WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The conference, the note explained, identified approximately 250 Megahertz of globally harmonized spectrum to be cleared for the exclusive use of mobile broadband.
"The 2015 World Radiocommunication Conference ended on November 27, after four weeks, concluding with agreements to identify additional spectrum bands for wireless broadband and approving the use of satellite links for Unmanned Aviation Systems (UAS)," the note, issued on Friday, stated.
The conference also approved the use of selected fixed satellite service links for command and control of long-range drones.
Such drones would be used for different aviation services including disaster relief, meteorology, wildlife management and pipeline monitoring, the note added.
The conference is held every four years by the International Telecommunication Union, the UN-affiliated international organization for telecommunications. The 2015 conference included 3,000 delegates from more than 160 countries.
