Danbatta lists benefits of licensing 38, 42 GHz

The Executive Vice Chairman (EVC) of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta has listed some benefits of the latest licensing regime planned by the Commission on the 38 and 42 Gega Hertz (GHz) as well as re-planning of the 23 GHz, reports ITRealms.

Declaring open a one-day Stakeholders Consultative Forum on Licensing of 38 GHz and 42 GHz spectrum bands as well as re-planning of 23 GHz band in Lagos, Prof. Danbatta, who was represented at the occasion by Director, Public Affairs Department, Mr. Tony Ojobo, said that licensing these bands will among other things throw-up some benefits.

These, he listed to include addressing the growing demands of operators for spectrum for high speed and high capacity links for data-centric services.

This, Danbatta said will further assist the Commission’s drive for the National Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) initiative.

In addition, it would achieve the reduction of pressure and management challenges experienced with the traditional microwave frequency bands.

The growth in broadband traffic is on the increase and therefore additional spectrum resources would be required to avoid network challenges.

Therefore, he said, NCC foresees the Nigerian consumers leveraging on these resources to enjoy better broadband services, assuring that the Commission will continue to develop policies and guidelines in conjunction with stakeholders to deliver a better quality or experience for all.
