Radio Spectrum Management undertakes a range of projects aimed at promoting efficient and economic growth-supporting uses of the radio spectrum.
The objective of this draft Outlook document is to provide an overview of the areas of growth and development in spectrum management, review emerging wireless technologies impacting on the use of the radio spectrum and outline the indicative RSM work programme for 2017-2021. The Spectrum Outlook also links recent international developments in spectrum allocations with the relevant areas of the work programme.
RSM is currently consulting with the incumbents on a number of generic options for the renewal of the Management Rights in the 1800 and 2100 MHz bands.
VHF Band III between 174–230 MHz is currently unallocated due to the end of analogue television broadcasting. We are seeking views from industry and individuals on potential future uses for this spectrum.
RSM sought feedback on the proposed changes to the licence fee framework and individual submissions are available.
The last ITU World Radio Conference made changes to the International Radio Regulations in regards to the allocation of VHF frequencies for maritime use. These changes, will provide more radio spectrum for AIS and VDES signals. Go to retune.co.nz for further details.
