Abstract:Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) is an exciting new technology, which introduced a paradigm shift in spectrum access. As a result it also changes the role of the regulator. On one hand the scarce radio spectrum should be used in an optimal way, so that the society is best served. On the other hand interference between users and networks should be avoided. For that reason rules have to be defined for spectrum use, which are not only determined by technical parameters, also economical, legal, political and social constraints play an important role. This topic is called spectrum governance. For evaluation purposes a monitoring network is necessary, which is also supported by several papers, that argue the need for a monitoring network to assure compliance of (DSA) radio equipment with regulatory rules. Traditional networks of fixed monitoring sites are not qualified anymore, as modern communication use high frequencies, above the 800 MHz, and communicate mainly locally. In this paper, we propose to extent this monitoring network by a fleet of mobile monitoring vehicles.
