techUK, on behalf of the UK Spectrum Policy Forum (SPF), commissioned this study on spectrum sharing and Licensed Shared Access (LSA) to make proposals for the most acceptable specification for LSA for the UK. The study considers:
- An overview of the motivation for sharing focussing on LSA.
- A discussion of the currently proposed formats for LSA.
- An evaluation of the relative merits of the current proposed approaches.
- A summary of stakeholder views on LSA and the issues foreseen with implementation.
Recommendations are based on the outcome of Plum’s research into LSA, information available from the European Commission workshop that took place in Brussels, UK Spectrum Policy Forum Cluster 2 meetings and the outcome of stakeholder interviews.
