Bowie, Maryland, Lichtenau/Baden, Germany, 1st October 2018 – LS telcom Inc., a worldwide leader in spectrum management and monitoring solutions, today announced that it has delivered a comprehensive study of 5G spectrum compatibility to Intelsat and SES, leading providers of C-Band satellite services in the United States. The objective of this spectrum study was to analyze the characteristics and impact of signal interference as well as potential mitigation measures as a result of introducing 5G deployments in adjacent spectrum to existing C-Band satellite services.
As the FCC continues its comprehensive analysis of optimal spectrum for 5G, the use of a portion of 3.7GHz to 4.2GHz (commonly referred to as C-Band) has become a likely candidate. To better understand the potential impacts to existing C-Band satellite systems and users, the study analyzed the interaction between a hypothetical 5G network with the existing operational characteristics of the C-Band satellite in the 3.7GHz to 4.2GHz spectrum. The study provided by LS telcom covered multiple network components and a variety of operational scenarios to analyze and predict the potential impacts of 5G operations and the subsequent adjustments and mitigation techniques required for existing satellite and ground station equipment.
“We are excited to be part of this dynamic time in spectrum management. As the push to 5G continues, the need to understand the impacts of adjacent systems and spectrum sharing are critical to the success of the next generation of wireless technology, as well as for the incumbent systems that are now being asked to share their spectrum resources,” stated Casey Joseph, Vice President at LS telcom, Inc. “With our comprehensive solutions and global experience in spectrum management, LS telcom is uniquely positioned to help both new entrants as well as incumbent systems in this transition.”
The delivery included a report of findings based on several modelled locations as well as a software toolset enabling ongoing analysis of additional site locations and scenarios. The baseline of the solution leveraged LS telcom’s SpectrumMap, a visualization platform able to interpolate data from multiple sensor and source inputs to provide coverage predictions.
