Draft BEREC Report on Interoperability of Number-Independent Interpersonal Communication Services (NI-ICS)
The objectives of this report are to present the main economic features and the state of the market for some NI-ICS and to analyse:
- the objectives, the scope and the “triggers” of interoperability obligations under both the DMA and the EECC,
- the potential technical approaches and the implementation challenges to be taken into account when applying these measures, as well as
- the interplay between the two regulatory frameworks. The current work focuses on messaging services, but other NI-ICS may be further analysed by BEREC in the future.
