To help anyone interested learn about mobile spectrum, the GSMA has produced the “Spectrum Primer Series”. It includes two handbooks and a dictionary about mobile spectrum.
Together they provide an introduction to mobile spectrum and how to make the most of it. Another important topic covered is the challenge posed by growing data usage.
How to manage mobile spectrum can seem like a tricky business. But getting it right leads to big benefits for consumers and the economy. So, it is important everyone in the mobile industry have a basic understanding of how it works.
While only a brief introduction, the spectrum handbooks should provide a useful overview for people with a non-technical background.
The “Introducing radio spectrum” handbook is available for download here;
The “Introducing spectrum management” handbook here;
And finally, “The spectrum policy dictionary” here.
