The 10th of June, 2009, marks the first meeting of the Open Spectrum Alliance (OSA), a multi-disciplinary grouping of parties with a shared interest in working towards greater efficiency in the allocation, assignment and use of radio frequency spectrum in South Africa.
The OSA workshop will include guest speaker Steve Song, from the Shuttleworth Foundation, an overview of the current status of RF spectrum regulation in SA by WAPA Regulatory Advisor Dominic Cull, and an overview of Spectrum challenges in South Africa by Ronnie Seeber from Motorola.
WAPA and the Shuttleworth Foundation are founding members of the OSA, but the OSA is looking to rapidly grow support for progressive spectrum assignment models. Please get in touch with WAPA if your organisation would
be interested in supporting the OSA initiative.
