Spectrum strategy for the Norwegian Communications Authority

The Norwegian Communications Authority (Nkom) has published a new spectrum strategy for the period 2015-2016. The spectrum strategy is based on Nkom's main strategy and the main goals are that Nkom is up to date on developments, a proactive facilitator for the actors and the best source of knowledge for all issues concerning frequency management.

The Norwegian Communications Authority's (Nkom) frequency management shall be organised in such a way that it provides the greatest possible benefit to society over time. Nkom believes that few restrictions, few administrative burdens, and intervention from the Authority only when necessary will help ensure that the use of radio frequencies provides the greatest possible benefit to society over time. The purpose of Nkom's frequency management is to define the framework conditions and otherwise minimise the burden for the industry by means of simple processes, easily accessible information and prompt allocation of frequencies. Nkom believes that this will lead to innovation and rapid introduction of new services, which are expected to provide significant social benefits.

The draft spectrum strategy went through public consultation during the autumn of 2014. Based on the inputs, Nkom has done some adjustments to the document and the final spectrum strategy is now published.
