The 6GHz harmonisation decision makes 480 MHz of additional spectrum available in the 6 GHz band for Wi-Fi networks. It means further improvements in network performance and faster, more stable connections for teleconferencing, sharing content and innovative services.
Radio Spectrum Policy (Unit B.4)
This publication is made pursuant to Point 3.1 of Annex 1 to Financial Regulation 2018 that provides for an ex-ante publication on the Institutions’ websites of contracts with a value up to 138.999,99 EUR.
The purpose of this call for tenders is to examine latest developments and trends that are relevant for the current and future use of the 470-694 MHz band, which the European Parliament and Council Decision on the UHF band safeguarded for terrestrial broadcasting until at least 2030 (study reference: CNECT/2021/MVP/0020).
The study analyses market and technology developments and their potential effect on policy objectives for GSM, the Global System for Mobile Communications.
The Commission has adopted the Implementing Decision to improve safety of road and urban rail transport. The Decision harmonises across Member States the use of the 5.9 GHz band for real-time information exchange on safety conditions in connected transport.
On 17 June 2020, the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) and the Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG) organised a workshop with the European Commission (DG Connect) to discuss the progress made since the second workshop in October 2019 on the authorisation processes in relation to 5G spectrum bands.
The Commission has adopted the Implementing Regulation on small-area wireless access points, or small antennas, which are crucial for the timely deployment of 5G networks that are delivering high-capacity and increased coverage as well as advanced connection speeds. The Regulation specifies the physical and technical characteristics of small cells for 5G networks. It aims to help simplify and accelerate 5G network installations, which should be facilitated through a permit-exempt deployment regime, while ensuring that national authorities keep oversight.
On 21 October 2019, the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) and the Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG) organised a workshop with the European Commission (DG Connect) to discuss the progress made since the first workshop in April 2019 on the authorisation processes in relation to 5G spectrum bands.
