At JTC-04:
Laos and Thailand agreed to implement Frequency
Registration along Lao PDR and Thailand common border area for
cellular mobile, Broadcasting, PMR and Microwave service.
Procedure:

Thai/Lao Administration

Administration
At LTC-04:
Both sides agreed to begin frequency registration with location
within 1 km from the reference line. Both sides will submit information
for registration within 3 months after agreed on the registration format
Due to lack of understood between Laos and
Thailand on the definition and process of
procedure of frequency registration. then, DoT
need to have a discussion with NBTC in JTC-5
DoT would like to propose to:
Define every words of the procedure of Frequency
registration.
Register Mobile cellular 2G (900 MHz and 1800
MHz), 3G 2100 MHz, etc, respectively.

Coordination Services Area


The 5th Joint Technical Committee on Coordination and Assignment of Frequencies along
Thailand - Lao PDR Common Border Meeting (JTC-5)
20-22 October 2014, Thailand
Background
At JTC-3
Thailand and Lao PDR agreed that the coordination services area for broadcasting
service is within 30 kilometers from the common border. The registration of
broadcasting station within this area is required once the registration procedure
has been adopted.

At JTC-4
Thailand and Lao PDR agreed in principle to use ESRI Map to create the
coordination service area.
The coordination services area
30-km coordination distance from the common border from ESRI Map
Coverage of DTTB main sites at common border areas

i. There are 12 provinces along Thailand Lao PDR common border.


ii. There are 4 DTT main sites which are located within the coordination zone
(30 km from borderline).
Frequency Registration for Broadcasting Service
the registration of broadcasting stations within coordination service area.
(30 km distance from common border as indicated in the previous meeting. )

Proposal on the frequency registration and coordination


Digital TV Digital Radio Existing Analogue TV Existing F.M.
The frequency registration The information exchange The frequency registration may The frequency registration may
is required. will be applied (if any). be applied when necessary. be applied for authorized
stations, when necessary.
The information exchange will
be applied on case-by-case
basis.

Note :
1. The proposal is to give a priority to the frequency registration to Digital TV Service, because it is a
new technology and a number of new stations will be installed. The existing stations will be the
second priority, since the existing stations are able to coexist for several years.
2. When the information exchange is applied, the following information is needed to submit:
(1) Coordinates (2) ERP (3) Frequency channel (4) Antenna height above ground level
Proposal
The meeting is invited to confirm of the coordination zone along Thailand
Lao PDR Common Border (30 kilometers from the common border).

The meeting is invited to consider and agree on the proposal on the


registration and coordination of broadcasting stations within the coordination
zone.

Introduction
NBTC has a collaboration project with ITU:
Completed the detailed planning for 39 main sites in February 2014
The detailed planning for additional sites already start and will be accomplished at
mid 2015
The planning consists of 3 layers
Main sites
Additional sites
PI gap fillers
There are 39 service areas with 6 MUXs per area (39 main sites)
Due to lacking of spectrum (only 510-790 MHz), some sites will be assigned a
temporary channel to be used before ASO
6th MUX is for community service and will be available after ASO
DTT Frequency Planning
Frequency Range : UHF 510 790 MHz
Bandwidth : 8 MHz
Frequency Channel : Channel 26 - 60
Service Area : 39 service areas
Number of Main sites : 39 sites
5 MUXs (5 frequency channels) per Service Area
6th MUX will be available after Analog Switched-Off
6th MUX is reserved for community services
Infrastructure sharing between all MUXs
Frequency Planning Basic Approach:
Each main site will be MFN with others.
Each main site and its additional sites will be SFN.
Compatibility between D-D and D-A
FX reception coverage target is 95% of households

Proposal
The meeting is invited to take note of the information on deployment schedule and
DTT frequency plan for main sites along Thailand Lao PDR Common Border.

The meeting is invited to take note of the information on frequency re-planning to


avoid the usage of channel 37 at DTTB main site in Ubon Ratchathani. The frequency
re-planning has been done by Thailand, since Lao PDR expressed their difficulties to
change the frequency due to receivers specification and other technical constraints.

Currently, Thailand is reviewing the DTT frequency plan for additional sites.
Thailand will provide more information at the next JTC.

Background
As the 4th Ad-hoc meeting, the relevant parties (CAT, LTC and Lao
Government Agency) agreed to find solution of radio frequency interference
together.
Lao Government Agency informed in the meeting to use mitigation technique
solutions and after that CAT will retune frequency from F1 to F2 and/or F3 to
allow LTC to use F1.
CAT will consider the result and report back to Lao side. The conclusion will
be finalized before JTC-5 Meeting.
Update information
Jul 18, 2014 CAT requested MPT to update information from Lao
Government Agency.
On Sep 3, 2014 MPT informed CAT that Lao Government Agency has
already reduced power for 3 CDMA sites from 50 W to 40 W since 15
Aug 2014.
Next step solution
CAT will monitor interference problem and finalized at the end
of September 2014
- If the interference from Lao Government Agency still exist, CAT
will request the Lao Government Agency to reduce power again
and/or use the mitigation techniques.
- If there is no interference, CAT will inform to Lao Government
Agency and plan with LTC to implement frequency retune
process in the 5th JTC meeting.

DTAC believes that significant improvement on ETL network is achieved.


The number of affected sectors reduces from more than 300 sectors to around
160 sectors.
The occurrence of interference band 4-5 should also reduce .

ETL should share network KPIs for analytical purpose.

STL
Received Signal Level from STL

It is found that 64% of the samples has Rx Level > -85 dBm, 20% of the samples is
between -85 to -90 dBm and 16% of the samples is < -90 dBm .

Corrective Action
ETL & STL is required to change PSC to be in
range; 256-511.
RSCP from both ETL & STL also need to be
controlled to be under -100 dBm.
