2012 | Action Number: IC0905

Paving the way for the mobile access of the future

  • Author(s): COSt Office

Ever since GSM (Global Systems for Mobile Communications) extended the accessibility of mobile phones to almost every member of our society, the drive for wireless communications has been relentless. This has, however, put enormous pressure on the provision of the essential resource needed for wireless information exchange – the radio spectrum. As a result, the radio spectrum – initially a wireless facilitator – has now become a bottleneck. Ironically, it is this same spectrum which often inhibits the innovation of new services and impacts on the outreach, capacity and quality of service of current wireless communications systems.

This COST factsheet highlights how COST Action IC0905 deals with the issues at hand.
