What’s going on with spectrum sharing in Asia? Already there have been several exciting examples across the region to discuss, including China’s decision this year to license the 3.3 GHz band on a shared basis. Our speakers will look at whether the region will take its own distinct path.

Included in the debate will be the future of the 6 GHz band. After all, if the decision is for an unlicensed band, rather than licensed IMT, then that is a form of sharing. South Korea recently opted for unlicensed 6 GHz, a boost for Wi-Fi’s supporters. Meanwhile the C-band is an example from Asia where coexistence between satellite and IMT has not been possible. Might sharing offer a solution in the future? What is the satellite industry’s view?

The speakers are:

  • Je Myung Ryu is a senior digital development specialist at the World Bank (former DG of Radio Policy Bureau at the Korean Ministry of Science and ICT).
  • U.K. Srivastava is the principal advisor, network spectrum and licensing with TRAI, India’s telecoms regulator.
  • Tare Brisibe, Global Spectrum & Regulatory Policy (ESOA).
  • Martin Sims, Managing Director, PolicyTracker

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, 19 August at 4pm AEST,  11.30 am IST, 2 pm Singapore, 8 am CEST, 11 pm PDT
