[802SEC] WRC-15 Final Press Release and Provisional Final Acts of WRC-15

Dear EC and RR-TAG,


I have just uploaded to 802.18’s Mentor web site the Provisional Final Acts of WRC-15 (18-15-0073-00-0000) and the Final Press Release (18-15-0074-00-0000) describing the results of the conference. I expect that the Final Press Release will be useful as it highlights what the ITU-R viewed as significant spectrum related developments of the WRC. The Provisional Final Acts themselves are more than 450 pages.


Among topics that the WRC addressed was the identification of the 3.4 – 3.6 GHz band, and portions of other frequency bands, for mobile broadband services. Also identified for mobile broadband was the use of the 694 – 790 MHz frequency band in ITU Region 1 (Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Africa). As with any action taken by a WRC it will be up to individual Administrations to develop the rules for the use of those and other bands identified by the WRC. Spectrum for IMT above 6 GHz will be considered at WRC-19.


Thus far there has not been a report of the outcome of the Radiocommunication Assembly which occurred the week prior to the WRC. One significant change that is known was the restructuring of Study Group 5 (Terrestrial Services). While previously there had been Private Sector chairs for some Working Parties in SG5 those positions are now filled by Member States. The exact break down of who is chairing Working Party, e.g. WP5D which deals with IMT, has not appeared on the ITU-R web site.


Glad to discuss.


Best regards,
