The purpose of the work was to establish the location history of a number of satellites. A number of the satellites had claimed to have been in position to bring ITU filings into use on particular dates. An application was developed to download two-line element sets from SpaceTrack which provides “space situational awareness services and information with U.S.[…]
Plum was commissioned by Cisco to conduct a study on whether there is a case for additional 5 GHz spectrum for unlicensed Wi-Fi use in Europe.
The study was intended to provide advice in respect of spectrum sharing and pooling and the applicability to Defence spectrum and was split up between two work packages; work package one (WP1) looked at the “Spectrum Usage” and work package two (WP2) looked at the “Approaches to Pooling and Sharing”. The purpose of WP1 was[…]
Plum, Aegis and Britten Consulting advised the European Space Agency on the application of the public value framework to assess the value of satellite spectrum use. This involved consideration of a number of case studies on different classes of satellite services across various frequency bands, including fixed satellite services (FSS), mobile satellite services (MSS) and[…]
Plum and Aegis developed a comprehensive framework for spectrum utilisation fees for both spectrum awarded by auction (reserve) prices and other non-government spectrum directly assigned. The work included business case analysis and opportunity cost calculation for a variety of spectrum bands.
This project, for the ACMA, provided advice on administrative pricing for spectrum based on opportunity cost. Specifically, Plum advised on the appropriate level of opportunity cost pricing in the 400 MHz band across geographic areas with varying degrees of congestion, and on approaches to implementing spectrum pricing. The 400 MHz band (380-430MHz and 450-520 MHz)[…]
This study attempts to identify frequency bands in which there might be an opportunity to change the current use to a higher value alternative use, in order to increase economic welfare over the next 10-15 years. The scope for making such changes could be limited by legal impediments or interference considerations and could involve moving[…]
Plum led a nine-month study to develop 20-year scenarios of the way in which assisted living technologies might be used to allow older and disabled people to richer and longer independent lives in their own homes. As well as technology drivers, the scenarios took account to institutional factors, likely economic and demographic changes, and the[…]
Plum supported the ECO impact assessment workshop with this case study impact assessment of receiver parameters for devices operating in the 863 – 870 MHz band. Plum also prepared a framework paper and ran a workshop on impact assessment for ECO members.
Plum and Aegis developed a generic methodology for estimating the value of spectrum and constructed a model that could be applied to a variety of frequency bands ranging between 10 MHz and 100 GHz. The purpose of the model is to investigate how provision of spectrum value information may inform and stimulate trading in spectrum[…]
