Eric Fournier

Director | ANFR


In Europe, the satellite receiving earth stations are now concentrated in 3.8-4.2 GHz. Further reducing this spectrum in Europe would be detrimental to the long term viability of this frequency which has unique propagation characteristics. Could an efficient sharing mechanism allow protection and development of earth stations while allowing some local access for low/medium power 5G verticals?


Professional Experience:

After having started his career in the Orange Labs, he joined ANFR when created in 1997. He was chairman of the ECC from 2013 to 2018 and, before, chairman of ECC/CPG and of ECC/WGSE. He was deputy head of the French delegation for RRC-06, WRC-07, WRC-12, WRC-15 and WRC-19.

Present activities:

As director in the ANFR, he is responsible for preparing the revisions of the French national table of spectrum allocation and for coordinating French positions in international meetings on spectrum within ITU, CEPT and EU. He is currently the chairman of the RSPG Good Offices addressing issues of cross-border coordination and interference within the EU.
