Handbook. Supplement 1 (Revision 1) Deployment of IMT-2000 Systems

image of Migration to IMT-2000 Systems

This revised Supplement expands on the first edition of the ITU Handbook - Deployment of IMT-2000 Systems and updates much of the work that has occurred since the release of the Handbook. It addresses the subject of evolution and migration from current mobile systems towards IMT-2000. ITU-R has developed this work in response to ongoing liaison and interaction with the ITU-D and ITU-T Sectors and sees this material as the natural extension of the information presented in the Handbook.



Economics of evolution/migration to IMT-2000

A key step in the process of finalizing a transition path toward IMT-2000 network deployment is the economic evaluation of the revenues expected from the investments over the economic life of the system, including the spectrum licence acquisition costs – where appropriate. This evaluation bases on the (cost of the) possible options and also on the assumptions about the evolution of demand and service penetration as well as tariff trends and policies.
