⌘ Mobile Communication Spectrum

Spectrum requirements
  • increased spectrum need
    • due to mobile broadband
    • indoor coverage, replacement of fixed networks
  • low frequencies for increased range, thus coverage

⌘ The challenge of area coverage

Land area Norway, 385.178 km^2 - 7500 basestasjons http://www.mynewsdesk.com/no/telenor/pressreleases/sjekk-naar-du-faar-4g-der-du-bor-1399662

  • Tanzania 947,303 km^2 = 3 x Norway,
  • Mali 1.240.000 km^2 = 4 x Norway
  • DRC 2.345.000 km^2 = 8 x Norway

Results for UMTS (worst case), with 3 sector antenna

  • Range of unloaded cell is 700 m in urban pedestrian
  • With loaded cell, assumed increase of noise by 10 dB, max cell radius 390 m
  • vehicular with typical range of 3600 m (unloaded) and 1900 m (loaded)

⌘Difference GSM - UMTS

Illustration of Q_16 parameter in GSM
  • Frequency
  • Receiver structure
    • GSM sliding window of 16
    • UMTS Rake receiver

Q16ratio:The ratio of the power inside to the power outside a window of duration 16 . For each IR the window is slid to find the position with highest power inside the window.

⌘Network planning

GSM versus UMTS

  • UMTS is interference limited
  • GSM is build on frequency reuse in the cells, while UMTS has the same frequency in neighbouring cells
  • UMTS range is capacity limited
  • UMTS requires simultaneous cell planning and network dimensioning
  • handover is network based, the handset announces, network performs the handover
  • In UMTS a mobile phone can be connected to two cells at the same time, the handover is then called soft handover. Handover between sectors in of the same antenna are called softer handover

⌘Smart antennas and MIMO measurements




Example GSM: the upload band is from 880-915 Unik/MHz (in Europe), which is 35 Unik/MHz. With a carrier of 200 kHz we have 175 channels, which have to be divided between the various operators.

  • 2500-2690 MHz and 2010-2025 MHz. The new licenses expire 31 December 2022.
  • five sub-bands, each consisting of a number of contiguous frequency blocks.
  • six different regions.

The five sub-bands are:

  • (A) The 2010 MHz band, consisting of a single 15MHz block.
  • (B) Five unpaired blocks of 10MHz at the centre of the 2.6GHz band (2570 MHz to 2620 MHz).
  • (C) Eight paired blocks of 2x5 MHz in the 2.6 GHz band (2500-2540 MHz paired with 2620-2660 MHz).
  • (D) Three unpaired blocks of 10 MHz below sub-band B in the 2.6 GHz band (2540-2570 MHz).
  • (E) Three unpaired blocks of 10 MHz at the top end of the 2.6 GHz band (2660-2690 MHz)

Note: Unpaired is TDD operation, while paired is FDD operation

⌘ Price policy

The total amount will consist of

  • a fixed component per contiguous spectrum block
  • a variable component that will depend on the bandwidth at disposal and the population in the geographical area
  • Estimate for 2008
    • annual administrative charge of (NOK 25000 x number of contiguous blocks)
    • + (NOK 1600 x bandwidth in MHz) x (regional percentage of Norway';s population).
