WRC Wraps Up

9:55 AM -- The quadrennial World Radiocommunication Conference 2007 (WRC) wrapped up its four-week pow-wow on Friday in Geneva, where the world's regulators met to decide the fate of global spectrum availability. (See WRC Adopts Spectrum Treaty.)

The WRC adopted a treaty on future spectrum allocation for mobile broadband use. These new spectrum allocations include the 450-470 MHz band; the 698–862 MHz band in the Americas, China, and India; the 790-862 MHz band in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East; the 2.3–2.4 GHz band; and the 3.4–3.6 GHz band.
