RD264 - ETNO Reflection Document responding to the EC Public Consultation on a proposed framework for the selection and authorisation of operators to provide Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) across Europe in the 2 GHz frequency bands

ETNO welcomes the proposed approach for a Pan-European MSS Selection and Authorisation Process at the EU level and agrees with the MRP based procedure.
ETNO supports the general view that the regulatory framework to be applied to the 2GHz MSS bands must be based on principles which are demonstrably transparent, fair and non-discriminatory. ETNO takes the view that any station of the Complementary Ground Component (CGC) shall constitute an integral part of the Mobile Satellite System and shall be controlled by the satellite resource and Network Management System.

Furthermore, ETNO considers it as important that the assignment process does not discriminate against terrestrial network operators, by giving the easiest access to spectrum to projects that are based on their CGC.
