International best practice for spectrum management



The ACMA commissioned Analysys Mason to conduct research on international best practice for spectrum management and its implications for improving spectrum management in Australia. This research is informing the ACMA as we prepare to implement the recommendations of the Spectrum Review. The research report highlighted the following overseas developments:

  • more sophisticated approaches to valuing spectrum
  • real-time dynamic spectrum access technologies to support spectrum-sharing
  • tiered spectrum use, noting pricing and quality-of-service implications
  • increased sharing to meet increasing spectrum demand.
