EC081 - ETNO Expert Contribution in response to the “Study on collective use of spectrum” performed by a consortium of behalf of the European Commission

Based on its Members' responsibilties, ETNO thinks a “collective use” of spectrum should be limited to some bands and technologies to remain manageable with regard to QoS and interference and the effective use of spectrum.

As public network operators, among ETNO members’ main business is the offering of radio services with Quality of Service (QoS) obligations/expectations for which licensed spectrum with low risk of harmful interference is a prerequisite. In addition to that, ETNO members offer a variety of supplementary services and applications according to customer demand, in particular WLAN access points in high density areas, and other applications based on SRD, e.g. traffic monitoring with RFID.
