This study was carried out as part of EU preparations for the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-07) to be held in 2007. At this conference, delegations from nearly all countries across the globe will assemble to consider the demands of wireless services for radio spectrum use over the next ten to fifteen years. One of the main purposes of the study therefore was to develop a coherent European view on the future use and management of the radio spectrum. It was also recognised that there is a need for a broad approach to the definition of requirements, one based on a realistic assessment of demand and not solely on technical capabilities or on suppliers' perceptions of market developments.
