Last year’s concepts of liberalization is getting into all spheres of activities. It is also applicable to spectrum management system. Most experts say about necessity of creation of the open and flexible structure of spectrum management system that will develop new technical, social and economic benefits due to more liberalized approach in spectrum access. The way of liberalization is working out of alternative spectrum management methods. In given article the alternative spectrum management method by interference management is considered. Authors characterize various aspects of interference management with the purpose to answer to the main question: whether it is possible to use a spectrum more effectively than to apply spectrum management methods which regulate interferences, instead of transmitters' parameters regulation?
Key words: spectrum management, liberalization, radio-frequency spectrum, spectral efficiency, spectrum allocation, radio emissions, interference level, transmitter power, antenna orientation, interference conditions, current spectrum utilization, spectrum conversion, concept WAPECS, spectrum saving.
