Clear economic benefits of spectrum access

Professor William Webb

Whatever it is, it is big


50 billion devices is
becoming a self
-
fulfilling prophecy


10 devices per person
each at ~10% of cellular
ARPU means this is an
industry of the same
magnitude as cellular

And it is critical for society

Lack of certainty is no excuse for regulatory inaction


Preference for assessment of future
economic benefit of various uses requires
vision


M2M application demonstrated, standards
body in place


this is not slideware


Current consultations are far too cautious in
failing to ascribe possible value


If every spectrum application had to
demonstrate the value it added before it
was allowed spectrum to demonstrate the
value it added there would not be much
innovation!

M2M ticks all the boxes


The perfect application for unlicensed / uncertain spectrum
access


and white space is the perfect spectrum for M2M


Will deliver enormous economic and social value


Demonstrated to work well without causing any interference


Enables innovation


Pioneers a new method of spectrum management
