2 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World international regulations global standards & guidelines assistance to administrations Rights of access to the spectrum Efficient use of spectrum Operation free from interference Economies of scale Interoperability and roaming Global harmonization Guidelines for national & regional regulations G OOD QUALITY AND LESS COSTLY EQUIPMENT M ORE FAVORABLE INVESTMENT ENVIRONMENT ( CLEAR & STABLE ) 2

3 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World Radio Regulations Intergovernmental treaty covering both legal, operational and technical provisions, serves as a supranational instrument for the optimal international management of the radio spectrum Defines rights and obligations of ITU Member States to access spectrum Updated every WRC (3 to 4 years) 3

4 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World Participants:3000+ Countries:160+ Companies:100+ Proposals:

5 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World Human and institutional capacity building Development of a broadband infrastructure and achievement of regional interconnectivity and universal access Introduction of new digital broadcasting technologies 5

6 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World Support and assist membership, in particular developing countries (objective 5 of the ITU-R sector). to assist developing countries and BDT on topics of mutual interest to ITU-R and ITU-D, such as IMT, digital broadcasting and spectrum management techniques. participation of ITU-R and/or BR experts in workshops/seminars organized by BDT. to organize world and regional seminars, workshops and information meetings dealing with Radiocommunication issues as well as radio conference preparatory matters. 6

7 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World Mobile broadband/IMT spectrum The three good news from WRC-12: MHz (800 MHz): sharing problems resolved 698–806 MHz (700 MHz): allocation to mobile service globally available from 2015 Additional spectrum: to be considered by WRC-15 7

8 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World ITU-R Studies for WRC-15 on IMT Agenda items for WRC-15 (Resolution 807 (WRC-12)): 1.1 to consider additional spectrum allocations to the mobile service on a primary basis and identification of additional frequency bands for International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) and related regulatory provisions, to facilitate the development of terrestrial mobile broadband applications, in accordance with Resolution 233 (WRC ‑ 12); 1.2to examine the results of ITU ‑ R studies, in accordance with Resolution 232 (WRC ‑ 12), on the use of the frequency band MHz by the mobile, except aeronautical mobile, service in Region 1 and take the appropriate measures; Spectrum requirements for the mobile service including suitable frequency ranges, and other specific requirements (WP 5D) Spectrum sharing and compatibility with other services including consolidation of draft CPM text (JTG ) 8

9 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World Standards LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced technologies were each determined to have successfully met all of the criteria established by ITU-R for the first release of IMT-Advanced. 9

11 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World Workshop and frequency coordination meetings on transition to digital television and digital dividend in Bamako, Mali, March 2012 and Kampala, Uganda, April 2012 following the ATU Digital Migration and Spectrum Policy Summit that took place in Nairobi, Kenya from 29 November to 1 December Objectives:  to promote the cooperation and exchange of experience within the African countries on spectrum issues relating to the transition to digital terrestrial television and the digital dividend;  to coordinate sub regional Roadmaps and initiate frequency coordination, with a view to facilitating harmonization and use of the digital dividend spectrum. Recommendations:  to give urgently consideration to the possibility of harmonizing the digital TV transmission and definition standard, at subregional or regional level;  to complete questionnaire issued by the ITU-D in response to Question 11-3/2 on this issue: (http://www.itu.int/ITU-D/CDS/gq/generic/questionnaire.asp?ProjectID=201).http://www.itu.int/ITU-D/CDS/gq/generic/questionnaire.asp?ProjectID=201 11

12 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World to adopt the following timeline in order to meet the deadline specified by the GE-06 Agreement for the cease of analogue transmissions:  September 2012: ATU Summit in Abuja on the transition to digital TV and harmonization of the digital dividend.  September 2012: end of informal frequency coordination discussions and start of formal activities for the modifications of GE-06 Plan.  December 2012: adoption of a common digital TV standard at sub-regional or regional level in Africa.  June 2013: Finalization of the establishment of national legislative and regulatory frameworks for the transition to digital TV and the allocation of the digital dividend.  June 2013: End of frequency planning activities (national and international) for the deployment of digital TV and analog switchoff  September 2013: Start of deployment of digital TV  June 2014 : start of analog switchoff in the UHF band  17 June 2015 : end of analog switchoff in the UHF band 12

13 Kigali, May 9, 2012 Committed to Connecting the World The SMS4DC (Spectrum Management System for Developing Countries) provides assistance on technical and regulatory procedures for managing spectrum allocated to the Land Mobile, Fixed and Broadcasting services, in full compliance with the relevant ITU recommendations. 13
