Radio spectrum management is inherently strategic. Decisions taken will affect telecommunication operators’ access to radio spectrum for several years from now, which has major implications for investment planning.
Competing needs between telecommunication operators and other players such as the military, governmental and other networks may create new allocation priorities. It is more and more evident that mobile broadband networks need new capacity. Last generation devices (smartphones, tablets, dongles, consoles) and new applications available on the market are congesting the existing networks. Making additional radio spectrum available is essential to address rapidly increasing mobile traffic and also to provide broadband to rural and remote areas. The Spectrum Working Group (WG) priorities are listed below.
ETNO WGs are the engine of the Association. The bottom-up approach when formulating ETNO position papers ensures that all ETNO member interests are captured. The Spectrum WG Chair is Anna Matsouka of OTE: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Vice-Chair of this WG is Päivi Ruuska, Telia Company.
