Spectrum Threats Post WRC-15: Peace, Security and Spectrum for all?
Many in the industry were concerned that the WRC-15 Conference would be a watershed, by which the security of all satellite spectrum would be at risk. But this was not the case, the satellite industry succeeded in rallying the international community to recognize and re-affirm the role of satellite and the need for security of its spectrum. How did this play out? With current and future terrestrial spectrum needs accounted for, and satellite telecoms spectrum secure at least to WRC-2023, are we entering into a golden age of synergy between terrestrial and satellite? Or are there still dangers ahead?
