Review of spectrum licensing technical frameworks
ACMA is currently reviewing the approach to technical frameworks for spectrum licensing. The purpose of the Spectum Licensing Technical Frameworks (SLTF) Review is to ensure:
- consistency between future technical frameworks for different frequency bands;
- that technical frameworks are clear and easily understood by industry;
- future technical frameworks can accommodate new technology developments and interference methods; and
- the development of future technical frameworks follows principles of international best practice in the design and consideration of interference management techniques.
The information paper, Spectrum Licensing Technical Frameworks - Information Paper (PDF 984 kb or Word 1.5 mb), provides detailed guidance on the current arrangements that apply to spectrum licensing technical frameworks. ACMA encourages potential respondents to the discussion paper to also read the information paper.
The purpose of the Spectrum Licensing Technical Frameworks – Discussion paper (PDF 836 kb or Word 4.5 mb [zipped]) is to stimulate discussion and seek views from stakeholders to assist ACMA to develop future arrangements for spectrum licensing technical frameworks.
