UKE and ITU to develop terrestrial transmission maps

On 27 November 2013, the President of the Office of Electronic Communications Magdalena Gaj together with the ITU-D Director Brahima Sanou signed a letter of intention on the development of Interactive Terrestrial (Optical Fibres and Microwaves) Transmission Maps.


The map of Poland will form part of the map for the Europe region to be developed by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in the coming year. At present, similar maps are being finalized for other regions of the world: Africa, Asia and Pacific (see the ITU website).

Based on the letter signed, the President of UKE and ITU will cooperate and share information, including data on telecommunications infrastructure.

The map will be developed as part of independent and separate projects run by ITU and UKE. UKE will be involved in data collection, clearance of available data and their submission to ITU. In turn, ITU will cover the cost of data processing and presentation of the data obtained from the Polish side in the form of interactive maps. ITU will also cover the system maintenance costs.

The data submitted to ITU by the President of UKE will be based on seven general parameters, i.e.:
  • transmission network length,
  • node locations,
  • equipment type of terrestrial transmission network,
  • network capacity (bit rate),
  • number of optical fibres within the cable,
  • operational status of the transmission network,
  • percentage of population within reach of transmission networks.
