Every new spectrum identification has challenges. Sometimesthey are technical, sometimes they are economic.
The Fraunhofer IIS conducted an analysis to assess how
proposed unwanted emission limits to protect EESScould be met, considering 5G/IMT 3GPP sys


Satellite delivers broadband using the 28/18 GHz band worldwide.


Standard C-band downlink frequencies, 3.7-4.2 GHz, are globally identified and used today, with the extended C-band 3.4-3.7 GHz, to deliver a wide range of critical satellite services, which in many cases cannot be reliably provided by other means.

Compilation of the key AIs for WRC19

Punto de la Agenda 9.1: Cuestión 9.1.9 - GSC Abril (Spanish)

Llama al estudio sobre los requerimientos de espectro y la posible atribución de la banda de frecuencia 51.4-52.4 GHz al servicio fijo por satélite (SFS) (Tierra-espacio).

Punto de la Agenda 1.13 (26GHz) - GSC Abril (Spanish)

El punto de la Agenda 1.13 considera la posibilidad de identificar una cantidad de espectro sin precedentes para las IMT; un total de 33 GHz entre 24.25 GHz y 86 GHz.

Punto de la Agenda 1.13 (40/50 GHz) - GSC Abril (Spanish)

El punto de la agenda 1.13 de WRC-19 llama a realizar estudios de compartición y compatibilidad para una posible identificación a IMT de más de 33 GHz de espectro entre 24 y 86 GHz.

Punto de la Agenda 1.5 - GSC Abril (Spanish)

Considera el uso de las bandas de frecuencia 17.7-19.7 GHz (espacio-Tierra) y 27.5-29.5 GHz (Tierra-espacio) por las estaciones terrenas en movimiento (ESIM) que se comunican con estaciones espaciales de satélites del SFS en órbita geoestacionaria

AI 1.5 - GSC April (English)

Considers the use of the frequency bands 17.7-19.7 GHz (space-to-Earth) and 27.5-29.5 GHz (Earth-to-space) by earth stations in motion (ESIMs) communicating with geostationary satellite orbit (GSO) FSS space stations.

Internet of Things (IoT) and the Role of Satellites

No single communications technology can reach all the possible markets and users, and be able to handle the flood of connections required and mounds of data that will be transmitted and received for future IOT applications.
