hg0088管理an industrial 5g spectrum policy for europe
Policymakers recognise that Gigabit connectivity propels the digital transformation of both industry and society. A successful rollout of 5G across Europe is a necessary condition for this European digital transformation. Consistent and predictable regulation is critical, supported by policies that promote development and tackle fragmentation. Despite this, there is an ongoing regulatory discussion on the issue of whether internationally harmonised cellular spectrum should be ‘set aside’ for private localised use instead of auctioned to whoever is able to create the largest value to society, including nationwide public networks. Vodafone’s report, An industrial 5G Spectrum Policy for Europe, demonstrates that set-aside policies will lead to a significant consumer welfare loss, reducing the incentive for investment by distorting competition, inflating the costs of spectrum licences and limiting the ability of operators to build the best 5G networks possible for everyone. This report includes expert independent analysis and evidence from the consultancies Arthur D. Little and Compass Lexecon.
connecting europe for a better future - vodafone's policy priorities
Vodafone believes in the promise of Europe. Despite the significant and important progress driven by the Digital Single Market, we believe that Europe needs a step change: one that turbo-charges investment and lays the foundations for top-class European digital infrastructure through the creation of better conditions for digital solutions made in Europe and which builds trust in the digital society, empowering European citizens. The EU’s next strategic agenda spanning 2019-2024 will be pivotal. Vodafone’s Whitepaper, Connecting Europe for a Better Future looks at policies which could address the significant challenges that Europe faces today and which will ensure that Europe is in a position to be a global leader in the next phase of the digital revolution.
In the digital deployment report, we have identified six key policy aspects that, we believe, impact investors’ abilities to deploy competing fixed and mobile digital networks in a given market. Governments and policymakers can stimulate investment by examining their policies in each of these areas in comparison with peers and ensuring they have a plan to adopt best practice. This report provides policymakers with the best-practices and the degree of variation across our 12 EU markets and makes policy recommendations to improve the ease of digital infrastructure deployment.
a new iot regulatory framework for europe
The value IoT could bring to Europe is well recognised and if the regulatory landscape is right. Realising these benefits could transform Europe’s standing in terms of global competitiveness and 5G connectivity. IoT cuts across a wide variety of market sectors, emphasising the need for a cross-sectoral policy approach. Taking input from a number of different industries, Vodafone has prepared this white paper, which proposes a new regulatory framework for IoT in the EU.
realising the economic potential of machine-generated, non-personal data in the eu
In this report, commissioned by Vodafone, Deloitte considers the economic potential of machine-generated, non-personal data in the European Union. This type of data is particularly relevant to the Internet of Things and Deloitte’s review focuses on the agriculture, automotive, healthcare, smart city and manufacturing sectors. The report estimates the potential value of this form of data and how this value is derived from sharing. It also identifies barriers to that value being realised and makes policy recommendations to ease those barriers.
hg0088管理creating a gigabit society – the role of 5g
This study focuses on the important role that 5G mobile has to play in achieving the Gigabit Society vision, highlighting the consumer and industrial innovations that 5G will facilitate. It also makes recommendations on the key policy areas that need to be addressed in order to capitalise on the benefits that 5G can bring.
creating a gigabit society
Gigabit fibre networks are needed to digitise Europe’s industry. Vodafone has commissioned Arthur D. Little to examine the current and future connectivity needs of cutting-edge organisations in sectors ranging from education to energy and gaming to healthcare, as well as public sector organisations.

eCall - implementation status, learnings and policy recommendations
All of Vodafone's 12 EU mobile networks are able to recognise eCalls and are therefore "eCall ready". However, as full eCall implementation requires action on the part of national governments, automotive manufacturers and mobile operators, july-stars.commissioned this study from SBD. This was because we wanted to help address any remaining challenges that might exist before the eCall launch date of 31 March 2018, when new cars type approved in the EU must be equipped with an eCall device.
securing the benefits of industry digitisation
Regulatory and policy frameworks that will shape the digitisation of industry are currently being developed around the world. Vodafone has commissioned KPMG to assess the economic impact of different approaches to the regulation of enterprise services in areas such as Machine-to-Machine and the Internet of Things, net neutrality and cross-border data transfer.
