Site planning, safety, and WRC-15 readiness

This important session in the Advances in Technology stream will provide the broadcast engineer with a high value tutorial update on a number of important topics related to site planning – including regulatory considerations and coverage performance.

The session (Emerald Room, 16:00-18:00) comprises: an overview and update on international standards for RF safety, presented by the chair of the IEEE International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES); system design methods for optimising antenna performance at transmission sites to maximise signal coverage, with demonstrations of method of moment and terrain based modelling software; plus a timely update on critical spectrum issues, in the lead up to the World Radio Communications Conference 2015 (WRC-15) being held in Geneva, Switzerland, this coming November.

Chaired by co-producer Eric Wandel, president, Wavepoint Research, and with expert panellists including C-K Chou, chairman of the IEEE’s International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety, and Christine DiLapi, Harris Corporation’s associate principle spectral engineer. The session is co-produced by Rich Chernock, CSO at Triveni Digital.
