Importance of Spectrum Monitoring
Spectrum is a limited natural resource of the country. Every citizen has the right for its legal and optimum utilization. The allocation of spectrum bandwidth for any wireless service is governed through an operating license based on certain terms and conditions. Under the provisions of Indian Telegraph Act 1885 and Indian Wireless Telegraphy Act 1933, the different types of public utility services using frequency spectrum for Wireless communication are being licensed in India. These terrestrial and satellite services using wireless technology are required to be licensed for regulating these services within the permissible limits so as to ensure simultaneous use of various types of services without getting interfered with each other. To maintain good quality of service to millions of end users, it is necessary that these service providers responsible for imparting services must adhere to the terms and conditions of Wireless Operational License granted under the above mentioned Acts by WPC Wing, Ministry of Communications & IT. Hence effective regulation and continuous monitoring of all types of wireless based services are required for legal & optimum utilisation of spectrum.
