WRC-15 decisions set new challenges and present new opportunities for the future of the telecommunication sector in general and radiocommunications in particular. These decisions were agreed upon with the aim of maintaining a stable, predictable and universally applicable regulatory environment that ensures long-term investments for the multi-trillion dollar ICT industry. The spectrum/orbit resource remains a crucial asset for satellite operators and administrations. Gaining access to this asset is particularly intense for newcomers to the business, for smaller companies operating existing satellite services, for new national/regional systems, and for anyone seeking to introduce new types of satellite application ̶ broadband and mobile applications in particular, but also scientific applications related to the environment, meteorology and climatology, and disaster prediction, mitigation and relief.
Following the success of last year's workshop in Danang (Vietnam) and in an ongoing effort to explore innovative ideas and bring new perspective to the satellite community, ITU is organizing the
ITU Workshop on the Efficient Use of the Spectrum/Orbit Resource on 6 September
2016 inBali, Indonesia, at the kind invitation of the Ministry of Communication and Informatics (MCIT), Indonesia, with the support of Asosiasi Satelit Indonesia (ASSI).
The workshop will focus on a variety of topics, such as the implementation of WRC-15 decisions, the impact of new technologies and future trends in satellite communications, latest developments in non-GSO constellations and their evolution..
The workshop will also provide a unique opportunity to meet and exchange views with the world´s leading experts from administrations, satellite operators and industry, who will share the latest information on their plans for the development of satellite networks and discuss possible future proposals for enhancing access to and the efficient and effective use of the spectrum/orbit resource (protection/extension of existing satellite frequency allocations, rights and obligations regarding application of the international regulatory framework).
The workshop will be followed by the ITU International Satellite Symposium 2016, at the same ven
Registration for both events is free of charge. Participants are required to pre‐register online HERE
