 A variety of spectrum-related matters dealing with the future development of radiocommunications, enabling convergence and coordination of all radio services, were addressed by the second session of the Conference Preparatory Meeting (CPM15-2) for the World Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC-15), which will be held in Geneva, 2-27 November 2015.

CPM15-2, which met for almost two weeks, concluded with the adoption of the Report to WRC-15, focusing on technical, operational and regulatory materials to be considered by ITU Member States in developing their proposals to the Conference.

More than 1250 participants from 105 ITU Member States attended the meeting.

World Radiocommunication Conferences are mandated to review and revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbit resources. WRC-15 decisions will ensure that these resources will be used in best possible way and in the best interest of all end users, with global implications for both policy-makers and the industry.

CPM15-2 reached consensus on the way to address many of the topics on the WRC-15 Agenda, for instance, with the implementation of wireless avionics intra-communications, the use of digital technologies for a more efficient usage of existing frequencies for on-board communications and critical functions of ships in restricted waters or the sustainable availability of the 5 GHz band for feeder-links to non-geostationary orbital (GSO) systems in the mobile-satellite service.
