​The World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-19), taking place in Egypt from 28 October to 22 November 2019, will decide on the regulatory framework for non-GSO FSS satellite systems that may operate in the 37.5-39.5 GHz (space-to-Earth), 39.5-42.5 GHz (space to Earth), 47.2-50.2 GHz (Earth-to-space) and 50.4-51.4 GHz (Earth-to-space) frequency bands, as well as the requirements for the bringing into use frequency assignments to non-GSO systems, including possible adoption of a milestone-based approach for the deployment of these systems in specific frequency bands and services.​
