Roles of the three European regulatory organizations



European Commission:

Single market issues

Binding regulations based on the
technical expertise of CEPT/ECC

and harmonised standards of ETSI
(27 Member States)


CEPT/ECC:

Consensus and voluntary character

Spectrum designation to
systems/applicatoins and technical
conditions for its use

(48 member countries)

ETSI:

European Harmonised standards (EN) for radio equipment

‘System Reference Documents’ (SRDoc) which inform and trigger
much of the CEPT/ECC work

(over 700 industry members and European naitonal regulators)


EC: Radio Spectrum Policy Programme (RSPP)



Mobile broadband (1200 MHz)



Spectrum Inventory



Public protection and disaster relief (art. 8.3)



Electricity production and distribution (Green...)



Wireless microphones and cameras



Foster different modes of spectrum sharing



Spectrum Trading (where flexible use available)




CEPT/ECC: Strategic Plan


Priority topics
:



Digital dividend



Cognitive radio



Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR)



Innovation above 40 MHz



Numbering and naming



Improve its own working processes


Roadmap of the FM49 work


FM49’s main task: find harmonised radio spectrum for the future

FM49#05 meeting (16

FM49 reviewed the results of the CG “Spectrum calculations” and endorsed the
main estimates of the required spectrum bandwidth for a PPDR Broadband WAN*
:


PP1 (day
-
to
-
day operations)


PP2 (large emergency / public events)

It was decided to complement the CG's estimates with a sensitivity analysis which will be produced with
the help of the LEWP/RCEG
-
ETSI “Matrix of applications”, now with the spectrum calculation functionality.


FM49#05 meeting (16
-
17 October, Helsinki) (2)




Comments on the PP1 and PP2 estimates of the required spectrum:


PP1 (day
-
to
-
day operations)


The

difference

between

the

estimate

for

420

MHz

and

750

MHz

is

due

to

the

fact

that

the

size

of

cells

at

400

MHz

is

larger

than

the

size

of

700

MHz

cells
.

This

implies

that

more

incidents

can

occur

and

thus

more

throughput
.


PP
2

(large

emergency

/

public

events)


The

PP
2

estimate

is

based

on

a

single

PP
2

scenario

(the

UK

royal

wedding)
.

This

estimate

does

not

take

into

account

possible

additional

capacity

(an

Ad
-
Hoc

network)

that

could

be

set

up

in

such

a

case
.


DR (Disaster Relief)


The

DR

scenario

has

not

been

addressed
.

It

can

be

assumed

that

the

amount

of

spectrum

required

for

PP
1

scenarios

would

be

minimal

for

a

DR

scenario
.












FM49#05 meeting (16
-
17 October, Helsinki) (3)




Technical aspects

related to the estimates of the required spectrum:


In

the

values

shown

in

the

Tables

only

the

uplink

requirements

are

presented

as

they

are

the

most

constraining

(the

downlink

bandwidth

is

assumed

to

be

of

the

same

size)
.


The

difference

between

the

“low”

/

“less

stringent

case”

and

“medium”

/

“worst

case”

estimates

for

PP
1

and

PP
2

respectively

is

not

in

the

traffic

models

(both

correspond

to

the

identical

throughput)

but

in

the

spectral

efficiency

assumptions
.


The

assumed

relatively

high

value

of

the

uplink

spectrum

efficiency

at

the

cell

edge

(
0
.
31

bit/s/Hz)

is

mainly

justified

by

the

need

to

enable

the

provision

of

broadband

PPDR

applications,

first

of

all

real
-
time

video,

at

the

cell

edge

under

the

envisaged

limited

amount

of

spectrum

potentially

available

for

BB

PPDR
.


The

main

implication

of

this

assumption

is

the

requirement

for

more

base

stations

in

the

future

BB

PPDR

WAN,

in

particular

in

the

urban

environment
.

However

a

trade
-
off

between

the

uniform

‘broadband

coverage’

and

the

cost

of

the

network

is

possible

at

the

stage

of

the

network

radio

planning
.



DMO

and

mission

critical

voice

have

not

been

taken

into

account

in

the

calculations
.

The

provision

of

these

services

within

the

BB

PPDR

network

may

require

additional

spectrum
.











FM49#05 meeting (16
-
17 October, Helsinki) (4)




FM

has

also

reviewed

the

draft

ECC

Report

Applications

related,

operational

and

spectrum

requirements

for

the

European

broadband

PPDR

system

(Wide

The

ECC

Report

“A”

was

prepared

on

the

basis

of

the

earlier

agreed


Catalogue

of

PPDR

and

will

be

complemented

with

the

section

on

spectrum

calculations

at

the

next

meeting
.



A

"
List

of

PPDR

definitions
"

(the

‘common

which

includes

both

the

definitions

agreed

within

the

ITU

CEPT

frameworks

and

those

newly

proposed

by

FM
49
,

will

be

a

part

of

the

is

expected

to

be

ready

for

public

consultation

by

the

next

meeting

of

WGFM

(February

2013
)

and

will

be

followed

by

an

ECC

where

solutions

to

satisfy

the

PPDR

requirements

identified

in

the

will

be

addressed
.











FM49#05 meeting (16

meeting

has

further

discussed

the


Table

of

candidate

frequency

for

harmonization

of

the

future

BB

PPDR

spectrum

(earlier

produced

by

FM
38
,

the

FM

’s

predecessor)
.

The

discussion

is

currently

focusing

on

the

parts

of

the

380
-
470

MHz

and

on

has

also

reviewed

a

proposal

to

consider

mobile

satellite

solutions

for

BB

PPDR

wide
