Spectrum ManagementJanuary 00, 2005


Course objectives l.jpg
Course Objectives

  • To educate the Public Safety Wireless Administrator with Spectrum Management issues such as:

    • To determine sufficient spectrum resources required to meet the present and future needs of the organization.

    • To develop strategies to acquire the needed spectrum resources.

    • To process the necessary paperwork to obtain the spectrum licenses from the FCC.

    • To ensure frequency licenses are adequately administered.


Lesson plan l.jpg
Lesson Plan

  • Define Wireless Spectrum

  • Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

  • Universal License System (ULS)

  • ULS Home Page

  • License Search

  • Role of APCO in Applying for a License


Wireless spectrum l.jpg
Wireless Spectrum

  • Complete range of frequencies that can be used for wireless communications.

  • Public Safety allocations are scattered in discrete bands across the spectrum.

  • FCC manages spectrum allocation.


Slide5 l.jpg
FCC

  • Rules and Regulations

    • Develops policies and implements regulations in response to petitions from industry and the public.

  • Licensing

    • Organizes and manages the complete range of frequencies that can be used for wireless communications.

    • Refarming – making more efficient use of the Radio Spectrum currently in use.

Apco services l.jpg
APCO Services

  • Early Project Radio Frequency (RF) Assessment and Engineering

  • Accurate and Complete Application Preparation

  • Fast, Efficient, Accurate Frequency Coordination Process.


Rf engineering l.jpg
RF Engineering

  • Review searches for a single frequency or a range of frequencies within any given band frequencies based on location and distance for land mobile radio.

  • Produce advanced RF coverage and interference plots.

  • Experienced and qualified engineering staff in frequency coordination and interpreting FCC rules and regulations


License preparation l.jpg
License Preparation

  • Operates its own computerized and integrated Form 601 system and process to ensure accuracy and speed.

  • Staff experienced in application preparation and processing:

    • FCC ULS Policies and Procedures

    • FCC Licensing

    • Knowledge of FCC Rules and Regulations

    • Knowledge of the Coordination Process.


Frequency coordination l.jpg
Frequency Coordination

  • FCC mandates the license application must obtain certification from an FCC designated frequency coordinator in your radio service area.

  • Public Safety agencies can not apply directly to the FCC to modify or add frequencies.

  • FCC has certified APCO to perform the coordination process to choose appropriate frequencies for land mobile radio systems.
