Use cases, spectrum requirements and valuation of spectrum for private LTE

These reports examine use cases, spectrum requirements and valuation of spectrum for use by private LTE. The first report defines private LTE, considers environments where private LTE might be used focusing on industrial automation and identifies what spectrum these applications will need. To do this it sets out a methodology to characterise the identified private[…]

The compatibility of LTE services and VSAT receivers

Plum have recently collaborated with Huawei in undertaking a number of studies intended to clarify options for spectrum sharing in C-band. The report linked here addresses issues relating to the co-existence of LTE services and satellite downlinks in the same, or adjacent, spectrum. The report describes realistic field trials which illustrate the potential for geographical[…]

Valuation of mobile broadband spectrum in Australia

Plum supported the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE) with the estimation of value for the 700 MHz and 2.5 GHz spectrum bands in Australia. The work was performed in conjunction with Dr. Melvyn Weeks of the University of Cambridge. To derive estimates of spectrum value for delivery of mobile broadband services[…]

Co-existence between LTE and Analogue TV

The study examined the potential for a 10 MHz FDD LTE network roll-out in major population centres in South Africa in the Region 1 digital dividend band (i.e. 790 – 862 MHz).  It reviewed analogue TV use in South Africa, established representative modelling parameters, developed appropriate sharing criteria and interference analysis methods and examined the[…]
