Allocation of frequencies for point-to-multipoint connections
Microwave point-to-multipoint links are directed connections between one and many predetermined fixed locations. Systems are used as infrastructure for the distribution of radio transmitted programs to transmission points, and the exchange of programs for mobile communications base station connections, and for connections between fixed telephony exchanges.
It is allowed to use radio frequencies specified in the General Act on Radio Frequency Utilisation Plan that are allocated for fixed point-to-multipoint applications.
The Agency begins the procedure for frequency allocation after receiving an application. If it determines that the interest in a certain frequency exceeds availability, issues an announcement in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, that it plans to allocate radio frequencies for point-to-multipoint connections. It must always issue such an announcement whenever it receives an initiative from an interested party for a public tender. This is followed by a public tender, but only in the event that interest exceeds technical capabilities. Otherwise the Agency allocates radio frequencies according to the General Administrative Procedure Act.
The Agency issues a decision on allocating radio frequencies (ODRF), with which use is permitted on a particular frequency channel. Also specified are: modulation, fixed location, transmission direction (azimuth and elevation), as well as minimum demands regarding the technical parameters.
