Workshop starts @9AM


The World Radio Conferences (WRCs) take place every three to four years under the UN body International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The next one, WRC-19, will take place in 2019, from 28 October to 22 November in Sharm-el-Sheikh Egypt. What happens there will have an impact on important issues such as 5G mobile broadband, Safety of Railways, Future driverless Cars, Earth stations on Aircraft, Ships and Vehicles and many other critical wireless services and applications? Because the stakes are extremely high, it is important for everyone with an interest in the wireless industry to take active part in the WRC preparatory process.

To help with India’s preparations, ITU-APT is organizing the third national workshop on WRC-19 on December 15, 2018 at Hotel le Meridian in New Delhi. The conference will cover areas such as spectrum for 5G, spectrum to support Railways and Intelligent transportation, spectrum for drones and HAPS, as well as regulatory regime for satellites.

Why are the WRC preparations so important for India?

The WRC decides who gets to use what frequencies. The formal task of WRC is to review and update the international treaty called Radio Regulations that govern spectrum use. It also coordinates satellite orbits. The WRC can be intimidating to outsiders. The WRC process has helped create economies of scale and make telecom services coexist with each other for decades without interference.
