Ofcom consultation on technical licence conditions for 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz spectrum

Ofcom published a consultation document on 2 June 2011, which outlined its proposals for the technical licence conditions for the award of 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz spectrum.

The consultation sets out proposals for technical licence conditions for the 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz spectrum, including information regarding low power shared access in the 2.6 GHz band and additional detail on measures to manage interference to adjacent spectrum bands - including those utilised by radar systems above 2.7 GHz and short range devices and emergency services above 800 MHz. Additionally, the consultation sets out proposals in relation to technical measures which will introduce LTE (Long Term Evolution) and WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) in the 900 MHz and 1800 MHz bands.

Responses to the consultation must be received by 28 July 2011.
