Public Sector Spectrum Release (PSSR): Technical coexistence issues for the 2.3 and 3.4 GHz award

  • Start: 19 February 2014
  • Status: Statement published
  • End: 15 May 2014

This document sets out Ofcom’s strategy to ensure users of wireless cameras and video links in the programme making and special events (PMSE) sector continue to have access to sufficient spectrum to support their activities.

The strategy sets out long term access for video PMSE users to the 2 GHz to 2.3 GHz band, as well as greater use of spectrum in the 7 GHz band. This follows a likely reduction in spectrum available to these users after the proposed award of spectrum in the 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz bands in late 2015 or early 2016.

There will be continued access to the award bands where possible through coordination with new licensees in order to support major events.

As well as showing how these plans meet current demand, Ofcom has also published an independent study into technology developments in the PMSE sector and potential future demand. The conclusions of this study provide evidence that the long term needs of the sector can be met.
