DIGITALEUROPE's Views on Licensing and Authorisation towards 5G

DIGITALEUROPE's Views on Licensing and Authorisation towards 5G


Wireless innovation and technologies all rely on a common resource to deliver benefits: the radio spectrum. Without access to spectrum, there is no wireless innovation. It is unanimously recognised that spectrum policy, i.e. decisions about the terms and conditions under which technologies and networks access spectrum, have a decisive influence on wireless innovation and on the benefits that society derives from such innovations.

Spectrum access management and 5G are two critical policy topics which are both trying to address the needs of future wireless applications in terms of spectrum access. This paper tries to address these spectrum access needs regarding the terms and condition of access to spectrum, irrespective of specific bands, technologies and services.
