Spectrum Management

The radio spectrum from about 67kHz through to about 100GHz has been hugely valuable to society over the past 100 years. It is well recognised that in every nation-state it represents between 1 and 3% of the gross domestic product, the total added value of goods and services in the economy. It is a facilitator to business and to our social welfare. It is a facilitator to defence and to our safety. The radio spectrum is however like the Earth's other natural resources. It is under pressure to support growing economies. In developed countries, it is facing scarcity where demand exceeds supply. In developing countries, much of the spectrum is in the hands of the military or is not yet optimally planned. Everywhere there are challenges.

In each nation-state, the National Regulatory Authority has responsibility to manage the spectrum. The 194 NRAs worldwide do this through five core activities:

  • Spectrum Engineering
  • Spectrum Management Policy
  • Spectrum Operations using Spectrum Management Systems
  • Spectrum Economics
  • Spectrum Monitoring and Enforcement

InterConnect Communications has over the past 20 years been at the forefront of spectrum management. It has aided most NRAs worldwide in development of their policies. It has done this by employing some of the world's most experienced and innovative thought leaders as consultants. These consultants have undertaken a wide range of spectrum management projects lasting from a few weeks to a few years.

InterConnect Communications believes that the key to marketing is the transfer of knowledge. The rest of this web site aims to inform. This arm, spectrum management, is targeted at informing staff and stakeholders of NRAs and other spectrum management organisations. The parallel arm on wireless networks is targeted at staff and stakeholders of wireless network operators.
