Managed spectrum park licences
2.5 GHz Managed Spectrum Park
The 2.5 GHz Managed Spectrum Park (MSP) is a new concept, catering for a situation in which a nationwide spectrum right is not required, but likewise a general user licence would be too open as services require some coordination or sharing. It is intended for local and regional services, and seeks to encourage a flexible, cooperative, low cost and self-managed approach to allocation and use.
The MSP consists of 45 MHz of spectrum from 2575 – 2620 MHz, and licences are allocated on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis (although there are arbitration provisions to encourage spectrum sharing). Along with any applicable licence administration fees , MSP licensees are also required to pay an annual charge consisting of a management charge and a resource rental. In order to ensure that the spectrum is efficiently utilised there is also a requirement to implement services within two years of allocation.
