Vendor profiles update: a wide range of 6 GHz views
Jun 10, 2021
by Toby Youell

The ITU-R's Director, Mario Maniewicz, channeled the spirit of former US President John F Kennedy at the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance's Global Summit this week. "Ask not what spectrum and satellite orbits can do for you, but what you can do for spectrum and satellite orbits", he told delegates. His hope… Read more...

Vendors Overview
Jun 03, 2021
by Dianne Northfield

Vendors generally agree that spectrum in the 3 GHz range is prime 5G spectrum, with varying views on the service rules that apply to different 3 GHz sub-bands. There is strong divergence in vendor’s views on the 5925 - 7125 MHz range in terms of its licensing status and technical… Read more...

Cisco
Jun 02, 2021
by Dianne Northfield

While Cisco supports licensed low-, mid- and high-band spectrum for 5G, its priority is the release of additional unlicensed spectrum in the 5 GHz, 6 GHz and high-band 60/70/80 GHz ranges. Cisco believes that the workhorse of digital networks now and in the future, is license-exempt spectrum, which it considers… Read more...

by Dianne Northfield

While Cisco supports licensed low, mid and high-band spectrum for 5G, its priority is the release of additional license-exempt spectrum in the 5 GHz, 6 GHz and high-band 60/70/80 GHz ranges. WRC-19’s decision to consider an IMT identification for parts of the 6 GHz range will likely see Cisco lobbying… Read more...

40 GHz (September 2019)
Jan 16, 2020
by Toby Youell

The frequencies around 40 GHz are second tier mmWave 5G bands, regarded as less of a priority than 26 or 28 GHz. The end of 2019 will see their consideration at WRC-19 and an auction in the USA. Read more...

70 GHz (September 2019)
Jan 16, 2020
by Toby Youell

The mobile industry is promoting IMT identifications in 70 GHz band (66 – 71 GHz), but the unlicensed community wants to expand Wi-Gig usage into this range. Read more...

71 – 76 GHz and 81 – 86 GHz (2020)
Jan 16, 2020
by Toby Youell

A potential IMT identification in these bands was rejected at WRC-19, but they may be considered again in some form at WRC-27. Some countries are focussing regulatory efforts for the band on fixed links.  Read more...

71 – 76 and 81 – 86 GHz (September 2019)
Jan 15, 2020
by Toby Youell

Both 71 – 76 GHz and 81 – 86 GHz are technically under consideration for an IMT identification at WRC-19 but the ITU regional organisation has asked for them to be withdrawn. Some countries are focussing regulatory efforts for the band on fixed links. Read more...

Vendor Overview (September 2019)
Nov 03, 2019
by Dianne Northfield

As WRC-19 approaches, there is greater clarity in vendor’s 5G spectrum priorities. In addition to identifying the importance of sub-1 GHz and mid-band 3.5 GHz spectrum, vendors consider that initial 5G deployments using mmWave spectrum will focus on 26 GHz and 28 GHz, followed by 40 GHz. There is more… Read more...
