Wireless access including RLANs &
ad-hoc Networking (ISACC)
• Presentations
   – Contributions GSC13-GRSC6-08, -15 (-14, -18 for information)
• Summary
   – There are many challenges in this area
      • Interference
      • Need to maintain and synchronize standards ensuring national and
        regional standards do not conflict
      • Need to standardize ad-hoc networks
      • Title of HIS should be narrowed to provide clarification
• Resolution
   – A drafting group was charged with reviewing the Resolution regarding
     Broadband Services in Rural and Remote Areas starting with the
     baseline text contained in GSC13-GRSC6-10. Following review, the
     revisions were approved for submission to the closing plenary.

• Summary
   – Collaboration with this HIS is moving away from the physical layer
     and is moving up to the level of interaction of applications and content
   – This HIS is very important to GSC

     was reviewed, reaffirmed without changes and will be submitted to
     the closing plenary.

• Summary
   – ETSI reported the key challenge is that the work in the aeronautical
     sector requires significant co-operation efforts inside and outside of
   – In the USA, this area is being addressed by ARINC and the FCC and
     does not require additional involvement
   – Consideration could be given to passenger-to-ground
• Resolution
   – No resolution exists for this HIS; GRSC recommends eliminating this
     as an HIS

GRSC Discussion and Output on
IMT issues
• At the 13th Global Standard Collaboration meeting in Boston, July 14-17,
  2008, the Participating Standards Organizations (PSO) discussed the
  development of IMT within ITU-R Study Group 5 in Circular Letter
  5/LCCE/3 for contributions to the next Study Group 5 Working Party
  Structure. The PSOs understand that SG5 includes the work of all
  aspects of IMT (IMT-2000 maintenance, IMT-Advanced evolution and
  documentation, spectrum sharing studies, etc.). The group also
  understands the significant role the ITU has played in the success of the
  3rd generation mobile radio networks being defined under ITU-R
  Resolution 57 (RA-07). Realizing that Study Group 5 has eliminated all
  overlapping work between IMT and other dissimilar radio systems, the
  PSOs agreed:
   – That a dedicated working structure for IMT (currently WP5D) is
      desirable to continue its work with speed and expertise
   – To encourage to recommend to their members to respond to
      5/LCCE/3, the circular letter of ITU

Task Force Reports (1)
• Presentations
  – Contributions GSC13-GRSC6-02, GSC13-PLEN-64r1
• Summary of IMT Task Force
  – The PSOs have met during the 2nd meeting of ITU-R WP 5D in Dubai
    and exchanged emails
  – The Task Force proposes that GSC endorses the continuation of the
    IMT Task Force to exchange information and views on candidate
    radio interface technologies for IMT-Advanced
  – The Task Force also proposes that GSC requests its PSOs to review
    their national/regional activities and to report on their progress at the
    next GSC meeting

Task Force Reports (2)
•   Summary of Radio Microphone Task Force
    – The PSOs have met via phone and exchanged emails
    – Many changes in standardization have been made by ETSI
    – All Task Force members contacted have expressed concern with the
      changes from analogue to digital television and the effects on the
      current sharing of this spectrum by radio microphones
    – There is interest in learning more about ATIS’ work related to
      Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC)
•   GRSC-6 recommends maintaining both Task Forces

World Radiocommunication
Conference (WRC) Update
• Presentations
   – Contributions GSC13-GRSC6-11, -12
• Summary
   – Some objectives of RA-07 include: reviewing methods and procedures
     related to ITU-R Study Groups, establishing SG work programme and
     structure, approval of ITU-R Recommendations on IMT-2000
   – Five (5) new or revised ITU-R Resolutions were highlighted as of particular
     interest to GSC
   – Key statistics relating WRC-07 were reviewed as well as results and
   – Expected timetable in preparation for WRC-11 is as follows:
       •   November 2007: Agenda for WRC-11 adopted in Resolution 805 (WRC-07)
       •   November 2007: Preparatory studies started by CPM11-1

       •   Fourth quarter of 2011: WRC-11

• Output Resolutions
   – GSC-12/09, /14, /15, /16 were reaffirmed without discussion since
     they were related to Information Sharing Subjects (ISS)
   – GSC12/13 (MMBM) was discussed and reaffirmed without changes
   – As a result of revising the proposed Resolution in GSC13-PLEN-05,
     GSC12/08 (PPDR) has been withdrawn
   – Resolution GSC12/10 was reviewed, revised and approved by
     GRSC-6 as the Resolution to be submitted to the closing plenary for
     GSC approval. In its consideration to establish general coordination
     mechanisms within the ITS Task Force, the GRSC agreed that
     implementation of such recommendations would be needed prior to
     the next GSC in view of the high level of ITS standardization activities
   – Resolution GSC12/12 was reviewed, revised and approved as the
