Mobile spectrum handbooks – everything you need to know
To help anyone interested learn about mobile spectrum, the GSMA has produced the “Spectrum Primer Series”. It includes two spectrum handbooks and a dictionary.
Radio spectrum is used to carry information wirelessly for many vital services. Demand for this precious national resource is so great that regulators take great care to ensure it is used as efficiently as possible. Efficient use helps to ensure that the socioeconomic benefits that spectrum enables can be maximised.
The spectrum handbooks 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. Again, 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.
