German Public-Safety Network Requests 450 MHz Spectrum for Data Services
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | Comments

The German public-safety network, BDBOS, said it requires 2 by 10 megahertz in the 450 MHz range to expand the digital radio network with high-performance data services in the future. Together with the already available frequencies in the 700 MHz range, an adequate supply of security and rescue forces in Germany could be ensured.

Demand is being coordinated within the German federal government. Both the Minister Presidents' Conference and the Federal Government's Digital Agenda note the need to provide a sufficient spectrum of spectrum for internal security. National and international studies have demonstrated the need for BDBOS authorities and organizations to meet the needs of the security and rescue teams.

For use by the TETRA-based BDBOS, 2 by 5 and 2 by 3 megahertz in the 700 MHz range were recently released. The frequency ranges are located in the nonharmonized area and experienced by the adjacent occupancies further restrictions, so they are ultimately not available to the extent necessary by the BDBOS. For this reason, further exclusive provision of frequencies in the 450 MHz range is important.

The spectrum will enable security and rescue teams in the future to use key communications services and functions in their mission to fulfill their mission of helping the citizens, a BDBOS statement said.
