  • In a time where the literature usually focuses on US national spectrum policy while overlooking the implications of decisions at the international level, this panel addresses the potential implications of the forthcoming WRC-19 to be held in November 2019 with a focus on specific agenda items of critical importance. This includes WRC-19 Agenda Items (AI) 1.13, which will decide on the potential spectrum bands for 5G, AI 1.16 to consider issues related to Radio Local Area Networks (RLAN) in the 5 GHz, and future agenda items for WRC-23 (e.g. Mobile allocation in the UHF).
  • The panel tends also to examine whether the ITU-R has become less relevant for the US considering that the latter is planning 5G in the 28 GHz (among others), which is not one of the potential 5G bands in WRC-19. Another issue to be addressed is the criticismof the US to the ITU (the US is the largest contributor to the organization) and whether the US has become less powerful within WRCs.
