The course is designed for individuals with a working knowledge of wireless systems and who desire to excel in the areas of satellite regulations and frequency coordination, ITU regulations, satellite and 5G use cases, and technical and regulatory challenges.

The course will start with a quick overview of Satellite Communications, Frequency Bands, LEO, MEO and GEO satellites, followed by typical examples of satellite use cases for 5G and technical and regulatory challenges that need to be resolved before satellites can be used for 5G. Participants will also be introduced to ITU regulations and advanced topics such as interference, frequency allocation, and Service Integration and Management (SIAM). with a quick overview of Satellite Communications, Frequency Bands, LEO, MEO and GEO satellites, followed by typical examples of satellite use cases for 5G and technical and regulatory challenges that need to be resolved before satellites can be used for 5G.
