Spectrum Management Training

Spectrum Management is the art and science of managing the use of the radio spectrum in order to minimize interference and ensure radio spectrum is used to its most efficient extent and benefit for the public.

Radio spectrum is a limited resource that is rapidly approaching its limits. Demand for commercial spectrum to support broadband wireless communications has led the government to consider repurposing various radio frequencies, including the satellite communications bands next to GPS.

It should be noted that All useful regions of the radio frequency spectrum (9 kHz–300 GHz) are regulated. Worldwide, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), an entity within the United Nations, maintains a Table of Allocations to which most countries adhere, to a large extent.

The ITU has divided the world into three regions, each often having different radio rules and allocations. Each nation also has internal spectrum regulators who manage what is universally considered to be a sovereign asset within their own borders. Generally a Ministry of Telecommunications or similar organization fills this role.

The ITU is the venue in which deliberations are held to accommodate new types of telecommunications functions. World Radiocommunication Conferences (WRCs) are held every three or four years to consider changes to the Table of Allocations. Because this process takes several years to complete, spectrum for any new function (e.g., when satellites were first introduced in significant numbers in the 1970s) has to be planned for many years in advance.

In the United States, the authority to regulate spectrum use is split between two agencies: the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The operating rules of these agencies are extensive and are codified into law within Title 47 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.
