GSMA Welcomes Germany’s 5G Spectrum Award, but Cautions against Unnecessary Conditions15.11.2018 11:00 | Tiedote
The GSMA today welcomed the German government’s decision to release the entire 3.4 to 3.8 GHz band (C-Band), essential for the future development of 5G services globally. Making available all of the spectrum in this critical band for 5G, in a timely manner, shows Germany’s commitment to European and global 5G leadership. However, the GSMA warns that some of the currently proposed conditions on the allocation of these vital frequencies may slow Germany’s 5G future. Ultra-fast 5G networks will form the foundation of the world’s digital economy, supporting a wide variety of industry sectors. Imposing unnecessary conditions that limit mobile operators’ ability and potential to deliver 5G creates a risk for all, industries and citizens alike. “The C-Band is the most vital frequency band for 5G. Germany is demonstrating 5G leadership in the timely release of this vital spectrum, but risks undercutting its 5G future with unnecessary obligations,” said Mats Granryd, Director General, GSMA. “Sp
Entersekt Sets Sights on the Nordics15.11.2018 11:00 | Tiedote
Entersekt, an innovator in mobile-first fintech solutions, today announced its entry into the competitive Nordic market. The identity and payments enablement provider serves banks and other enterprises operating in 45 countries. Entersekt’s interest in Scandinavia derives from its openness to digital banking and payments innovation. Digitization may be transforming business in every corner of the world, but few regions have experienced the wholesale change in consumer payments behaviour that the Nordics have. While governments, central banks, and the banking industry as a whole have pushed a cashless agenda for several years now, many point to Nordic consumers’ enthusiastic adoption of cashless transacting as the true driver behind the boom in digital payments. Consumers in the region have never been hidebound to payments innovation, as smart card penetration rates demonstrated years ago. Payments-ready smartphones are, of course, everywhere and the retail NFC infrastructure is superb.
