1 1 Introduction to Data on PMR Mark Redman BSc(Eng) CEng MIEE Radiocommunications Agency, UK

2 2 What is today about? Making the best use of Spectrum to support PMR Data Services To review the Licensing Arrangements of PMR Data Services To Review the Policy surrounding PMR Data Services (IR2008) To look to the future of PMR Data Services regarding Technology (higher bit rates/DMR)

3 3 PMR/PAMR Bands (1) Band I Low Band UHF UHF Mid Band Sub 1 Sub 3 Band III Sub 2 HighBand P1 P3 P UHF1 UHF1 PUBLIC SAFETY UHF Dolphin PAMR (TETRA) 2 x 4MHz Airwave Project +others (TETRA) 2x5MHz Paging

7 7 Overview

8 8 On-site Private Business Radio Licences

9 9 Wide Area PMR Data Licences wide area assignments In 2002, 2.5% use data Data usage is growing steadily

10 10 Bus and Coach

11 11 Taxi and Private Hire

12 12 What is the RA’s view? Using current Analogue techniques - Voice doesn’t share with Data Virtual exclusive channels (IR2008), the way forward with analogue PMR using data to ‘share’ channels politely We support the new Low cost DMR standard being developed within ETSI

13 13 What is the RA’s view? Spectrum - UK desires to meet ECA Table –projects underway to align UHF1 and UHF2 –difficult to align congested bands –extensive existing narrow band usage Market –large base of existing narrow band users –some sectors growing, others declining –overall decline but growth in on site at UHF, wide area data at VHF

14 14 What is the RA’s view? Technology –the future is digital - need to configure spectrum to allow introduction of current generation digital equipment, hence alignment –PMR446 a success, would like to introduce a digital equivalent –No current digital equipment manufactured in VHF, therefore a low priority for alignment (but majority of LM spectrum in VHF)
