WRC-15: Revisiting the Role of Satellites Worldwide

Date of Event:
March 11th, 2014

Run Time:
13:30 - 14:45

Room Number:
202

Track:
Commercial Satellite




World radiocommunication conferences (WRC) are held every three to four years. At this international gathering at the International Telecommunication Union in Geneva, Switzerland, terrestrial interests compete with satellite interests in an attempt to claim valuable spectrum. WRC-15 takes place in November 2015, but already planning meetings are underway and initial positions have been mapped. The first regional preparation meetings for WRC-15 predate SATELLITE 2014 by several months, so some clear lines of demand for the future of communications via satellite should be emerging. How will satellite fare at WRC-15? Are there opportunities for regional or even continental collaboration to improve the prospects for space-based services and requirements? What challenges will the terrestrial competitors pose to continued viability for the world’s satellite-enabled markets?
