  Propositions to fill a draft CPM text related to the WRC-11 A.I 1.22

A preliminary proposal for the CPM text related to the WRC-11 A.I. 1.22 (Resolution
953 (WRC-07)) is attached herewith. It is based on the proposed detailed structure of the
draft CPM Report to the WRC-11 (V2) which is available at:
                               AGENDA ITEM 1.22
                       (WP 1A / SG 3, SG 4, SG 5, SG 6, SG 7)

1.22     to examine the effect of emissions from short-range devices on
radiocommunication services, in accordance with Resolution 953 [COM6/4] (WRC-07);

Resolution 953 (WRC-07): Protection of radiocommunication services from emission by
short-range radio devices.
However, this Agenda Item should take into consideration results of the work of
Resolution 63 of WRC-2007 and Resolution 54 of the RA-2007: “Protection of
radiocommunication services against interference caused by radiation from industrial,
scientific and medical (ISM) equipments”

6/1.22/1 Executive summary
Resolution 953 (WRC-07) and Agenda Item 1.22 in addition to the work under
Resolution 63, invites ITU-R to study emissions from Short Range Devices (SRDs), in
particular Radio Frequency Identifications (RFIDs), inside and outside the frequency
bands designated for ISM applications under RR5.138 and RR5.150, whether if it is pure
ISM equipment or SRD with consideration of the definition of ISM under RR 1.15, to
ensure adequate protection of Radiocommunication services.

6/1.22/2 Background
SRD is not defined in Radio Regulations but defined in ITU-R Recommendation
SM.1538-2. ISM applications as defined under RR.1.15 exclude applications in the field
of telecommunications. It is this boundary between ISM and telecommunications (Refer
RR 1.3) which is not respected by SRD and they use the bands specified for ISM
applications and also other bands.
Noting also that SM.1538 gives many applications of SRD, majority of which are for
non-telecommunication purposes (alarms, keyless car entry, avalanche victim detectors,
etc) while some are for telecommunication purposes (like Ultra-Wide Band (UWB),
Telecommand, telemetry, voice, data, etc). SM.1538 also highlights that SRDs are
permitted to operate on secondary basis (not to cause harmful interference and not to
claim protection), subject to relevant standards or national regulations. However, it is
advisable if we put a limit on its radiation and specify the bands used, since they are
moving from one country to another, which requires addressing of this issue through
appropriate regulations.
Since SRD applications as given in SM.1538 can be categorized under ISM (e.g. alarms,
keyless car entry, avalanche victim detectors, etc) and some under the definitions of
Radio Services especially Fixed and Mobile Radio Service (e.g. RLAN), the challenge to
study the impact of their emission has been initiated.
6/1.22/3 Summary of technical and operational studies and relevant
         ITU-R Recommendations
   –   Recommendation ITU-R M.1808 “Technical and operational characteristics of
       conventional and trunked land mobile systems operating in the mobile service
       allocations below 960 MHz to be used in sharing studies”,
   –   Report ITU-R M.2116 “Characteristics of broadband wireless access systems
       operating in the land mobile service to be used in sharing studies”.

6/1.22/4 Analysis of the results of studies
Studies should follow the good example carried out by the TG1/8 of SG1 regarding:
“Compatibility between Ultra Wide Band Devices and radiocommunication services”
(technical characteristics, impact on other Radio Services, Regulatory implications and
measurement techniques for such devices).

6/1.22/5 Methods to satisfy the agenda item

[Text of the Method(s) to satisfy the agenda item]

6/1.22/6 Regulatory and procedural considerations
The following needs to be studied before the studies for the protection of Radio services
fro the SRDs:
   1. Are there any SRD using Radio frequencies other than the bands identified for
      ISM in RR? This should be evaluated in the studies conducted under Res 953 and
      Res 63.
   2. If the studies show that SRDs in the bands designated for ISM applications
      conform to the definition of ISM and SRD applications in bands other than
      designated for ISM applications fall under telecommunication purpose then they
      can be categorized as radio services and should be treated accordingly. However,
      in the Agenda Item common bands should be proposed to the next Radio
      Conference and/or allocations on Regional basis through a footnote.
   3. For the compatibility studies, Recommendations can be developed, as per the
      work carried out by TG1/8 (disbanded) for UWB, with emission masks for the
      SRDs in each prospective band which can ensure adequate protection for the
      existing Primary Radio services in those and adjacent bands from harmful
