Access to Spectrum

Radio spectrum is a finite natural resource which is in short supply. This leads to the need for spectrum to be re-farmed and shared to allow the introduction of new services and technologies. Access to suitable spectrum can be determined at an international, European or national level depending on the markets, services and technology involved.

Operator Support

In such an environment, it is vital that potential network operators have a thorough understanding of the characteristics of the radio spectrum they intend to use. Awareness of any national, regional or global regulatory constraints on the use of the spectrum is also essential. Aegis has played an active role in regulatory fora such as the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and the Conference of European Post and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) for over a decade. Our professional staff combine in-depth knowledge of radio theory and practice with hands-on operational and regulatory experience. By working in partnership with our clients we can ensure they gain the maximum commercial benefit from their radio spectrum investment.

Regulator Support

We play a significant role in supporting national and regional regulators in their efforts to promote competition and introduce new services and technology. Our work has addressed such issues as sharing between satellite and terrestrial services, implementation of technology-neutral spectrum usage rights and the implications of operating licensed and licence-exempt services in the same frequency band. In all of these areas, our emphasis is on achieving the maximum utilisation efficiency from the available radio spectrum. Our expertise in this area, gained in one of the most competitive telecommunication environments in the world, makes us the ideal partner for regulators and administrations seeking to develop their own domestic markets.
