During its June 2016 meeting in Sweden, ECC Plenary approved ECC DEC(16)02 entitled "Harmonised technical
conditions and frequency bands for the implementation of Broadband Public Protection and Disaster Relief (BB-PPDR)
In this decision, CEPT concluded on several harmonized frequency arrangements for BB-PPDR at 450MHz:
2x5,5MHz allocation: 450,5 - 456 MHz (UL) /460,5 - 466 MHz (DL)
2x5,5MHz allocation: 452 - 457,5 MHz (UL) /462 - 467,5 MHz (DL)
For those frequency arrangements, the UE unwanted emissions levels above 470 MHz shall be -42 dBm / 8MHz.
CEPT has sent a Liaison Statement to 3GPP in which CEPT kindly requests 3GPP to consider the inclusion of the
technical requirements as described above in the 3GPP specifications.
Input document submitted at RAN4#80 meeting (August 2016) from European administrations, PPDR
organisations, manufacturers and operators indicated their intention to support the standardization of 700 MHz and 450
MHz PPDR bands for Europe, including the frequency bands above.
Many administrations in Europe plan to deploy LTE based PPDR services in this harmonized frequency arrangement
and therefore support the development of a new E-UTRA band that includes this spectrum and taking into account the
above OOBE requirements.
In addition to future PPDR services there are a range of existing CDMA2000 networks working in the 451-456 / 461-
466 MHz band in Europe. Operators in Austria, Czech Republic, Germany and the Netherlands among others are
providing broadband or machine-type-communication services today and have the plan to deploy LTE Private Mobile
Radio (PMR) / Public Access Mobile Radio (PAMR) services once this new E-UTRA band is introduced in 3GPP
