Planning the Spectrum Needs of Industry for the Next 5 Years
The Communications Alliance Satellite Services Working Group (SSWG) provided a submission in response to the Australian Communications and Media Authority’s consultation on their Draft Five-year spectrum outlook 2022–27 and 2022–23 work program.
The SSWG has welcomed the ACMA’s approach in taking a holistic and proactive look at satellite systems spectrum planning in Australia which, combined with a number of world leading initiatives, has once again positioned Australia among the world leaders in spectrum management. The SSWG has agreed with the ACMA’s view that there is no need for more prescriptive nor interventionist approaches to the regulation of satellite systems in Australia. Satellite systems benefit from streamlined, light-touch and flexible administrative processes for licence applications and grants, with reasonable fees and reporting requirements.
Our submission works through over a dozen spectrum bands in identifying the needs and future plans of our members providing satellite services in Australia, including the benefits, technical challenges and commercial and economic risks in the work program.
