Talk by Phillipa Marks: Policy approaches for meeting growing spectrum demand – the role of shared spectrum access

The focus will be on Europe.  Phillipa will present some results from the EU pilot spectrum inventory study (which Plum did with WIK for the European Commission) showing spectrum availability, comment on the nature of access being sought by different users, and then discuss possible sharing models with a focus on Licensed Shared Access.

  • Location: CTVR Trinity College Dublin, Dunlop Oriel House, Fenian Street, Dublin
  • Date: 10th May 2013
  • Time: 3:00pm

Licensed shared access (LSA) can be defined as the sharing of licensed spectrum assignments under pre-defined technical conditions, enabling the provider of secondary level sharer to guarantee the quality of the service to be provided.  The primary level spectrum rights holder (incumbent) would facilitate shared use of its spectrum assignment with other users under specified conditions.
