Coordination Agreement in 3400-3800 MHz frequency band signed
The traditional Regional Regulatory Forum for Europe, entitled „Universal Connectivity in Europe: The Current State and the Future Prospects“ took place from 28-29 September 2023 in Budva, Republic of Montenegro, in collaboration between the Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services of Montenegro (EKIP) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Like the previous years, the Forum gathered key electronic communication sector stakeholders, in an aim to provide a platform to discuss current challenges and opportunities in reaching universal connectivity in Europe.
On that occasion, a Technical Agreement between the national frequency management authorities of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia on border coordination of mobile/fixed communications networks (MFCN) in the frequency band 3400-3800 MHz was signed.
The signing of this agreement is the result of many months’ joint work on the harmonization of requirements, aiming to set the principles, technical provisions and administrative procedures necessary for the regulation of common MFCN system application in border areas, in order to provide equal access to the spectrum and operation without harmful interference, i.e. a more efficient use of radio frequencies in the above mentioned frequency band.
