The digital communications sector is an important UK industrial sector in its own right and is a crucial lever for wider economic and social benefits. In addition to being a leading consumer of wireless applications, the UK is proactively developing and adopting spectrum-dependent new technologies, systems and services to maximise future economic benefits.
Spectrum has a very diverse range of use - from terrestrial and satellite communications and broadcasting; to emergency, aeronautical and maritime radio services and scientific activities. Without an adequate and suitable supply of spectrum with a fit-for-purpose regulatory framework much of the economic and social benefits from spectrum will be undermined.
It is therefore essential that the diverse range of spectrum users (across the value chain) participate in the Spectrum Forum so that it provides the expert insights across the range of uses and assists the Government and Ofcom in developing a fit for purpose spectrum policies and regulations.
The Forum will be industry-led and involvement in the Forum will be open to the full range of UK spectrum users.
In this context the term 'spectrum users' is to be interpreted in the widest sense -including all industry sectors which use (or will use) wireless techniques and organisations involved in the entire value chain in these activities.
- Become involved in the UK Spectrum Policy Forum to ensure your current and future spectrum needs are represented.
- Keep up-to-date and be involved as Industry and Government develop a medium and long-term UK spectrum strategy.
