Introduction

This course is a Third part of the program “Spectrum Management” that the ITU Centre of Excellence for the Central and Eastern Europe will offer to the Sub-region from 2005 through to 2007. The course is intended for high level managers and experts in the telecommunications area.

The main goals of the course is to provide to the trainees a knowledge on the International spectrum management, on the international spectrum management organizations, on the functions of the international spectrum management, on the ITU-BR methods and procedure, on the international frequencies allocations, allotments and assignments, on the international assignment of frequencies, on the international frequency coordination, on the international radio communication databases and tools for using them, on the notification of terrestrial radio communication networks, on the coordination of terrestrial radio communication networks, on the notification of satellite radio communication networks, on the coordination of satellite radio communication networks and on the international publications for the radio communications.

The course content is adapted to the knowledge level of the man part of participants.

Upon completion of this course students are able:

To recognize of necessity of International Spectrum Management.

To recognize the functions and structure of the International Spectrum Management organizations.

To understand the difference between international frequencies allocations, allotments and assignments.

 To familiarize with the international frequency notification and coordination.

To recognize the notification of terrestrial radio communication networks.

To understand the procedures for notification of terrestrial and satellite radio communication networks.

To recognize the conditions for protection of the terrestrial and satellite radio communication networks.

To understand the recording of the frequency assignments in the Master International Frequency Register (MIFR).

To familiarize with automated international notification to ITU-BR and checking the assignment records in the MIFR.

To understand the indispensability of coordination for terrestrial and satellite  networks.

To understand the examination of terrestrial and satellite communication networks.

 To familiarize with the international Publications for the Radio Communication networks
