Abstract:

Because of the nations increasing demand for more telecommunications capacity, there is a continuing need for more efficient ways of sharing the radio spectrum. The conventional ways of allocating the spectrum are by frequency, space and time division. However, for systems using new technology this is inefficient. Hence, it is desirable to re-examine alternative procedures that might be necessary if the benefits of telecommunications are to be assured in the face of increased demand. Spread spectrum techniques, which are based on principles different than those currently used in spectrum allocation, seem to offer benefits for spectrum sharing and for some applications superior to those of frequency division. This thesis provides a summary of the principles upon which spread spectrum systems have developed and the progress of frequency management involving spread spectrum systems. This analysis considers several strategies to accommodate spread spectrum in frequency management and its role in future spectrum sharing opportunties. Author
