European Forum for Spectrum Coexistence launches first White Paper on spectrum policy
As Commissioner Neelie Kroes made important announcements in Brussels at the 7th Annual European Spectrum Management Conference, Cable Europe, as a member of the European Forum for Spectrum Coexistence (EFSC), launches a white paper on spectrum, Coexistence: The Missing Element in Current Spectrum Policy.
The European Forum for Spectrum Coexistence supports the European Commission’s objectives shared by Member States to harmonize conditions regarding the availability and efficient use of the radio spectrum in the EU. This represents an important component of the wider policy initiative called the “Digital Agenda” and the first Radio Spectrum Policy Programme which was launched by Commissioner Kroes to deliver sustainable economic, social and cultural benefits from Europe’s digital single market. But without coexistence among all components of the electromagnetic ecosystem as a key tenet written into EU rules and regulations, which impact Member States and their citizens, these worthy policy objectives will struggle to become reality.
