As spectrum access is important to the nine categories of the UK's national infrastructure (e.g. emergency services, energy, health etc), the workshop will ask the question “Do users understand their spectrum access risk" and "Is spectrum access, therefore, a UK critical dependency and a resilience issue?” If so, are there spectrum policy initiatives that must be considered.
This workshop aimed to:
- Capture key potential spectrum access risks, (and any examples the attendees have)
- Describing what the impacts may be – loss of revenue, transport delays, H&S impacts
- Predict if the problem will get worse in the future
- Suggest policy initiatives to mitigate the issue.
The presentations are available to download at the end of the page.
