Hello Community Members!

You may have had heard the term 'refarming' or 'spectrum refarming'. In this post, I will briefly explain spectrum refarming.


INTRODUCTION

Spectrum refarming is a useful technique for managing radio resources. This allows different generations of cellular networks to operate in the same radio spectrum. In other words, it is the process of transitioning a specific radio frequency band from one technology to another.

Durin the past two decades, the technologies of cellular network have evolved from one generation to other generations. That is, from the second generation to the third and fourth generation, just like the mobile radio communications have evolved from the analog systems in the late 80s.


Evolution of Cellular Generations


With the increasing demands of high data rates, high capacity and low latency, it is now common for the mobile operators to upgrade from older technologies to newer ones, the service continuity and investment certainty being critical for successful spectrum refarming.


Telecom operators having technology-neutral licenses can replace the existing old technology with new ones as markets develop. Different operators may have different road maps to suit them as per their consumers' portfolios.


License


Spectrum refarming is a cost effective way to increase the capacity for 3G/4G from the existing 2G band without the need to go buy a new spectrum. The operators can free some of the capacity from 2G (which may be underutilized) and allocate it to 3G or 4G for capacity enhancement.


Cost effective


I hope this post has enhanced your knowledge on the concept of spectrum refarming. You may also comment with your understanding of what actually spectrum refarming is. I will try to write some more about it very soon.


thanks for reading
