Chair: Tony Lavender, CEO, Plum Consulting and Co-chair Cluster 2

The performance of receivers (and indeed transmitters) have a direct impact on spectrum efficiency. Yet optimising receiver performance is very much a question of balancing competing priorities and factors. On a technical front, this entails balancing factors such as filter performance, modulation levels, receiver sensitivity, resilience to interference and transmitter power and characteristics. On a commercial level the balance involves optimising desirable performance improvements with costs, economies of scale across international markets as well as developing strategies on what can be done in the short term against long term technology improvements.
