International Satellite Communication Symposium
Following the success of the first ITU International Workshop on Preventing Harmful Interference to Satellite Systems held in Geneva in June 2013, and reflecting international cooperation to facilitate expanded access to satellite connectivity, the Radiocommunication Bureau has announced the organisation of a two-day symposium in Geneva on 13-14 June 2016. At this symposium, experts from the industry, satellite operators and regulators from all around the world will provide an overview of ongoing progress on regulations and measures that have been developed and implemented to prevent interference.
The meeting will provide participants with presentations on the latest developments and innovations in the combat against satellite interference, and will allow them to interact with experts, sharing experiences and discussing the effectiveness of existing and promising measures in this field. Some of the topics that will be addressed are: cybersecurity, latest technologies to detect, identify, locate and mitigate harmful interference, ensuring content delivery by broadcasting-satellite services, and ITU regulations and actions to prevent and resolve harmful interference.
