ITU World Radiocommunication Conference 2023 (WRC-23)
At the 2023 World Radiocommunication Conference in Dubai, UAE (WRC-23), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will address several Agenda Items that will have a direct impact not only on SES’s ITU satellite filings and day-to-day operations as well as on its spectrum allocations and global satellite service deployments at large.
World Radiocommunication Conferences are held every three to four years to review, and, if necessary, revise the Radio Regulations. The Radio Regulations are essentially an international treaty that defines how spectrum is to be operated by all users sharing the scarce resource that is spectrum, as well as the use of satellite orbits. During a four-week conference, some three to four thousand delegates representing 193 Member states and more than 200 private companies debate and decide how to update these international regulations.
