International Telecommunication Union (ITU) World Radiocommunication Conferences (WRCs) are held approximately every four years to review and revise the international Radio Regulations (RR). Last year WRC-19 was held from 28th Oct to 22nd Nov 2019 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt with more than 3400 Delegates from the 196 ITU member states.

This talk gives a summary of the outcome of the main Agenda Items of interest to Australian mobile industry including global and regional identification of mmWave bands for the deployment of 5G networks, while also adopting measures to ensure appropriate protection of the existing services.

This event is jointly organised by: IEEE VIC ComSoc, EA ITEE, and IET Victoria. We gratefully acknowledge RMIT in providing the venue.

Attendance is free for all TelSoc members and members of affiliated organisations that are part of the Engineers Australia ITEE Telecommunications Engineering Community of Practice (Engineers Australia, TelSoc, IEEE, IET). We request that TelSoc members register for the event via the registration button "Book A Seat" shown above (please ensure you are logged in on the website first). Others can register via Eventbriete: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/telsoc-lunchtime-lecture-insights-into-wrc-19-tickets-97804954251.

We encourage those attendees who are not members of TelSoc to consider joining. The modest annual membership fee contribution is needed to ensure that TelSoc is able to achieve its mission and progress the cause of telecommunications within the nation.
