a word of caution
A word of caution

This part of presentation provides a set of modern best SM practice advices. It is thus an idealistic vision, the implementation of which would require careful consideration and gradual approach!

ITU Regional Workshop, Amman, 5-7 Dec 2011

transparency of sm operations
Transparency of SM operations
  • Aim:
    • Promote transparent, non-discriminatory, economically efficient and effective spectrum management policies, that provide regulatory certainty
  • Means:
    • Carrying out public consultations on SM policies and procedures:
      • before changing national frequency allocation plans; and
      • before making SM decisions likely to affect service providers.
    • Publication on the regulator’s website:
      • forecasts of spectrum usage and allocation needs
      • frequency allocation plans
      • frequency register that gives an overview of assigned spectrum rights, vacant spectrum, and licence-free spectrum, taking into account any need for confidentiality and public security
    • Clearly defining and publishing, on the regulator’s website and in a gazette:
      • radio frequency spectrum users’ rights and obligations
      • licensing and authorisation rules and procedures

technology neutrality
Technology Neutrality
  • Aim:
    • Maximize innovation, create conditions for the development of new services, reduce investment risks and stimulate competition among different technologies
  • Means:
    • Adopting decisions that are technologically neutral and which allow for evolution of new radio applications
    • Giving industry the freedom and flexibility to deploy their choice of technologies and decide on the most appropriate technology in their commercial interest
    • Ensuring that similar applications offered by different radiocommunication services (e.g. fixed and mobile) are not subject to disparate regulatory treatment
    • Ensuring that bands are not allocated for the exclusive use of particular services and that spectrum allocations are free of technology and service constraints, as far as possible

ITU Regional Workshop, Amman, 5-7 Dec 2011

flexible spectrum use policies
Flexible spectrum use policies
  • Aim:
    • Introduce policies leading to flexible spectrum use so as to promote innovation and allow for the evolution of services and technologies, facilitate entry into market of new competitors
  • Means:
    • Minimizing barriers to entry and providing incentives for small market players by allowing them to begin operations on a small scale at very low cost, without onerous rollout conditions, to enable them gain experience and test market demand for various services
    • Adopting lighter regulations in rural areas, such as flexible regulation of power levels, the use of specialized antennas, the use of simple authorizations, lower spectrum fees
    • Recognizing that in markets where spectrum scarcity is an issue, the introduction of spectrum trading can in some cases foster innovation and free-up spectrum for new applications
    • Finding right balance of licence-exempt and licensed spectrum, balancing the desire to foster innovation with the need to control congestion and interference. One measure that could be envisaged is, for example, to allow small operators to start operations using licence-exempt spectrum, and then move to licensed spectrum when the business case is proved

ITU Regional Workshop, Amman, 5-7 Dec 2011

timely availability of spectrum
Timely availability of spectrum
  • Aim:
    • Facilitate timely introduction of appropriate new applications and technology, while protecting existing services from harmful interference
  • Means:
    • Ensuring that operators have as wide a choice as possible of the spectrum they may access, and releasing spectrum to the market as soon as possible
    • When appropriate, provide a mechanism to allow compensation for systems that must re-deploy for new spectrum needs (re-farming funds)
    • Where spectrum is scarce, promote spectrum sharing, including using interference mitigation techniques and economic incentives, to the extent practicable
    • Make all available spectrum bands for offer, subject to overall national strategic spectrum master-plans, in order that prices are not pushed up due to restrictive supply and limited amount of spectrum made available
    • Special research or pilot testing authorisations could be issued to promote the development of innovative wireless technologies
    • Consider creating incentives scheme to promote efficient co-existence/sharing of bands by governmental & non-governmental users

ITU Regional Workshop, Amman, 5-7 Dec 2011

international harmonisation
International harmonisation
  • Aim:
    • Align domestic spectrum policies with internationally recommended, in order to achieve faster take-up of new bands and economies of scale
  • Means:
    • Adopting harmonised frequency plans defined by ITU-R and regional bodies in order to facilitate the implementation of competition
    • Working in collaboration with regional and other international colleagues to develop coordinated regulatory practices
    • Removing any regulatory barriers to free circulation and global roaming of mobile terminals, SRDs and similar radiocommunication equipment
    • Using internationally recommended data formats and data elements for exchange of data and coordination purposes
    • Utilising regional and international standards whenever possible, and where appropriate, reflecting them in national standards
    • Relying to the extent possible on industry standards including those that are included in ITU Recommendations in lieu of national regulations

ITU Regional Workshop, Amman, 5-7 Dec 2011

efficient sm organisation
Efficient SM Organisation
  • Aim:
    • To achieve efficient SM on both short-term and long-term basis, allocate spectrum in an economic and efficient manner, and by relying on market forces, economic incentives and technical innovations
  • Means:
    • Speedy processing of frequency applications, smooth running of SM process
    • Computer-assisted frequency assignment: technical database, interference calculation models, digital terrain information
    • Computer-assisted frequency coordination: compatible with ITU tools such as BR-IFIC and common data exchange with neighbouring countries
    • Computer-assisted spectrum monitoring: spectrum monitoring databases, plans for regular monitoring and inspection
    • Computer-assisted licensing: administrative database integrated with frequency assignment, licence records, billing and fee collection
    • Active participation in ITU forums and regional organisations

ITU Regional Workshop, Amman, 5-7 Dec 2011

affordability of spectrum access
Affordability of spectrum access
  • Aim:
    • Reducing financial barriers and promoting development of wireless technologies
  • Means:
    • Apply reasonable spectrum fees for wireless technologies to foster the provision of innovative services at affordable prices, and minimise costs that may become barriers to entry for new operators
    • Assist the economic viability of wireless technologies in rural and under-served areas through targeted application of reduced costs of access to spectrum
    • Auctions and tender processes can also be managed to meet these goals

ITU Regional Workshop, Amman, 5-7 Dec 2011

ensuring level playing field
Ensuring level playing field
  • Aim:
    • Ensure that all wireless players have equitable and fair access to spectrum resources
  • Means:
    • Assure open and fair competition in the marketplaces for equipment and services, and constantly work on removing any identified barriers that arise to open and fair competition
    • Remove any regulatory barriers to free circulation and global roaming of mobile terminals, SRDs and similar radiocommunication equipment
    • Remove any preferential treatment of domestic technologies/operators, allow free play for global communications technologies, such as satellite communications
    • To prevent spectrum hoarding, especially by incumbents, regulators can set a limit on the maximum amount of spectrum that each operator can obtain

ITU Regional Workshop, Amman, 5-7 Dec 2011

ensuring efficient spectrum use
Ensuring efficient spectrum use
  • Aim:
    • Ensure most efficient use of limited spectrum resource through elimination of instances of inefficient use or hoarding of assigned spectrum
  • Means:
    • Establish clear metrics for measuring the efficiency of spectrum utilisation by operators/users and apply them regularly
    • Make an attempt to set economic value to the spectrum, so that more economically efficient use of spectrum could become a factor in decision making
    • Perform independent regular audits of spectrum use, especially by “non-commercial” services, such as governmental/military users and other similar users who are not subject to incentive pricing
    • Provide swift and effective enforcement of spectrum management policies and regulations
