When it comes to wireless connectivity for smart grid applications, utilities have predominantly utilized unlicensed spectrum bands rather than acquiring licensed spectrum. The reasons are many: licensed spectrum is expensive, many existing smart grid solutions use unlicensed spectrum, and to date these solutions have done the job well. As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes pervasive, there are risks that unlicensed spectrum bands will become clogged. Data transmission may slow or become unreliable.

As such, spectrum ownership or other creative partnering or lease deals will become more attractive—or even critical—to long-term utility solutions. As with real estate, they are not making more spectrum. It always (eventually) rises in value and should be thought of as a long-term investment. There are many licensed spectrum options available to utilities—more than many may realize. And while networking investments are often driven by shorter-term rate case and regulator demands or specific application needs, licensed spectrum has advantages that will persist for utility owners (or leaseholders) for decades. As the world becomes increasingly connected, those with exclusive rights to spectrum will own an ever more valuable asset—one with the potential to become a real competitive advantage in the coming decades.

This Navigant Research report covers the options for and case studies of licensed wireless solutions for utilities and provides actionable recommendations for utilities. The study provides an overview of 17 licensed spectrum bands available for purchase or lease for utility applications and discusses the use cases and rationale for utility spectrum ownership over the long term. It explains the differences between leased and owned spectrum and describes emerging shared spectrum paradigms. The report also provides examples of utility spectrum purchases and discloses pricing trends. Private LTE options are discussed as well, including unlicensed LTE.

  • What are the advantages of licensed spectrum for utilities?
  • Why will utilities increasingly need licensed spectrum?
  • What is spectrum sharing?
  • Which vendors own licensed spectrum for utility lease in smart grid deployments?
  • What spectrum bands are available for utility lease or purchase?

At Least a Dozen Licensed Spectrum Options Are Readily Available and Affordable for Utilities Today

Spectrum ownership and creative deals are expected to become more attractive for long-term utility solutions

March 20, 2018

A new report from Navigant Research examines licensed wireless solutions for utilities, providing recommendations and an overview of 17 spectrum bands available.

When it comes to wireless connectivity for smart grid applications, utilities have predominantly used unlicensed spectrum bands rather than acquiring licensed spectrum, in part because of the high cost. However, as the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes pervasive, data transmission may slow or become unreliable, prompting utilities to consider the switch to licensed solutions.  According to a new report from Navigant Research, there are at least a dozen licensed spectrum options readily available and affordable for utilities today.

“While smart grid solutions that use unlicensed spectrum bands are readily available and have done the job for utilities to date, as more people and things become connected, there is a real risk of interference and performance degradation in unlicensed bands,” says Richelle Elberg, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “Utilities should consider licensed spectrum options for a variety of applications today and to ensure network control and capacity availability for the longer term.”

Spectrum ownership or other creative partnering or lease deals are expected to become more attractive—or even critical—to long-term utility solutions, according to the report. While networking investments are often driven by shorter-term rate case and regulator demands or specific application needs, licensed spectrum has advantages that will persist for utility owners (or leaseholders) for decades, providing those with exclusive rights a real competitive advantage.

The report, Accessing Licensed Spectrum for Future-Proof Utility Networks, covers the options for and case studies of licensed wireless solutions for utilities and provides actionable recommendations for utilities. The study provides an overview of 17 licensed spectrum bands available for purchase or lease for utility applications and discusses the use cases and rationale for utility spectrum ownership over the long term. It explains the differences between leased and owned spectrum and describes emerging shared spectrum paradigms. The report also provides examples of utility spectrum purchases and discloses pricing trends. Private LTE options are discussed as well, including unlicensed LTE.
