Asia-Pacific Spectrum Management Conference 2021


Taking place across 24, 25 & 27 May, the Asia Pacific Spectrum Management Conference will provide an online platform for stakeholders to come together and discuss topical issues relating to the management and coordination of spectrum policy across the region.

During the 3 days, attendees will have the opportunity to get involved and engage through interactive sessions, one-to-one and group networking, technology demonstrations, visit the Nokia booth and much more. 

The key themes for this year’s events are:

  • Focus on key frequencies – 6GHz, mmWave, UHF and C-band
  • Delivering the spectrum to power the continual evolution of 5G
  • WRC-23 – an update on preparations from across the regions
  • Meeting the connectivity needs of vertical users – licensing and access models
  • Rural connectivity – emerging technologies and solutions to tackle the digital divide 
  • Spectrum sharing – new models and approaches to increase spectrum efficiency

Nokia Sessions:

Tuesday, 25 May: 1:40 pm – 1:50 pm (Bangkok Time)
Session 4i: Finding the right balance – meeting the needs of all users across the 3.3 – 5GHz frequency ranges

The arguments surrounding the future use of the 3.3-4.2GHz C-band are of course well known – it is seen as vital spectrum by both satellite and IMT users. Across the APAC region and elsewhere, regulators are working to release bandwidth for 5G, whilst also putting measures in place to safeguard satellite services in the band and protect them from interference. This session will provide an update on the current status within the band, before looking at slightly higher frequencies, and examining the potential that the 4.4-5GHz band can also play in delivering connectivity for 5G services. Where does the balance lie in meeting the needs for all the key users in these essential mid-band frequencies?
