    Egypt Partakes in SG4 WPs Meetings

    Date published: 10 October 2017
    Egypt, represented by the National Telecom Regulatory Authority, will partake in the Study Group 4 (SG4) Working Parties meetings, organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R), on October 10-27, at ITU headquarters, in Geneva, Switzerland.

    SG4 (Satellite Services) is responsible for systems and networks for the fixed-satellite service, mobile-satellite service, broadcasting-satellite service and radiodetermination-satellite service. It consists of three Working Parties (WP): WP 4A, WP 4B and WP 4C.

    The meeting of Working Party 4C (WP 4C)— responsible for efficient orbit/spectrum utilization for the mobile-satellite service (MSS) and the radiodetermination-satellite service (RDSS)— will be held on October 10-17, while the meeting of Working Party 4B (WP 4B)— responsible for systems, air interfaces, performance and availability objectives for the fixed-satellite service (FSS), broadcasting-satellite service (BSS) and mobile-satellite service (MSS), including IP-based applications and satellite news gathering (SNG)— will be held on October 16-20. The meeting of the Working Party 4A (WP 4A)— responsible for efficient orbit/spectrum utilization for the fixed-satellite service (FSS) and broadcasting-satellite service (BSS)— will be on October 17-27.

    NTRA has participated in the preparation of several technical studies within the framework of SG4, and represented both the Arab and African groups during the past years, which led to many achievements in the field of space services.

    Egypt is one of the oldest members in the ITU and has 16 sector members from the private sector in the union. It is also a founding member of the “Partners to Connect the World” initiative and it chairs the ITU Council Working Group on International Telecommunications Regulations (ITRs). Egypt is an active participant in the ITU Telecommunication Development Sector (ITU-D) activities and it has succeeded in establishing the first regional subgroup in SG2. This, in turn, further enhances the regional presence of ITU and increases its involvement with developing countries in Africa and the Arab World.

    Based in Geneva, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the leading United Nations agency for information and communication technologies with 191 member-states and more than 700 sector members and associates. ITU role is to enable the global growth and sustained development of ICT. In addition, ITU organizes international telecom events like WSIS and Telecom Africa.
