The regulatory approach to spectrum management at a national level must aim to balance the merits of both the individual and common usage modes of spectrum use.
Most countries will require up to 500MHz of new spectrum bandwidth to accommodate growth in mobile broadband applications in the next ten years. One of the measures that operators, regulators and others in the mobile industry are discussing is dynamic spectrum access (DSA) - the allocation and use of spectrum as needed on a shared basis between multiple users. In this report, we consider how to implement DSA, and the benefits and challenges of doing so.
This Report provides an examination of:
We also report on the challenges that are hindering the implementation of DSA schemes, including:
