Abstract [en]

The continued expansion of mobile communications revolves around mobile broadband and mobile applications besides the basic function with ubiquitous communication. The growth rate of mobile market has declined in conjunction with the vast growth of traffic volumes in the mobile networks. The deployment of 3G has resulted in increased capacity but the take off for mobile broadband has fundamentally shifted the traffic balance of the mobile networks. Although operators are enjoying lower equipment prices capacity enhancement has inevitable be done through either increasing the number of sites or adding more spectrum. The demand for spectrum has never been stronger as it enables operators to increase capacity without having to deploy costly network upgrades. A number of spectrum auctions around the world demonstrate that the value of spectrum is going up. In order to make a contribution to this area this paper analyze the value of spectrum from an engineering point, how capex is impacted through different spectrum levels. The analysis exhibits the fundamental difference between 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz when it comes to create coverage in Rural areas. Besides the impact of capex does it also have an effect on the strategic position for operators’. Altogether, this paper addresses a key issue for the mobile industry where the regulators are playing a vital role.
