July 2013 - (The TETRA and Critical Communications Association) Broadband spectrum for mission critical communication needed
EU member states, in cooperation with the Commission, are in preparation for the ITU World Radiocommunications Conference 2015 to identify a single spectrum environment for Broadband Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) services and to define conditions for taking the 700 MHz band to mobile use, including conditions for PPDR use of the band. TCCA recommends that a sufficient amount of 700 MHz frequency resources shall be made available for these mission critical communication services.
