This paper discusses the current aspects of the surveillance and management of the electromagnetic spectrum under various topics that are vital to wireless communications. On the basis of the recent technological advancements in conjunction with the discussions on the global approaches toward electromagnetic spectrum monitoring, the paper addresses short-, medium-, and long-term strategies in wireless communications for monitoring, governing, and managing the electromagnetic spectrum of leading countries and multinational organizations. Furthermore, it proposes a novel spectrum monitoring strategy for next-generation wireless systems and outlines the implications of the proposed strategy.
