Interoperability and mobile broadband data (spectrum) on the European political agenda

During this years June session of the European Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) Ministers Council meeting, interoperability was again placed high on the political agenda by the agreement of a Council Recommendation on improving radio communication. The Recommendation tasks the spectrum regulators to find additional spectrum for future mission critical high speed data communication and asks member states to work with their local spectrum regulators. It also asks the European Commission to further the development – including funding – of the Inter System Interface, which still needs to be deployed between member countries for cross border cooperation.
