Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA)

The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance is a global organization advocating for laws and regulations that will lead to more efficient and effective spectrum utilization. Our membership spans multinationals, small- and medium-sized enterprises, and academic, research, and other organizations from around the world, all working to create innovative solutions that will increase the amount of available spectrum to the benefit of consumers and businesses alike.
Our Goals:
Closing the Digital Divide
The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance supports technical, regulatory, and business model innovations that can reduce the cost of deploying last-mile wireless networks and help to make wireless broadband access more affordable for people around the world.
Enabling the Internet of Things
The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance supports spectrum policies that can enable the burgeoning Internet of Things – with potentially billions of interconnected wireless devices operating on our behalf – increasing efficiency and improving quality of life.
Alleviating the “Spectrum Crunch”
The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance supports changing regulatory policies that create artificial spectrum scarcity and replace them with policies that will increase available bandwidth, reduce costs, and increase consumer choice.

Executive Director    
Prof. H Nwana

Prior to joining the Alliance in this newly created role, Nwana was Group Director of Spectrum Policy at Ofcom, the UK’s independent communications regulator, where he spearheaded dynamic spectrum management, specifically focusing on TV White Spaces for broadband, and led on all UK Spectrum Policy. Nwana has also recently founded Atlantic Telecoms and Media.

As a recognized authority in Telecoms, Media and Technology (TMT) Prof. Nwana has recently authored an authoritative book on TMT for Developing Economies where he strongly argues the case for Dynamic Spectrum and TV White Space access in combination with low cost models and technologies to provide Affordable and Accessible broadband to the next ‘5 billion unconnected’. This has already moved Dynamic Spectrum efforts and TV White Spaces up the agenda in Africa, Europe, Asia, and elsewhere.

Whilst at Ofcom, Nwana was responsible for multi-million pound policy projects including the UK’s Digital TV Clearance programme of Channels 61, 62 and 69. He also oversaw the completion of the policy implementation of the rest of the UK’s digital switchover programme, and the multi-billion pound successful auction of the released spectrum. Nwana was also the Chairman of the Ofcom Spectrum Clearance and Award programme which reported into the Ofcom Board as well as the British Government and commercially negotiated deals with UK broadcasters, broadcast transmission providers and radar manufacturers totalling over a hundred million pounds sterling.

Prior to Ofcom, Nwana was Managing Director for 4 years at Arqiva, the UK’s £800M leading transmissions provider, communications infrastructure and media services company. Before Arqiva, he was Executive Director at Quadriga Worldwide Ltd where he was instrumental in the introduction of digital technology and services to the hospitality industry across Europe, Middle East, and Africa including high speed Internet, Wi-Fi, digital pay TV and video-ondemand in over 1700 hotels. Before Quadriga, he was a venture capitalist for 2 years and, even earlier, a Senior award-winning and published technologist at BT plc for 5 years.
