Spectrum issues can be complex and have a major impact on an operator’s business. Also some issues will tend to crop up again and again in various countries. The Spectrum Strategy Management Group (the SSMG) is made up of experts on spectrum regulation and technical issues, enabling the GSMA’s members to benefit from operators’ collective knowledge.
The SSMG oversees the development of position papers and consultation responses to positively influence individual countries’ spectrum policy and regulation. The SSMG group also examines and analyses strategic radio spectrum issues at a global level and seeks to input them to various international fora, such as the ITU.
