Spectrum Allocations: The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the international organization within the United Nations that develops international regulations "to ensure rational, equitable, efficient and economical use of the radio-frequency spectrum." The ITU establishes global allocations of electromagnetic spectrum, or radio frequencies, that are intended to support specific types of services: mobile and fixed communications, maritime communications, radar and more, and minimizes harmful radio frequency interference.
Unprecedented progress in the development of radiocommunication services has resulted in an increased demand for radio-frequency spectrum worldwide.
