Ficora to oversee encrypted public satellite services

Monday 29 June 2015 | 11:49 CET | News
Finnish communications regulator Ficora said the Ministry of Transport and Communications has assigned it as the authority for a new satellite Public Regulated Service (PRS). It said the European satellite navigation system, Galileo, will produce encrypted PRS in future, intended mainly for authorities. It can also be used to support applications that are critical for society, both in disruptive situations under normal circumstances and in exceptional circumstances. Ficora's task at this point is to promote the introduction of the service in Finland.
