ITU identifies new bands for 5G, procedures for LEO satellite operators

Friday 22 November 2019 | 17:19 CET | News
About 3,400 delegates from 165 member states have signed the International Telecommunication Union's Radio Regulations' Final Acts, the international treaty governing the global use of radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbits. The signatures were given during the ITU World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-19) at Egypt's Sharm el-Sheikh , now concluded. The biggest takeaway from the conference was the identification of more frequency bands for 5G and the establishment of regulatory procedures for mega constellations of low earth orbit (LEO) satellites.
