CSA authorises 700MHz airport communications LTE trial

Charles de GaulleFrench media regulator the CSA has authorised Aéroports de Paris unit Hub One to begin a trial of the use of LTE in the 700MHz band – currently used for digital-terrestrial broadcasting – at Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport.

Hub One has been planning to test the use of 700MHz for critical communications between police, fire and security services at the airport, as a possible replacement for the current Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) communications system for the past year.

The CSA has granted authority to trial the use of the spectrum for a period of three months.
