Ofcom’s Spectrum Management Strategy for the 2020’s

Ofcom’s Spectrum Management Strategy for the 2020’s

Ofcom has published a statement on its spectrum strategy, identifying three areas of increased focus:

Supporting wireless innovation: Making it even easier for a broad range of users to access spectrum by making more spectrum available for innovation before its long-term future use is certain; working to support innovation in new wireless technologies; and expanding work to understand, assist and inform the broad range of organisations who may benefit from wireless technologies in the future.

Licensing to fit local and national services: Supporting the growing diversity of wireless services and providers by considering further options for localised spectrum access when authorising new spectrum use.

Promoting spectrum sharing: Encouraging users to share access to spectrum with others.
