EC082 - ETNO Expert Contribution on the harmonised use of radio spectrum by equipment using ultra-wideband (UWB) technology in the European Union

ETNO supports the technical requirements contained in ECC/DEC/(06)04, which enable the harmonised long-term introduction of UWB devices in Europe while ensuring adequate protection of existing radio services from harmful interference. ETNO is equally in favour of their replication in a European Commission Decision pursuant to the Radio Spectrum Decision in order to implement these conditions within the EU single market.

ETNO members provide public high quality radio communications services. To secure the necessary long-term basis for investment and innovation, radio spectrum utilisations avoiding harmful interference are essential. Interim solutions or spectrum designations with a high risk of interference might foster some innovation in the short-term, but at the expense of irreparable drawbacks to spectrum utilisation in the long-run.
Therefore, ETNO supports the technical requirements contained in ECC/DEC/(06)04, which enable the harmonised long-term introduction of UWB devices in Europe while ensuring adequate protection of existing radio services from harmful interference. ETNO is equally in favour of their replication in a European Commission Decision pursuant to the Radio Spectrum Decision in order to implement these conditions within the EU single market.
