U.K. Regulator Releases Spectrum Road Map
Thursday, March 31, 2022 | Comments

Ofcom has published its first spectrum road map, which sets out how the regulator is preparing to ensure that everyone in the U.K. can benefit from the rapid advances in cutting-edge wireless technology.

Radio spectrum is a finite and important resource of invisible waves that needs to be carefully managed so it can continue to deliver the wireless services we all need. As new services emerge, demand for spectrum is growing. As a result, Ofcom is taking a strategic approach to ensure that these innovative new technologies can be embraced alongside existing services. The road map highlights the work areas that Ofcom will focus on to ensure it delivers on its spectrum management strategy, which it set out in July.

The road map also explains how spectrum is used today and highlights some of the key market and technological trends Ofcom has considered in developing its future program of work. The proposed future areas of work are grouped into three themes: network evolution and convergence, accelerating innovation and spectrum sharing, and better data for improved spectrum management.

Ofcom is seeking feedback on its road map by 20 May. Find the road map here.
