Spectrum Under Pressure

Connecting billions of devices in a converged communications world - balancing spectrum availability, efficiency and competition objectives.

  • How is spectrum usage adapting as user demand patterns evolve?
  • What spectrum is needed for which situations? Role of licensed / unlicensed, small cell,  white spaces / cognitive radio
  • How will the spectrum ecosystem evolve to accommodate conflicting connectivity requirements of the future?
  • Developing a vision of convergence between a broadcasting platform and a broadband platform
  • WRC planning for 2015 - what will the big hits be? There is an imperative for WRC-15 to identify the IMT-Advanced bands; will the regional band plan coordination be much better than the LTE experience?

In the Chair

  • Dr Robert Pepper, Vice President, Global Technology Policy, Cisco Systems


  • Ulrich Rehfuess, Head of Spectrum Policy and Regulation, Nokia Solutions and Networks
  • Herman Schepers, Head of Regional Strategy and Government Affairs, GSM Association
