In the current scenario of mobile communications development, it is important to know the actual usage of the frequencies assigned to broadband mobile services, in order to define the most interesting bands and their advantages.

New fundamental technical challenges are arising, particularly with regard to the coexistence between television and mobile systems, and the propagation of radio signals.

Apart from the evolution of mobile and personal communications, the importance of mobile radio communications is rising also in public security systems. The Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) system, developed in the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) upon request of the European Union, is an unparalleled system, irreplaceable in some contexts.
