The spectrum requirement calculation methodology for the future development of IMT-2000 and IMT-Advanced systems presented in Chapter 4 has been implemented into a software tool. The tool is called 'SPEctrum requirement calCULATOR for future developments of IMT-2000 and systems beyond IMT-2000' (SPECULATOR). The tool has been implemented in Microsoft (MS) Excel to allow wide usability and to achieve transparency in calculations. The tool is publicly available on the ITU web site (http://www.itu.int/ITU-R/study-groups/docs/speculator.do c). ITU used the tool to calculate the estimates of the spectrum requirements of IMT-Advanced at World Radiocommunication Conference 2007 (WRC-07).
