This Handbook describes the key elements of spectrum management: spectrum management fundamentals, spectrum planning, frequency assignment and licensing, spectrum monitoring, spectrum inspection and investigation, spectrum engineering, spectrum economics, automation of spectrum management activities and measures of spectrum utilization and spectrum utilization efficiency.



Spectrum management fundamentals

Society’s increasing use of radio-based technologies, and the tremendous opportunities for social development that these technologies provide, highlight the importance of radio-frequency spectrum and national spectrum management processes. Technological progress has continually opened doors to a variety of new spectrum applications that have spurred greater interest in, and demand for, the limited spectrum resource. Increased demand requires that spectrum be used efficiently and that effective spectrum management processes be implemented. In this framework, modern data handling capabilities and engineering analysis are important to accommodate the variety of potential users seeking access to the spectrum.
