Research and Markets: Dynamic Spectrum Access: the Barriers and Drivers - 2012 Considers How to Implement DSA, and the Benefits and Challenges of Doing So

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Dynamic Spectrum Access: the Barriers and Drivers" report to their offering.

The regulatory approach to spectrum management at a national level must aim to balance the merits of both the individual and common usage modes of spectrum use.

Most countries will require up to 500MHz of new spectrum bandwidth to accommodate growth in mobile broadband applications in the next ten years. One of the measures that operators, regulators and others in the mobile industry are discussing is dynamic spectrum access (DSA) - the allocation and use of spectrum as needed on a shared basis between multiple users.

This Report provides an examination of:

- software-defined radio

- cognitive radio

- Licensed Shared Access

- license-exempt shared access for the secondary user (that is, white space).

It also reports on the challenges that are hindering the implementation of DSA schemes, including:

- technical barriers

- regulatory barriers

- operator objections.

Key Topics Covered:

1 Executive summary

2 Recommendations

3 Introduction to DSA

4 What are the drivers of DSA?

5 What is enabling a shift towards implementing DSA?

6 What are the barriers to DSA?

7 Recent developments
