Protecting C-band

There are many vital services provided via satellite services in C-band, and the satellite industry continues working on many fronts to safeguard C-band. At the World Radio Communications Conference 2015 (WRC-15), the International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) industry lobbied for additional spectrum in the C-band frequency band (3.4 – 4.2 GHz receive/downlink and 5.8-6.7 GHz transmit/uplink) for IMT services.

Interference Management

End users continue to state that radio frequency interference (RFI) is the single most important service issue relative to their use of satellite services. RFI disrupts television signals, data transmissions and other customer services, hindering business growth.

To foster an interference-free space environment, Intelsat launched the Intelsat Interference Management Initiative (I3). As part of the I3 industry-wide activities, Intelsat worked with satellite operators, industry groups, customers and equipment manufacturers to make RFI reduction a top priority. Read More.
