WRC 07 agenda item 1.4 | Ofcom

There are several bands that could be committed for IMT (International Mobile Telecommunications) use and these are being discussed at the World Radio Communication Conference 2007.

410 to 430 MHz Bands which are attractive for the coverage extension of current IMT-2000 systems
450 to 470 MHz
470 to 862 MHz Coverage extension and possibly providing capacity requirements
2300 to 2400 MHz Bands which are attractive for providing the capacity requirements for IMT-Advanced
2700 to 2900 MHz
3400 to 3600 MHz
3600 to 3800 MHz
3800 to 4200 MHz
4400 to 4990 MHz

Ofcom is proposing that

* to support efforts to keep the IMT-Advanced family as open and flexible as possible;

* to support a non-binding identification of spectrum for IMT but keep this as generic as possible (i.e. for IMT rather than IMT-Advanced);

* to support changing existing identifications from IMT-2000 to IMT to foster greater flexibility in their use;

* to support the development of a European Common Proposal for a primary mobile service allocation in the band 470 to 862 MHz at WRC 07 and a Resolution for ITU R to study the band for an identification for IMT at WRC 11;

* to support the development of a European Common Proposal for a co-primary allocation to the mobile service and identification for IMT in the bands 3400 to 3600 MHz and 3600 to 3800 MHz;

* to oppose any change to the allocations or a IMT identification in the band 2700 to 2900 MHz at WRC-07; and

* to adopt a neutral approach to the remaining candidate bands.

Ofcom are expecting response to be in within 5 weeks to be in time for CEPT meetings of the Electronic Communications Committee Project Team 1 (ECC PT1) and the Conference Preparatory Group (CPG) in April, where Ofcom expect ECP’s to be finalised.
