Ericsson assisting Africa to roll out ICT

The African Telecommunications Union (ATU) and Ericsson have published a series of recommendations to enable governments and regulators across Africa to accelerate information and communications technology (ICT) and next-generation connectivity.

The recommendations include: awarding radio spectrum in a timely, predictable and cost-effective fashion to support affordable, high-quality delivery to spur smart technology initiatives; licensing should be technology neutral; countries should enable spectrum sharing by giving licensees the right to share spectrum voluntarily through means such as trading and national roaming agreements; adopting a licensing approach aimed at promoting the right mix of low-, mid- and high-band radio spectrum. This should ensure that all communications service providers (CSPs) have access to spectrum amount and type to support various use cases and enterprise and customer demands.
