Agenda 8.2 Next conference Agenda


At WRC
-
2003 when ITU adopted Resolution 646 for identification of
regionally harmonized frequency bands for future advanced solutions to meet
the needs of public protection (PP) agencies and organizations, the needs of
mobile broadband and possible technology solutions to satisfy those needs
were not known.


The focus in 2003 was to identify bands for mission critical voice and data for
PPDR agencies. The broadband applications particularly video were thought
to be relevant only for hot spot coverage


Over last few years, many broadband technologies, particularly IMT based
technologies such as LTE have been customized to meet the needs of Public
safety agencies


Video surveillance and usage by the PPDR agencies has become crucial to
saving lives.


It has been eight years since WRC adopted the last PPDR Resolution


Resolution 646. The time is right for review of this resolution

Agenda item
1.17
: Sharing in
790
-
862
MHz


Considering the strong likelihood of interference to the existing services
from new IMT band in EMEA, JTG
5
-
6
was set up to do these studies.
These initial ITU studies by JTG
5
-
6
were focused on protecting the
Broadcasting services from the adjacent new IMT service.


According to the CPM report, only three issues have been identified,
corresponding to the three different sharing pairs with mobile service:

1.
Issue A:
Issues between broadcasting service and the mobile service;

2.
Issue B:
Issues between the aeronautical
radionavigation

service in
Region
1
and the mobile service in Region
3

3.
Issue C:
Issues between the fixed service and the mobile service


JTG
5
-
6
did not consider the likelihood of interference from IMT to the
existing Public safety services in Region
1
or Region
3
. as it was
considred

to by a WP

Agenda item
1.19
: Cognitive Radio & SDR

1.19

to consider regulatory measures and their relevance, in order to
enable the introduction of software
-
defined radio and cognitive radio
systems, based on the results of ITU
-
R studies, in

accordance with
Resolution

956
(WRC
-
07
)
;



SDR and CRS technologies are expected to provide
additional flexibility and offer improved efficiency to the
overall spectrum use.


Any system that uses SDR or CRS technologies must
operate in accordance with the provisions of the Radio
Regulations

.



Agenda item
1.19
: Cognitive Radio & SDR


We

fully support the common APT view that SDR and
CRS are not radiocommunication services as defined in
Article
1
of the Radio Regulations.


SDR and CRS are technologies that can be
implemented in systems of any radiocommunication
services and there is no need for any specific
frequency allocation in the Radio Regulations for any
system of a radiocommunication service using SDR
and/or CRS technologies.


We fully support the common APT proposal to
support Method A (No change to the Radio Regulations
and suppression of Resolution
956

(WRC
-
07
)
).

Agenda item
1.14
: New VHF radar allocations

to consider requirements for new applications in the radiolocation
service and review allocations or regulatory provisions for
implementation of the radiolocation service in the range
30
-
300
MHz, in
accordance with Resolution
611
(WRC
07
)

Background


Resolution

611

(WRC
-
07
)

was adopted at WRC
-
07
to consider a primary
allocation to the RLS in the portion of the band
30
-
300
MHz for the
implementation of new applications in the Radiolocation service (RLS) with
an estimated requirement of
2

MHz band.


Currently the only primary allocation is in Region
2
in the frequency band
138
-
144
MHz.



This agenda item was adopted to address existing lack of spectrum
available for radiolocation service in VHF band required for large
-
scale air
and space surveillance operations


Developments of these new applications in the RLS are closely related to
significant growth in the number of space objects including artificial debris.

Agenda item
1.5
: Harmonized spectrum for ENG

to consider worldwide/regional
harmonization of spectrum for electronic
news gathering (ENG),taking into account the results of ITU
-
R studies, in
accordance with Resolution
954
(WRC
-
07
)



Background & Issues


ENG operates terrestrially in appropriate bands allocated to
broadcasting, fixed and mobile services


Methods of satisfying this agenda item can be categorized into the
following:


Rationalization: Using available technology to ensure the most
efficient use of frequencies within administrative regulations (Method
A)


Harmonization: Global or regional agreement to employ a
harmonised spectrum use in specific bands (Method B and C)


Combination of both rationalization and harmonization (Method D)


Need to ensure protection and growth of other land mobile services

Agenda item
1.5
:
Methods to Satisfy Agenda Item
1.5


Four methods were proposed to satisfy harmonization of tuning
ranges for ENG systems


Method A:
Approval of a WRC Resolution encouraging the
development of a database of frequency used in each country for ENG;
and no change to RR in Article
5


Method B:
Include a WRC Recommendation/Resolution a list of
frequency bands for harmonization of tuning ranges for ENG
applications


Method C
: Development and approval of ITU
-
R
Recommendation/Report listing the preferred tuning ranges/frequency
bands on a country, Region
-
wide or Worldwide basis for ENG
applications.


Method D:
Development of WRC Recommendation with a list of
frequency bands/tuning ranges for ENG use. In addition, this method
proposes a WRC Resolution intended to encourage the development
of a database of frequency band for cross border deployment and
further study on ENG in the ITU

Agenda item
1.5
: Harmonized spectrum for ENG


Considerations


By WRC
-
12
, it is not possible to identify the frequency
bands/tuning ranges for the harmonization of ENG spectrum


Might be necessary to adopt an interim measure, such as a ENG
database to facilitate ENG deployment


Harmonised ENG spectrum would facilitate in future spectrum
requirements for national events


Recommendations


We support Method C.


In case method D is adopted, it should b ensured that none of the
current land mobile bands be included in the listing of tuning
ranges

provides applications, frequency ranges, technical and
operational characteristics of short

range devices, as well as guidance on the
radiated power limits allowed by a number of administrations. The Report
highlights that SRDs are permitted to operate on a
noninterference

basis subject to relevant standards or national regulations. This Report also
underscores that “SRDs should not be restricted more than necessary in their use
and should be subject to recognised certification and verification procedures”.

Agenda item
1.22
: Short range devices


The deployment of SRDs is inclined to be ubiquitous, possibly in
large numbers, without individual licensing and implemented in
portable units.


SRDs play an important role in economic development, particularly
in promoting international trade and global security, where devices
such as RFID are critical to development of global trade and
industry. It is further
recognised

that many existing low
-
powered
SRD applications were already working without giving any harmful
interference to other services, it was not appropriate to put undue
constraint on those existing SRDs.


We believes that it is not be appropriate to place undue constraint
on the future development of SRDs, provided these future SRDs do
not claim protection from or cause harmful interference to existing
and future radiocommunication services.

: Short range devices


Recognizing that SRDs provide several economic benefits to trade
and are particularly beneficial to the economic growth,

To ensure that
existing and future radiocommunication services are protected from
harmful interference caused by some high powered SRD
applications, we support the development of a
WRC Resolution
inviting ITU
-
R to study the regional and global harmonization of
SRDs, and develop ITU
-
R Recommendations and Reports
accordingly (
Method B of the CPM Report).


We further support the APT common view agreed at the last APG
meeting that the studies by ITU
-
R WP
1
B in accordance with the
Resolution ITU
-
R
54
(“studies to achieve harmonization for short
-
range radiocommunication devices (SRDs)”) which resolves to study
and advise on a mechanism that may ease the use of relevant
frequency bands, preferably on a global or regional basis, suitable for
SRDs

: New MSS allocations

Agenda Item
1.25
:

Studies of possible bands for
new allocations to the mobile
-
satellite service
in the Earth
-
to
-
space and space
-
to
-
Earth directions, with particular focus
on the range
4
GHz to
16
GHz, taking into account sharing and
compatibility, without placing undue constraints on existing services in
this band, in accordance with Resolution
231
(WRC
-
07
)


Background & Issues


MSS Systems under this agenda item are intended to support the provision
of „broadband MSS‟ service to land, maritime and aeronautical users


Estimated spectrum requirements range from
2
x
240
MHz for the baseline
scenario to
2
x
335
MHz for high growth rate scenario


6
candidate frequency bands were identified (
4
DLs and
2
ULs)

Agenda item
1.25
: New MSS allocations


Recognize the extensive deployments by existing
services in most candidates bands


Require numerous and complex regulatory provisions to
protect existing services for
accommodating new MSS
allocations in the six candidate frequency bands.


We do not support either
5
GHz or
10
GHZ for MSS as
these
bnads

are used extensively


We therefore supports No Change to the Radio
Regulations, i.e. Methods A
1
and D

.

, to take appropriate action with
a view to enhancing the international regulatory framework;



Issues


Potential changes to the basic service definitions (like fixed or mobile service)


Some countries may propose to make fixed service only p
2
p, while mobile
service covers everything else (nomadic, p
-
mp
)


Potential creation of new service definitions


Associated impact to the existing allocations in the Radio
Regs


Expected Impact on the industry


Adding more flexibility to fixed or mobile service allocations is positive in bands
where only one type of allocation exists


E.g.,
5
GHz WAS/RLAN bands are only mobile allocations in the Radio Regulations while
the band is extensively used for fixed point to point applications


Excluding nomadic from fixed service allocations an issue for C
-
band

Agenda item
1.2
: .Recommendation


We support
the
view that proposes to keep the current practice (as
developed in Option
1
to Resolution
951

(Rev.WRC
-
07
)).


This Method also proposes no change under this agenda item to the
Radio Regulations.


We do not support any proposal to limit fixed service allocations


We support making the fixed service definition more clear to cover
nomadic or point to Multipoint services as proposed by some countries.
i.e. instead of between “specified fixed points” to “between a specified
foxed point and multiple points within a specified area” as below:


fixed service:

A

radiocommunication service

between
a
specified fixed
points

station and a
point
fixed

station at
a given location; the given location may be a specified
fixed point or any fixed point within a specified area
