law of 5 march 2007 three inter related undertakings
Law of 5 March 2007 : Three inter-related undertakings

1. Extension of digital terrestrial television broadcating

  • Géographic extension of the 5 existing multiplexes (from 85% to 95% population coverage)
  • New multiplexes (HDTV, Mobile television)
  • Currently carried out on transitory frequencies

2. Digital switchover

  • Analog switchoff and DTT switch to target frequency plan
  • National switchover scheme by areas to be adopted by the Prime Minister
  • Detailed plan (area by area, program by program, transmiter by transmiter) to be definied by the boradcasting authority (CSA) 9 month at the latest prior to actual implementation in the area
  • Completion date of analog switchoff : 30 November 2011

3. Digital dividend

  • Defined as the spectrum released by analog switchoff
  • Digital dividend allocation scheme to be adopted by the Prime Minister for use by 1st December 2011
  • After consulation of the Parliamentary committee on digital dividend
  • Majority of digital dividend for broadcasting

Report of the Parliamentary Committee (23 July 2008) www.dividende-numerique.fr
  • The majority of digital dividend should be allocated to enrich digital audiovisual services offering
    • The requirements of the audiovisual sector may be met in channels 21-60, which may accommodate 11 DVB-T networks and 2 DVB-H networks.
    • Future authorisations for HDTV DTT will need to be coupled with a significant content obligation for native HDTV.
    • Band III should be dedicated to digital sound broadcasting.
  • The band 790-862 MHz should be allocated entirely to electronic mobile communications
    • This allocation should be coupled with coverage obligations (99% of the territory), national roaming and net-neutrality obligations, and financing of the spectrum refarming operations necessary to make the band available (relocation of Defense and Broadcasting)

c) The digital dividend should be used rapidly and effectively

    • The Prime Minister should take, by summer 2008, a joint decision on the digital dividend allocation scheme and the switchover scheme, in a consistent way.
    • The Prime Minister should give mandate to ANFR for negotiating with neighbouring countries the required changes to the GE-06 Plan.
    • France should promote a harmonised use of the band 790-862 MHz.

Decisions of the French government: France digital plan 201220 October 2008http://francenumerique2012.fr

 Sucessfully carry out digital switchover by 2012:

  • Three initial experiments : Coulommiers, Kaysersberg and Cherbourg
  • Switchover in Alsace by end-2009, followed by Eastern regions (Lorraine, Champagne-Ardenne and Franche-Comté),
  • In parallel, switchover in Western regions (Basse-Normandie, Pays de la Loire and Bretagne) by first half of 2010.
  • Analog switchoff to be completed by 30 November 2011
  • Allow all French population to receive digital programs and mobile television (encourage satellite service offerings)

 Free spectrum resources for new broadcasting services:

  • The majority of the digital dividend is kept by broadcasting
    • To complete DTT deployment in UHF band by 30 November 2011,
    • Deploy new services : HDTV and Mobile television
  • Objective : 11 multiplexes for fixed DTT (95 % population) and 2 multiplexes for mobile television (70 % population).
  • Band III allocation to Broadcasting entirely maintained, to be used for sound broadcasting.

  • Allocate the entire sub-band 790-862 MHz for the coverage of the French territory by new generation, very high speed, fixed and mobile networks
  • Study the potential use of “white spaces” of DTT broadcasting by other applications
  • Seek a coordinated approach of the digital dividend at European level

Digital dividend for broadcasting
  • Broadcasting retains 89% of its allocations in the UHF band and seeks for quasi doubling the number of multiplexes on air
  • Broadcasting retains 100% of its allocations in the VHF bands, for sound broadcasting only (T-DMB).
  • Adjustments of the GE-06 plan is therefore necessary to define the target frequency plan on which DTT is going to be transferred as switchover progressed throughout the territory.
  • This will require a reduction of the frequency reuse distance:
    • Optimised transmit antennas
    • Increased use of SFNs
    • Additional transmit sites to «wipe off » interference

  • Negociate with neighbouring administrations, on an equitable basis, the frequency resources necessary for :
    • Updated broadcasting requirements : 11 MUX TNT and 2 MUX TMP
    • Switchover the 6 existing multiplexes at the dates foreseen in the national scheme, in the 470-790 MHz band
    • Permit the use of the band 790-862MHz by mobile services
  • Actively pursue a coordinated approach of the use of the sub-band 790-862 MHz throughout Europe.
