Workshop on Next steps for WRC-19

World Radiocommunication Conferences (WRC) are organized by the ITU every three to four years to review and revise the Radio Regulations, the international legal treaty governing the global use of the frequency spectrum and the geostationary-satellite and non-geostationary-satellite orbits.

World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 (WRC-19) will take place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, from 28 October to 22 November 2019. The Government of Egypt, which will host the conference, has confirmed that the Conference will be held at the Sharm El Sheikh International Congress Center (SHICC). A Radiocommunication Assembly (RA-19) will also be held at the same location immediately preceding the WRC-19 from 21 to 25 October 2019.

Over 4000 delegates including Ministers, Ambassadors, Chairmen, Members, senior regulators and senior wireless industry executives (CEO/CTO) are expected to take part in this Mecca for wireless Industry.

The success of any WRC depends on the critical inputs submitted by the six regional groups namely the APT, CEPT, CITEL, RCC, ASMG and the ATU as the coordinated Regional Common proposals.

The 5th Meeting of the APT Conference Preparatory Group for WRC-19 (APG19-5) was held from 31 July to 6 August 2019 in Tokyo, Japan. At this meeting, common proposals on behalf of 38 administrations of Asia and Pacific region were finalized for most of the key WRC-19 Agenda Items. This meeting was attended by 529 delegates including 425 delegates representing 26 Asia pacific countries’ administrations. It is time now for these administrations to decide and vote on the Preliminary Asia Pacific Common Proposals (PACPs) so that these become Asia Pacific Common Proposals (ACPs) and get submitted to WRC-19.

In line with other APT member countries, Department of Telecom (WPC Wing) will also need to decide on which of these PACPs to support. In order to help in this process and to understand the intricate details of these proposals, ITU-APT foundation of India is organizing one day workshop on 23rd August, 2019 at The Taj Mahal Hotel, Man Singh Road, New Delhi.

The workshop will also review the outcome of recent ITU-R WP5D meeting in Brazil, where India tabled its own home grown 5G technologies for the first time in the history of Indian telecom.
