About this event

The OECD-led current spectrum policy worldwide does not anticipate the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) with billions of devices accessing the spectrum. It is also worsening the digital divide for the unconnected 4Billion without a new spectrum and competition policy approach. Thirdly, current spectrum policy leads to incredibly inefficient use of spectrum. The speaker will argue that the future of spectrum policy lies in much “rebalancing”: from largely exclusive utilisation to shared utilisation (geographical and temporal); from licensed regulation to unlicensed (e.g. Wi-Fi); and from static allocation to dynamic spectrum access. Dynamic spectrum access (DSA) as a spectrum-sharing approach allows secondary users to access abundant spectrum ‘holes’, or white spaces, in licensed spectrum bands. The lecture will also range other areas including LTE-U/LAA, LSA, TVWS and 5G.

About the Speaker

Prof H. Nwana, Executive Director of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance and lead Partner of Atlantic Telecoms & Media Ltd (Former Head of Spectrum Policy at Ofcom and MD at Arqiva)
