WINNER II - SPECTRUM CALCULATION TOOL
Tool for estimating the spectrum requirements for the future development of IMT-2000 and IMT-Advanced
WINNER II has developed a tool called "SPECULATOR" for estimating the spectrum requirements for the future development of IMT-2000 and IMT-Advanced. The development was done in co-operation with mITF from Japan. The tool was contributed to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in preparation for the WRC-07 Agenda Item 1.4 in the Working Party 8F of the ITU Radiocommunication sector (ITU-R WP 8F).
The tool is based on MS Excel software and implements the methodology for calculation of the spectrum requirements for the future development of the terrestrial component of IMT-2000 and IMT-Advanced, as defined in Recommendation ITU-R M.1768. The tool includes the final input parameter values as stated in Report ITU-R M.2078 based on the market forecast provided in Report ITU-R M.2072 and the radio-related issues discussed in Report ITU-R M.2074.
The user guide for the tool as well as a detailed characterization of the spectrum calculation methodology is presented in the book “Spectrum Requirement Planning in Wireless Communications: Model and Methodology for IMT-Advanced”, edited by H. Takagi & B.H. Walke (John Wiley & Sons, 2008).
The tool is available for free download from the ITU-R web:
