get the most out of this spectrum, and this webinar will address that.”
New spectrum resources are always hugely valuable, and never more so than now when pressure on frequencies is more intense. “But, the trick is to ensure the new spectrum does its job, particularly when it is adjacent to the frequencies the MoD is retaining and will continue to use,” Peter notes, adding: “ATDI has been conducting such spectrum engineering and planning for two decades and has worked with the MoD throughout that time. Our engineers are in the ideal position to understand the problems, find the solutions and liaise with all the relevant parties.”
