SG Spectrum Allocation Should. Assure long-term ‘priority’ or ‘preferential’ access forutilities– Interference protection– Flexible geographic boundaries– 10 to 20 year time-frame Sufficient capacity for short & long-term requirements– 15 MHz supports three 5 MHz channels Basis: SGIP/NIST PAP-2 work & OpenSG Network TF– Some provision for additional spectrum Longer-term role of video surveillance ? Frequency band(s) that supports economical deployment– Range, penetration losses, equipment availability, etc. May be more than 1 band (network of networks)27

WiGRID Spectrum Alternatives Unlicensed (ISM bands), public networks– Can and will play a role– But not suitable for total end-to-end SGnetwork Public Safety Bands (700 MHz & 4900MHz) 1800 MHz (30 MHz allocated in Canada) TV ‘White Space’ (UHF) 3550-3650 MHz plus 3650-3700 MHz28
