450MHz Alliance held its Autumn/Winter general assembly on the 16th of October in Hong Kong. The event was in conjunction with Qualcomm’s 4G/5G Summit, 16-18 October, at Kerry Hotel in Kowloon. Many Alliance members and guests attended the meeting. Traditionally, the first block was dedicated to operators who shared their progress in development 450 MHz-based networks. The spectrum of applications ranged from mobile broadband to utilities, PPDR, transportation and business critical applications in general.
Our Standards & Regulatory working group reported on its activities in various international regulatory bodies to harmonize and promote 450 MHz spectrum. The group had its stand-alone session after the general meeting. Lead by group’s chair Daan Beaufort, members of the group discussed near-term objectives.
