spectrum policy task force report
Spectrum Policy Task Force Report
  • While the SPTF Report found continued demand for more spectrum; considerable spectrum is available when both space and time are considered
    • Hence SPECTRUM ACCESS is a major issue
  • Report also found that in view of recent impact of Wi-Fi and other unlicensed systems, there is great interest in more spectrum where unlicensed access is facilitated
unlicensed noi
Unlicensed NOI
  • In DEC ‘02 FCC adopted an NOI in Docket

02-380 exploring unlicensed sharing of spectrum in TV bands below 900 MHz

  • Interference could be avoided by:
    • Geographical separation and check of license database, or
    • Listen-before-talk algorithms
unlicensed noi5
Unlicensed NOI
  • There is a relationship between the sensitivity of the listen-before-talk detector, the allowed transmit power, and the probability of interference

(Although there has been little published in this area)

  • FCC 2/12/03 tutorial by John Betz, MITRE Corp., explored “feature detectors”

- sensitive listen-before-talk detectors that are little known in commercial circles

Unlicensed NOI

Can cognitive radio technology be used to improve unlicensed spectrum access while also avoiding harmful interference?

secondary market rulemaking
Secondary Market Rulemaking
  • In Docket 00-230, FCC is considering both short term and long term leasing of spectrum by licensees without case-by-case FCC approval
  • Seen as possible method to improve spectrum efficiency by giving economic incentives to licensees to allow more intensive use
secondary market rulemaking8
Secondary Market Rulemaking
  • Multiyear leases could be done with conventional technology

– lessee just builds new system(s) using leased spectrum

  • Leases in the hours/minutes/seconds range are the subject of today’s discussion

Near Real Time Secondary Market
  • In the electric power industry there is an hour-to-hour market for power exchange
  • Should we remove any barriers to such a market in the commercial spectrum area?
  • Such a market might require:
    • An exchange mechanism to bring buyers and sellers together
    • A standard definition for what is being bought and sold
    • A real time spectrum management monitor to insure compliance

Not subject of today’s discussions

Near Real Time Secondary Market

Cognitive radios and dynamically reconfigurable software radios could provide a means to implement such a spectrum commodity market

Is a near real time secondary market practical and/or desirable?

What present FCC rules and policies inhibit the development of such approaches or create uncertainty for developers?

Should FCC have a role in defining standard interfaces for such information flow and spectrum exchange?
