The Synthesis Report contains an overview of the findings of the project: Mapping European Wireless Trends and Drivers. It aims to present maps of emerging wireless technologies in Europe and the current trends in development. It also analyses the drivers that could support these emerging technologies, with particular emphasis on safety and security, and mobile virtual communities. It examines the effect that the regulatory environment will have on the evolution of these alternative wireless technologies and the implications for the Europe. Finally, it identifies policy options for European Union and Member States.
