Agenda Item Description
Agenda 1.4 This wide ranging Agenda Item relates to the further development of IMT-2000 and systems beyond IMT-2000, in particular: i) studies of the requirements for spectrum and potential frequency ranges ii) consideration of spectrum at frequencies below those identified in 5.317A (806 - 960 MHz) iii) that the studies in i) above should take account of benefit to developing countries of the satellite component of IMT-2000; iv) that sharing and compatibility studies should be performed where necessary when considering additional frequency bands for IMT-2000
Resolution 25 This resolution relates to the Global Mobile Personal Communications by Satellite (GMPCS) Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). It requests administrations to continue to support the implementation of this MoU, and to participate in any ITU-R studies required in the development and revision of relevant Recommendations.
Resolution 221 This resolution covers operation of high altitude platform stations (HAPS) providing IMT-2000 services in bands around 2 GHz. It identifies pfd limits that HAPS stations must meet to protect terrestrial services, plus some gain patterns and out-of-band pfd masks. It invites study within the ITU-R of guidance to facilitate consultation with neighbouring administrations.
Resolution 225 This resolution relates to use of certain frequency bands between 1 525 MHz and 2 690 MHz allocated to the MSS for use by the satellite component of IMT-2000. It calls for sharing studies relating to use of these bands for satellite IMT-2000 and use of the spectrum by other services, such as terrestrial IMT-2000 (in particular around 2 500 - 2 690 MHz) and the radiodetermination-satellite service.
Resolution 525 This resolution relates to the introduction of broadcast satellite service (sound) systems and complementary terrestrial broadcasting in bands between 1 and 3 GHz. It calls upon studies of the calculation method and interference criteria for sharing between satellite and terrestrial broadcasting stations, and with other effected services.
Resolution 646 [COM5/4] This resolution relates to protection and disaster relief. It notes many of the factors relating to the requirements and issues relating to provision of such safety of life services. It calls for studies into: i) technical and operational implementation of advanced solutions to the needs of protection and disaster relief; ii) further technical studies in support of possible additional identification of other frequency bands to meet the needs of certain countries in Region 1.
Resolution 951 [COM7/2] This resolution is related to the issue of terrestrial wireless interactive multimedia (TWIM) systems, that could operate across traditional service boundaries, using a range of emerging technologies. It calls for studies to examine the effectiveness, appropriateness, and impact of the Radio Regulations with respect to these new systems. The results of these studies are to be included in the Director of the BR's Report to WRC-07 to allow consideration of this subject on a future conference agenda. See also WRC-03 Recommendation 722 [COM7/2]
Resolution 223 Additional frequency bands for IMT-2000 including: i) sharing of IMT-2000 with other applications and services in the bands 1710 - 1885 MHz and 2500 - 2690 MHz; ii) harmonised frequency arrangements to achieve compatibility with arrangements used for 1G and 2G systems; iii) study future enhancements to IMT-2000 eg for IP services; iv) guidance to meet the needs of developing countries and rural areas
Resolution 224 Study suitable frequency bands for the terrestrial component of IMT-2000 that operates in frequency bands under 1 GHz
