The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance works to engage with regulators and government officials to promote the adoption of legal and regulatory frameworks that facilitate dynamic access to radio spectrum based on the policy principles adopted by the DSA. A key function of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance is to generate responses to government and regulator consultations. Included below are links to consultation responses filed on behalf of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance.

“The ITU World Radiocommunication Conference of 2012 concluded that the current international regulatory framework can accommodate software defined radio and cognitive radio systems, hence dynamic spectrum access, without being changed. The development of systems implementing this concept, such as TV white spaces, is therefore essentially in the hands of national regulators in each country. For this, regulators will depend on state of the art best practices which are currently developed by ITU-R Study Groups 1, 5 and 6.”
