1 Introduction of WSD in the UHF Band in Europe from a Broadcaster s Perspective International Spectrum Management Dr. Roland Beutler

2 Broadcasting and WSD in UHF Terrestrial Broadcasting in Europe PSB have strong position in Europe (30% of audience) free-to-air content (PSB/comm.) & pay-tv PSB obligations full area coverage 100% population national, regional, local and community content 2

3 Broadcasting and WSD in UHF ITU-R GE06 Agreement and Plan frequency plan and regulatory framework in VHF and UHF for DVB-T and T-DAB allotment planning 3

4 Broadcasting and WSD in UHF ITU-R GE06 Agreement and Plan frequency plan and regulatory framework for DVB-T and T-DAB ( programme multiplexes) allotment planning planning parameters for fixed, portable (indoor/outdoor) and mobile high-power / high-tower networks SFN implementation Reuse distance of ~140 km between coverage areas 4

5 Broadcasting and WSD in UHF ITU-R GE06 Agreement and Plan UHF channel 27 allotments for Germany ~140 km 5

6 Sharing Spectrum Broadcasting and WSD in UHF Amount of white spaces for WSD? Sharing conditions? Data base and/or sensing? 6

7 ST61 White Spaces Broadcasting and WSD in UHF GE06 Planning Principle: Equitable Access to the Spectrum 3 Coverages across Europe (3 analogue TV programmes) 7 Layers across Europe (~30 digital programmes) 7

8 ST61 White Spaces Broadcasting and WSD in UHF GE06 ~20 programmes in Berlin ~25 programmes in Paris ~10 programmes in London 11+2 mux in France 12 mux in Italy as a start... >35 programmes in Rome... White Spaces used for BC Services WS always snap shot in time Not to forget PMSE! 8

9 Sharing Conditions Broadcasting and WSD in UHF WSD WSD Adjacent Channel Co-Channel Hole Punching Geographical Separation 9

10 Sharing Conditions Broadcasting and WSD in UHF Determine protection ratios for co- and adjacent channel usage: definition of technical characteristics of WSD? (multi carrier, single carrier, different bandwidth,...) 10

11 Sharing Conditions Broadcasting and WSD in UHF Determine protection ratios for co- and adjacent channel usage: definition of technical characteristics of WSD? (multi carrier, single carrier, different bandwidth,...) Define methodology for interference assessment: protection requirements of broadcasting? treatment of fixed and portable/mobile WSD? (relevance of reference geometries) aggregation of several interfering sources? wave propagation model? 11

12 Broadcasting and WSD in UHF Sensing and Geo-Location Data Base Sensing: How to avoid false decision on channel occupation? How to determine detection threshold? 12

13 Broadcasting and WSD in UHF Sensing and Geo-Location Data Base Sensing: How to avoid false decision on channel occupation? How to determine detection threshold? Geo-Location Data Base: Methodology to determine about channel availability? Control of data base? Maintainance of data base? 13

14 Broadcasting and WSD in UHF Sensing and Geo-Location Data Base Sensing: How to avoid false decision on channel occupation? How to determine detection threshold? Geo-Location Data Base: Methodology to determine about channel availability? Control of data base? Maintainance of data base? License Scheme for Channel Allocation to WSD: How to maintain access to WS for incumbent service? 14

15 Future Opportunities New Broadcasting Paradigm: Broadcasting and WSD in UHF linear and non-linear content selection of appropriate distribution technologies 15

16 Future Opportunities New Broadcasting Paradigm: linear and non-linear content Broadcasting and WSD in UHF selection of appropriate distribution technologies Prospects for Broadcasting and WSD innovative solutions for indoor coverage (pick up and re-distribute) WSD and CR for distribution of non-linear content Broadband functionality and return channel 16

17 Broadcasting and WSD in UHF Thank you for your attention! 17
