Microsoft Webinar: Evolving Trends in Spectrum Management

Today’s global economy is driven, in part by broadband connectivity and the services provided through it. Increasingly that connectivity is wireless. Additionally, innovations in sensor technologies and the Internet of Things are creating additional demand for high-performance wireless connections. These trends affect the spectrum allocation and management systems globally. Regulators strive to simultaneously ensure existing services are free from harmful interference and can deliver reliable services, and facilitate more rapid entry of new services that also require spectrum.

Advances in technology are now making spectrum sharing and reuse possible, creating greater efficiencies and facilitating solutions to some of the more intractable connectivity challenges in the world. This course will provide an overview of these technologies, techniques, and applications; including dynamic spectrum sharing, database management, use of white spaces, and tiered access. The course will offer a review of new regulatory models that some countries have introduced to accelerate progress in this area and compare different technical rules that have been implemented to date using case studies.

Learning Objectives:

This course will introduce key concepts and principles intended to benefit countries seeking to understand the changing technical landscape, evolve their spectrum management strategies, as well as those who are in the process of updating their current plans. Key topics covered include
• What is Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA)
• What are the key technologies that enable DSA, how do they differ, when should they be used;
• Existing lessons learned through deployment of DSA solutions
• Methods to protect incumbent services including databases, sensing, and hybrid approaches to DSA
• Recommendations for a balanced forward-looking spectrum management policy
• A review of several case-studies including TV White Space, CBRS, and 6 GHz Wi-Fi.
