Spectrum forecasting for IMT-Advanced

CMbps = NBS X BMHz X Mbps/MHz

Traffic forecast increase


(CAGR = 53%)
Refarming
Evolving technologies

# of BS Increase More spectrum bands are needed


Candidate bands: 1.5 GHz; 2.3 GHz; 3.5 GHz
Global, or at least regional, is very desirable

Anatel’s Regulatory Agenda
• 58 regulatory projects to be initiated or approved by the end of 2018

• 20 of them related to Spectrum Management, including:


– Bands for IMT
• 1.5 GHz; 2.3 GHz; 3.5 GHz
• LAA (5 GHz)

– PDFF (NTFA)

– 39.5 – 40 GHz (accordingly determination of Resolution nr. 688/2017)

– Evaluation of the need to review, update and unify the technical regulations of the
broadcasting services (AM, FM and TV), within the premises of consistency and
regulatory quality. Regulatory Impact Analysis by 2nd / 2018.

– Regulation for dynamically access the spectrum in the VHF and UHF bands.
Regulatory Impact Analysis by 2nd half / 2018.

– Spectrum Pricing, including associated with Satellites


Final Comments
• Spectrum deals with past, present and future
• We need a stable and predictable regulatory environment to:
✓Facilitate the deployment of new technologies,
✓Improve service quality,
✓Country development.

• We should not overprotect incumbent services;

• Development of technical skills;

• Harmonization and economy of scale;

• Keep an open and frank dialogue with all players.


THANK YOU!
