  1. Wireless Rapid Deployment of Gbit Links Greg Lock Internet Solutions 29 May 2014

  2. Objective The challenges of rapidly deploying Gbits links Utilisation of mmWave spectrum and equipment Regulatory and licensing considerations

  3. Challenges of rapidly deploying Gbit links • Market demand is for ubiquitous availability of Gbit links • Conventional approach of deploying fibre meets this demand in a growing footprint • Office parks, precincts and other high density areas • Areas immediately adjacent to fibre routes and around other telecoms infrastructure • Extension of the coverage areas is limited by • Cost of laying fibre – driven by per m construction costs • Time to obtain necessary approvals from local authorities and landlords for civil construction • The area around existing fibre footprints can be reached utilising radio technologies • Current licensing regime is both slow and costly • Antennae size for high capacities is not attractive to landlords

  4. Utilisation of mmWave spectrum and equipment • Requirement is for quick, cost-effective deployment of high capacity, localised short distance links • Utilising mmWave spectrum and equipment presents options for rapid extension of the high capacity footprint • FSO can potentially meet the requirement • Equipment costs vs licence cost need to be considered • Short distance extension of fibre footprint rather than high site coverage model • Requirement in secondary towns where local fibre deployment is not viable • Requirement is not necessarily for permanent deployment only • Temporary installation to deliver service while approvals are obtained for fibre build • Initial deployment to service a single customer in an area or building • Stimulates demand making subsequent fibre deployment cost effective due to increased client density

  5. Regulatory and licensing considerations • Current AIP model mitigates against mmWave deployments • Relatively high annual cost • Consideration relative to once off capital cost of alternatives • Promote rapid deployment • Introduce additional frequency bands at lower rates than the current 0.05 • Consider the requirement for both permanent and temporary links • Minimise the “penalty” for temporary deployment • Allocation of frequency in a light touch, self-cordinated licensing regime for links promoting rapid deployment and fibre footprint extension, potentially for temporary installations only • Allocation of frequency for traditional point-to-point applications under a co-ordinated licensing scheme

  6. Closing • Rapid, and cost effective, deployment of Gbit links cannot be achieved by utilising fibre only • mmWave spectrum and equipment present a cost effective option for rapid deployment under a light touch regulatory and licensing regime that takes cognisance of cost and time to deploy
