What: ITU World Radiocommunication Conference 2007 (WRC-07)
When: 22 October − 16 November 2007
Where: International Conference Centre of Geneva (CICG), 17 rue de Varembé, CH-1211 Geneva, Switzerland
Why: WRC-07 will revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbits and deal with any radiocommunication question of a worldwide character related with its agenda. The agenda contains about 30 items related to almost all terrestrial and space radio services and applications. It comprises mobile communications, including 3G and future generations, aeronautical telemetry and telecommand systems, satellite services, including meteorological applications, maritime distress and safety signals, digital broadcasting, and the use of radio in the prediction and detection of natural disasters.
Decisions on the most rational and efficient ways to exploit the limited resource of radio-frequency spectrum and manage satellite orbits will be critical and increasingly valuable for the achievement of the global connectivity goals in the 21st Century.
Who: Government and industry representatives, observers from international organizations.
