3 Introduction Spectrum is a finite and scarce but non- exhaustible natural resource which is a vital input for wireless services Rapid development of wireless technology has ensured that there is an increasing range of valuable uses of the spectrum With competing users, uses and growth of wireless services, the demand for spectrum has tremendously increased. The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 3

4 Introduction The trend of modern communications is towards mobility, with increasingly higher data rates/ speeds, for which wireless is the only option The requirements of captive applications are also growing. All these have resulted in greater demands/ pressure on the already scarce RF spectrum resource The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 4

5 Introduction Shortage of spectrum will be setback to innovations, competition, businesses and consumers. Making spectrum available at a time when convergence is causing rapid and unpredictable change poses a severe challenge. Advances in technology create the potential for systems to use spectrum more efficiently and to be much more tolerant of interference than in the past. The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 5

6 Introduction With the availability of higher data speeds, the user requirements are also continually increasing wrt: – different services and applications, – expecting a dynamic, continuing stream of new capabilities that are ubiquitous and available across a range of devices using a single subscription and a single identity. Requirement for new radio access technologies to satisfy the anticipated demands for higher bandwidth services is increasing. IMT and IMT-Advanced technologies are the answers to these requirements The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 6

7 IMT and IMT-Advanced Technologies LTE, LTE Advanced and Wireless MAN- Advanced, are designed to enable high speed Internet/Broadband at anytime, anywhere. These systems facilitate higher bandwidth, higher data rate and support higher level of user-level customization. As per ITU for IMT-Advanced technologies, the targeted peak data rates are up to 100 Mbit/s for high mobility and up to 1 Gbit/s for low mobility scenario. Scalable bandwidths up to at least 40 MHz should be provided The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 7

8 IMT-Advanced Technologies-Key Features High degree of commonality of functionality worldwide while retaining the flexibility to support a wide range of services and applications in a cost efficient manner; compatibility of services within IMT and with fixed networks; capability of interworking with other radio access systems; high quality mobile services; User equipment suitable for worldwide use; User-friendly applications, services and equipment; Worldwide roaming capability; 8

9 LTE and LTE-Advanced Technologies The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 9

10 LTE and LTE-Advanced Technologies LTE and Wimax technologies are available since 2009/2006. Current versions are called LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN Advanced respectively. Qualifies IMT-advanced technologies make use of same key technologies: – Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDMA) – Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and – System Architecture Evolution (SAE) The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 10

11 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) Uses multiple transmitter and receiver antennas, which allow independent channels to be created in space. Various Approaches for MIMO: – Space diversity:- to improve the communication reliability by decreasing the sensitivity to fading by picking up multiple copies of the same signal at different locations in space. – Beamforming :- antenna elements are used to adjust the strength of the transmitted and received signals, based on their direction for focusing of energy. – Spatial Multiplexing:- Increased capacity, reliability, coverage, reduction in power requirement by introducing additional spatial channels that are exploited by using space- time coding The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 11

12 Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) Based on the idea of dividing a given high-bit-rate data stream into several parallel lower bit-rate streams and modulating each stream on separate carrier – often called sub-carriers or tones. Multi-carrier modulation scheme minimize inter-symbol interference (ISI) by making the symbol time large enough so that the channel-induced delays are an insignificant (<10%) fraction of the symbol duration. The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 12

13 Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) OFDM is a spectrally efficient version of multi-carrier modulation where the sub-carriers are selected such that they are all orthogonal to one another over the symbol duration, thereby avoiding the need to have non overlapping sub-carrier channels to eliminate inter- carrier interference. Guard intervals are used between OFDM symbols. By making the guard intervals larger than the expected multi-path delay spread, ISI can be completely eliminated The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 13

14 Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) OFDM can be used as a multi-access scheme, where the available sub-carriers may be divided into several groups of sub-carriers called sub-channels. Different sub channels may be allocated to different users as a multiple access mechanism. This type of multi access scheme is called OFDMA. OFDMA is essentially a hybrid of FDMA and TDMA. Users are dynamically assigned sub-carriers (FDMA) in different time slots (TDMA). OFDMA is a flexible multiple access technique that can accommodate many users with widely varying applications, data rates and QoS requirements.

26 Challenges posed by technologies like LTE in spectrum management The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 26 Identification of common spectrum bands – Common to SATRC Countries for Ubiquitous roaming – identify the availability of large chunk of spectrum in the identified bands Spectrum management planning, allocation, allotment and regulations of frequency bands – to determine the use or uses that would best serve the public and government interest

27 Challenges posed by technologies like LTE in spectrum management The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 27 – to tackle the transmissions interference unless the user frequencies are sufficiently separated in terms of frequency, geography or time – co-ordination with neighbouring countries, to mitigate the extent of harmful interference – need to strike a balance between reducing the extent of harmful interference, through careful planning, and enabling new and potentially valuable new services to enter the market

28 Challenges posed by technologies like LTE in spectrum management The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 28 Frequency assignment and licensing – Traditional methods poses many challenges in terms of time, technological progress and the delivery of services, thus causing inefficient utilization of this precious resource. – to assign spectrum to those who value it the most and are able to utilize rationally and efficiently

29 Challenges posed by technologies like LTE in spectrum management The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 29 Responsive to change – to devise procedures to ration current and future demand for radio spectrum between competing commercial and public service users – it would require a detailed knowledge of supply and demand trends, technology developments, and the relative value to society of alternative services – accumulation and assimilation of sufficient information to make a correct assignment of spectrum to optimise use over time

30 Recommendations The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 30

31 Recommendations to overcome challenges The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 31 Audit the spectrum held by various agencies viz Govt agencies, telecom/broadcasting operators to see if they are employing spectrum efficient techniques. Refarm the spectrum – Shift the existing users to other bands or they may be asked to start new technologies in the same band i.e. 2G spectrum bands may be refarmed for its usage for IMT or IMT advanced application and the operators may be asked to switch over to the new bands or it can be done after expiry of their validity of license.

32 Recommendations to overcome challenges The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 32 Refarm the spectrum – to permit the existing users to use the existing band for IMT advanced services however they may be required to pay to the Govt or regulator the balance the price they already have paid and the price which can be discovered using auction methodology or market driven mechanism. Change the traditional way of spectrum planning and engineering:- Taking into consideration the interest of the operators and revenue to the Govt. The spectrum should be assigned to those operators who value it the most.

33 Recommendations to overcome challenges The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka 33 Spectrum sharing and trading:- Spectrum sharing, trading and spectrum pooling are some of the ways to efficiently utilize the available spectrum. In the developed countries spectrum trading and sharing is permitted in some of the spectrum bands. In light of new developments, this aspects has to be relooked into. Exploring the new bands: new bands may be explored either for the telecom applications or for the application which are running in the bands meant for the telecom applications, so that other applications can be shifted to these bands and bands for the telecom applications may be made available for the telecom applications.

34 Conclusions As it is clear that new technologies are posing challenges to the world at large and SATRC countries in particular. There is a need to face the challenges posed by the new technologies and adopt their policies and planning for the new changes in the environment 34 The Second meeting of SATRC Working Group on Spectrum December 2011 Colombo, Sri Lanka
