The PolicyTracker Public Sector Spectrum Conference
On average 60% of prime spectrum is in public use, and as demand increases so does the pressure on the sector to maximise efficiency, increase sharing and release frequencies. But how can this be reconciled with the need to build broadband networks for public sector users like the military and emergency services?

For European spectrum regulators public sector spectrum is "one of the priorities for 2009", according to Dániel Pataki, chairman of the EU Radio Spectrum Policy Group.
With the Group currently drawing up recommendations on best practice in the field and mounting commercial interest in accessing public sector bands, this PolicyTracker conference is an ideal opportunity to explore the implications of new policies in this emerging area.
Liberalisation of the sector is finding favour in the UK and Australia, but other countries are pursuing different approaches.
The full agenda is available here but topics at this conference will include:
- Case studies of public sector spectrum policy from around the world
- Commercial possibilities in public sector spectrum
- Wireless broadband in former military frequencies
- The use of public sector spectrum for backhaul services
- Legal and technical issues
- Market mechanisms in the public sector
New research on public sector spectrum policy
Among the speakers are leading experts from several countries, including:
- Professor Martin Cave, Warwick University
- Jean-Yves Montfort, RSPG and ANFR
- Peter Anker, military spectrum expert at the Dutch economics ministry
Jeppe Jepsen, Motorola and PSC-Europe
