Spectrum For Government Use
In preparing this report, the Committee has focused on establishing a data collection and reporting methodology that can be used for future reports, thereby enabling analysis over time. This reporting process assists agencies and departments to identify opportunities to review their holdings and identify potential opportunities to improve the efficiency in the management and use of their individual holdings. Over time and with advances in technology, this may enable Australian Government users to identify opportunities to exchange or share spectrum.
The focus of this report is on broadband requirements for current and future applications for use by Public Safety Agencies (PSAs) in day-to-day activities as well as extreme events that may impact on large numbers of people. The report considers delivery options for PSAs that would complement a dedicated mobile wireless network. These documents have not been produced by us and may not meet WCAG 2.1 Level AA requirements.
