World Radiocommunication Conference 2012 to focus on spectrum
The ITU has announced that the World Radiocommunication Conference will be staged in Geneva from 23 January - 17 February 2012.
The event is held every three to four years, and is expected to attract over 3000 delegates next year.
The organisation says the outcome of this international treaty-making conference will have worldwide ramifications in the field of communications.
The 2012 World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-12) will focus on the international regulatory framework for radiocommunications to reflect increasing convergence; management of scarce radio-frequency spectrum to provide new opportunities for radiocommunication services; management of satellite orbital slots and associated spectrum resources and the introduction of mobile broadband and other advanced technologies, the use of digital dividend resulting from the switch over to digital TV and the development of Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV).
