As the EU’s Strategy for a Digital Single Market unfolds, new spectrum-sharing approaches such as Licensed Shared Access (LSA) are helping to shape the future of citizens’ and industry’s connected experiences. LSA is a key example of policy-enabled technology innovations that can free up more quality spectrum resources on a shared basis to support the many needs of the connected single market, from Industry 4.0 to the many flavours of the Internet of Things. In the run-up to the World Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC-15), spectrum sharing will also play a key role in the development of 5G.

This event will present the world’s first LSA pilot undertaken by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Economic Development under the technical coordination of Fondazione Ugo Bordoni and with the involvement of industrial partners from numerous European countries: Nokia Networks, PosteMobile, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. from Italy; Cumucore and Fairspectrum from Finland; and Red Technologies from France. The event will also be an opportunity to discuss plans for new trials in France, the European regulatory framework harmonizing the use of the 2.3-2.4 GHz band for mobile use on an LSA basis, the importance of C-band sharing for 5G as well as the role of the upcoming DSM review of the telecoms framework.
