Sharing & Planning Terrestrial Services

Helps Members to plan their terrestrial networks while sharing the spectrum with non-broadcasting services

The Project Group on Sharing & Planning Terrestrial services is part of the EBU's Strategic Programme on Spectrum and is carried out jointly with Broadcast Networks Europe. WRC-15 moved any potential co-primary allocation of the band 470 – 694 MHz to WRC-23. Also a review of the spectrum usage of the band 470 – 960 MHz shall be carried out between WRC-19 and WRC-23, which will create a new situation for DTT and PMSE.

This joint project group needs to prepare for these WRCs, not only in terms of coexistence studies, but also in ensuring EBU & BNE Members are informed of the potential benefits arising from the latest developments in broadcasting technologies in broadcasting bands.

  • To produce reports as required on system, frequency and network planning for broadcasting technologies (for example, Low-Power-Low-Tower networks, DAB+, LTE/eMBMS, WiB, developments of DVB-T2, wireless indoor provision of broadcasting services)
  • To study modelling aspects of coexistence, especially in the context of the preparations for WRC-19/23.
  • To study improvement of current coverage planning predictions and monitoring the quality of existing prediction technologies.
  • To follow the activities of and contribute to ITU-R, DVB, ETSI and CEPT groups dealing with items indicated above.
  • Monitor the relevant developments at the European level and support the EBU’s and BNE's members’ advocacy efforts.
  • To prepare internal technical papers intended to inform EBU and BNE members about possible consequences on their services of latest developments.
