S: 22-04-2021
T: 03-06-2022
WG FM tasked WG SE after having reviewed the answers to the questionnaire on meteorological radars in 5350-5470 MHz.

ECC Report Wireless Access Systems including Radio Local Area Networks (WAS/RLAN) in the 6425-7125 MHz band

Study possible technical conditions under which Wireless Access Systems including Radio Local Area Networks(WAS/RLAN) could operate and coexist with existing services in the 6425-7125MHz band, and any additional studies, dependent upon the CEPT position and the results of WRC-23.

S: 05-11-2021
T: 26-07-2024

Studies should address:

  • technical and operational characteristics of LPI and VLP WAS/RLAN in the 6425-7125 MHz band;
  • sharing and compatibility issues between LPI and VLP WAS/RLAN and incumbent services in the 6425-7125 MHz band;


No regulatory measures shall be taken under this WI.


WRC-23 agenda item1.2 calls to study the band 6425-7125 MHz for IMT. The work in preparation forWRC-23 agenda item 1.2 will run independently from the work conducted under this work item here. The work under this work item here is neither a decision for the introduction of WAS/RLAN in the 6425-7125 MHz band, nor a prejudice toa future ECP on WRC-23 agenda item 1.2.


Dependent on the outcome of WRC-23 agenda item 1.2, further technical studies under a new WI could be initiated on the possible technical and usage conditions under which Low Power Indoor (LPI) and Very Low Power (VLP) portable Wireless Access Systems including Radio Local Area Networks (WAS/RLAN) in the 6425-7125 MHz band could coexist with IMT.

ECC Report UAS in the 1880-1920 MHz band FM59_02
Technical compatibility studies related to UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) in the 1880-1900 MHz and 1900-1920 MHz bands:

• The governmental use of command and control as well as payload systems by UAS in the 1880-1900 MHz and 1900-1920 MHz bands.

ECC Report To derive a methodology for protection criteria for FS except long term

To derive a general methodology for “short term” criteria for Fixed service and evaluate the relationship between "long term" and "shortterm" protection criteria and FDP (Fractional Degradation of Performance).

S: 02-10-2019
T: 31-01-2023

The report should provide general guidance / methodology on how to derive appropriate “short term” protection criteria for FS for any sharing and compatibility studies involving FS.

This report is expected to include following;

  • Evaluation of generic objective in absence of detailed information on power distribution of the interferer.
  • Demonstration of the application of this methodology by giving some examples for “short term”criteria for different FS bands.
  • Evaluation of the impact of different parameters (e.g. ATPC, rain or multipath fading,error performance and availability objectives) on “short term” criteria and FDP.

ECC Report New microwave PMP technologies based on active antennas for 5G backhaul above 27.5 GHz

To assess the technical feasibility of a new microwave transport network PMP system based on active antennas, beamforming and interference cancellation techniques.

To evaluate coordination as well as aspects of planning with existing FS including suitable frequency bands / approaches for these new PMP systems in the bands already allocated to the FS above 27.5 GHz.

S: 02-10-2019
T: 30-06-2022

The rationale for this newsystem is to fulfil specific 5G transport network requirements allowing an improved spectral efficiency in terms of much higher frequency reuse.

As the 26 GHz band is the pioneer band for 5G in the CEPT countries, it will not be under consideration for this WI.

No mobile users will be consideredunder this WI.

SE19 will ensure consistency with the ECC 5G roadmap.

Rev. ECC Report Revision of ECC Report 173
To study and gather up to date information related to developments in the FS in CEPT
S: 20-05-2020
T: 31-01-2023
Last update of the current ECC Report 173 was in 2018 with data from 2016. 
The FS continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of future networks including backhaul for mobile. The demand for higher capacity FS links is increasing and it is timely to get the most up to date information on current usage and future trends in FS. This information is expected to be useful for administrations and industry to facilitate a range of discussions.

Outcome of WI SE19_42 can be used under WI SE19_46 as appropriate

* Target dates are seen as the intended date for the final approval of the related deliverable by the responsible entity. Internal deadlines for project teams and dates for the start of Public Consultations can be reflected in the remarks column. In general this implies that the draft deliverable should be completed by the project team one WG meeting earlier for publication.
