Australia – ACMA review of 803-960MHz band

australiaThe ACMA has published its review and plans for the 803-960MHz band to be implemented over the next few years. Decisions include:

  • identification of additional spectrum for mobile broadband
  • identification of new spectrum to support low power low duty cycle communications (including smart infrastructure)
  • new frequency arrangements for the trunked land mobile service (TLMS)
  • new frequency arrangements for single and two-frequency fixed links and a consolidation of sub-service types and licensing and assignment instructions to simplify access to these services
  • a general ‘defragmentation’ of the 800 MHz band to improve overall efficiency.
