Communications Alliance Submission on the Australian AI Ethics Framework
Communications Alliance has made a submission to the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science Discussion Paper regarding an Artificial Intelligence, Australia’s Ethics Framework.
The submission commends the Department for undertaking the initiative and for providing a useful summary of existing domestic law and regulation as it pertains to AI, as well as international frameworks.

Communications Alliance SSWG Submission on the ACMA Consultation Paper on the Introduction of 112 MHz channels for fixed point-to-point links in the 38 GHz band
The Satellite Services Working Group (SSWG) submission argues that the consultation on the 38 GHz band forms an integral element of the replanning process in the 28 GHz band and that it is key to a successful outcome for the future of the 28 GHz band.
The SSWG regards the proposals put forward by the ACMA in the Consultation Paper as sensible, and believes that their implementation will contribute to the highest value use of spectrum.
The SSWG supports the 112 MHz channel arrangements proposed by the ACMA together with the grandfathering of lower capacity channels. It argues that the 100 MHz channels may also attract the interest of the IMT community in the broader sense of the 37 – 43.5 GHz range of frequencies. Therefore, developments in this band, taken together with the 26 GHz and 28 GHz bands, should be seen as interchangeable and holistic, leaving the 28 GHz band to develop with satellite broadband services and enhanced satellite mobility.
Communications Alliance SSWG submission on the ACMA Consultation Paper Draft spectrum reallocation recommendation for the 26GHz band in cities and regional centres
The Satellite Services Working Group (SSWG) submission provides some high-level comments on the proposed re-allocation, including:
