CITC to Host a Webinar on Radio Spectrum Innovation in Collaboration with the ITU
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 25 - 11 - 2020

The Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) will host a webinar, titled "Radio Spectrum for International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT)-2020 and beyond: Fostering Commercial and Innovative Use", in coordination with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
The webinar will discuss the potential for radio spectrum and 5G to transform the world into a digital society, through enabling different industries and proactively anticipating future needs.
The growing opportunities for wideband spectrum access, coupled with ongoing technological advancement, mean that 5G promises to serve as a unified platform for a new era in digital transformation. The ITU encourages national spectrum policy makers to take a holistic view, if emerging wireless technologies are to be adopted across many different sectors.
As a fourth-generation digital regulator, CITC is in charge of managing Saudi Arabia's national spectrum. The Commission has set out its National Spectrum Strategy (NSS), which aims to improve the commercial and innovative use of the nation's radio spectrum by 2025. Saudi Arabia is the first country in the MENA region to implement a national spectrum strategy. The Kingdom also ranked second among G20 countries for spectrum allocation in 2019, and it is this drive that places Saudi Arabia among the most significant countries worldwide for emerging radio technologies.
Speakers at the webinar are wireless experts from different industries including satellite, mobile, IoT, WiFi and other wireless technologies, as well as speakers from governmental and regulatory bodies across the world.
The sessions will cover issues such as "Spectrum usage and property rights: privatization and trading of the resource" and "Developing a sustainable national spectrum strategy: Meeting the demand of all sectors and radio services" and much more. The webinar will take place over three days from December 8th to 10th, starting at 14.30 (GMT+3) each day.
