Challenges and opportunities of broadcast-broadband convergence and its impact on spectrum and network use

Event reports: 27/03/2014 - 19:32 to 01:00, Brussels, Belgium
The main aim of the workshop was to give stakeholders an opportunity to share views and to provide input to the study team – both during the event and in writing following the event. The team will hold subsequent workshops – to present preliminary analysis on 8 July 2014 and to present its final findings on 4 November 2014.

The European Commission has initiated a study, to be carried out by Plum Consulting and Farncombe to consider:

  • How audio-visual services will be delivered in Europe over the next 15 years
  • Whether Europe should move to a converged terrestrial wireless platform for the delivery of audio-visual (linear, on-demand) and internet (data) services over this period
  • The impact of future options for the delivery of audio-visual and data services on use of UHF spectrum (470-790 MHz) and possibly further sub-1 GHz spectrum.
