The evolving M2M/IoT landscape cuts across diverse verticals and embraces a range of networks and devices. This diversity leads to varied and dynamic requirements, which make regulatory policy formulation a daunting challenge, especially the regulation of spectrum. This paper considers how a regulator should look at demand, supply, and utilization of spectrum. The study details available policy levers (e.g. spectrum fees, sharing regulations, License Authorization Model).
Spectrum freed by free-to-air television digitisation and the switch-off of analogue TV, is allocated to accommodate the soaring growth in mobiles.
From an economic theory in the 1950?s to eventual implementation beginning in the 1990s, Governments and their regulators have utilised increasingly sophisticated auctions over the internet decide on the allocation of spectrum in high demand to telecommunications companies.
