Course Description

Spectrum Planning & Management is the combination of administrative, scientific and technical procedures necessary to ensure the efficient operation of radio network. Simply stated, spectrum planning & management is the overall process of regulating and administering use of the radio frequency spectrum. The goal of spectrum planning & management is to maximize spectrum efficiency and revenue  generation with minimum OPEX. Rules and regulations, based on relevant legislation, form a regulatory and legal basis for the spectrum management process.

Course Objectives

  • Explaining Frequency & Standards
  • Exploring Spectrum and RF Planning and Robust NW
  • Discussing Frequency Economics & Turkish Frequency Tenders
