Date Added: Aug 2009

Roaming capabilities are essential to providing users of the NBDS with seamless or near seamless nationwide services. Delivering those capabilities requires functionality in the network to support authentication. It may also require legal and financial arrangements between network operators and between operators and a clearinghouse provider. As with many other issues related to the NBDS, the specific arrangements depend on both technical and governance considerations, including roles played by the PSBL, local builders, and D Block licensees/private commercial partners in building, owning, and operating the network.
