Present scenario (Access)


BTRC prepared the National Frequency Allocation Plan (NFAP) effective from 2006. Several changes have been made after this but these were not included in the Plan. As per NFAP the present and prospective bands for mobile operation are
Band MHz 450 UHF 850 Up Link MHz 450-457.5 Down Link MHz 460-467.5 Total BW MHz 7.5 108 20 Fully Allocated Allocated to Mobile & Private PSTN 900 890-915 935-960 25 Fully Allocated Allocated to Mobile operator 3 MHz is Free Allocated to Private PSTN 698-806 825-845 870-890 Status

BTRC appointed an International Consultancy firm Helios to review this NFAP under World Bank finance on July 2009.

Previous position:
As per previous NFAP the core band is 40 MHz Operation of UMTS and CDMA in the same band will create interference

Present position:
The present situation of UMTS core band UL (UMTS) IMT 2000 (FDD) 58.25 1920 1978.25 1978.25 Telebarta 2.6 1980.85 CDMA (Reserve) 9.15 1980.85 1990

Provision for mobile broadband in 700 MHz band

Previous Position: At present this band (610-801 MHz) is allocated for broadcasting and fixed service. Total Band is almost free. Some vendors are developing mobile broadband product in this band.

Present Position: The proposal is as follows:

8MHz

698

748

756

806

Downlink

Uplink

Spectrum Re-Farming at 1800 MHz Band

Previous Position: Before Re-Farming the band was 2*55 MHz instead of 2*75 MHz UMTS core Band (2100 MHz) is splitted into two Block of 2*20 MHz

Present Position: Still we are working for continuous allocation of Spectrum in this band.

BTRC increased the band to 75 MHz in 2008.


The Policy is to make Spectrum costly so that maximum Spectrum will be available to assign to the potential customers. Still we are working for continuous allocation of Spectrum in this band.

Acquisition Spectrum Re-Farming Method

BTRC has recently practiced both spectrum pricing method:


1.

Through Auction
BWA License

2.

Through Beauty Contest

Spectrum Monitoring System

The objective is to monitor the different spectrum bands and find out the direction of transmitter in the ranges between 0.5 to 3000 MHz.

Recenet Success Stories

Country wide spectrum scanning was done for the first time in this year. The objective of this scanning was to: organize the assignment of GSM 1800 Band. Scan the 3G band to check illegal usage.

In this scanning, some illegal usage of frequency was found in northern part of the country. Strong GSM and CDMA signals were detected inside the territory of Bangladesh in some part of bordering areas. This issue can be solved if we can make the coordination with the neighboring country.

Recenet Re-Farming SpectrumSuccess Stories (contd.)

A 3.5 GHz ISP transmitter was located using unauthorized frequency. Identified and solved the interference issue between the Satellite TV Earth Station and ISP operating in 3.5 GHz band. Settled down the interference problem of Police Telecoms Walkie-Talkie network in the UHF band.

Challenges
Revalidation of spectrum Co-ordination of spectrum assignment in the border area between the neighbouring states. cross

Co-existence between the satellite downlink and BWA operating frequency in 3.4-4.2 GHz band. Frequency interference in the cross border zone. Spectrum monitoring within high rise building area, fighting against multipath fading. Finding out the transmitter location beyond 3 GHz as the existing system has the direction finding capability upto 3 GHz.
