The paper describes the need for the review of EU policy and regulation regarding mobile telecommunications, and the potential for infrastructure sharing for the delivery of mission-critical applications/services, networks and devices. The paper provides a summary of work carried out by the BroadMap project, which has studied the current telecom package of directives and regulations, network and information systems (NIS) directive and other related materials.
The paper said new considerations for pan-European regulation are needed quickly because many countries are ready to make decisions for the future of broadband public protection and disaster relief (PPDR) communications, disregarding European interoperability. These gaps in EU policy will make it difficult to mitigate issues arising from different commercial/public user equipment (UE)/national broadband implementations as they begin to become established within the next five years.
