On the Impact of the Results of WRC 2019 on THz Communications
This contribution describes and assesses the outcome of WRC 2019 w.r.t. THz communications. WRC 2019 has included a new footnote to the radio regulations, which describes the conditions for the use of the spectrum between 275 and 450 GHz by land mobile and fixed service. Totally, 160 GHz of spectrum are now available for THz communications, where no specific conditions are necessary to protect EESS. This provides a sound basis for the future implementation of THz communications. Furthermore, the paper identifies a couple of future regulatory and standardization activities.
