Norwegian civil protection agency seeks comments on emergency network of the future

Friday 15 December 2017 | 15:07 CET | News
The Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) is seeking comments from Norwegian mobile network operators, asking them how they envisage next generation emergency services network, called Nodnett. This follows the government's decision on 08 December to release available spectrum in the 700 MHz band to commercial operators in late 2018 or early 2019, and emergency calls will also be carried on commercial grids in future. The deadline for responses to DSB is 09 February 2018.
