millimetre Wave Transmission (mWT); Analysis of Spectrum, License Schemes and Network Scenarios in the D-band
|Publication Date:||1 August 2018|
The present document describes possible scenarios and spectrum usage and proposes, aligned with CEPT ECC SE19 Working Item 37 [i.3], the channelization of the D-band (130 - 174,8 GHz) to facilitate the deployment of high capacity backhaul systems, able to decongest the network over distances shorter than usual ones for wireless transport.
Considering that the W-band and the D-band are primarily allocated to FS, part of the scope of the present document is to identify applications for future backhaul networks or similar applications.
Technical propagation characteristics of W-band and D-band are considered to analyze system behaviours and evaluate reachable distances and possible achievable throughputs.
In the absence of standardized channel plans for both the W-band and D-band, guidelines for efficient deployment in terms of spectrum, license schemes and other relevant aspects in those bands are being proposed, also considering nonoperator services, in the vision of significant market share.
