The result is that tree leavesand rain block a much larger proportion of an L-band
wavelengdi than a military UHF wavelength, leading to more interference.
The sale will include Inmarsat's microwave and WiMAX networks in the US Gulf of Mexico serving drillers, producers and energy vessel owners; its VSAT interests in Russia, the UK, the US and Canada, its telecommunications systems integration business operating worldwide, and its retail L-band
energy satcoms business.
The EU has also been looking for the L-band
as Europe-wide spectrum for DVB-H broadcasts.
The initiative was achieved in the context of the recent decision from the CEPT (European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administration) to harmonise use of the L-band
(1452-1492 MHz), reserving it specifically for supplemental downlink technology.
Therefore, SAMENA supports the harmonisation and the use of the L-band
for SDL in the Middle East and North Africa," said Bocar Ba, CEO at SAMENA Telecommunications Council.
The success of the IsatData Pro service so early on is testament to the fact that both we and SkyWave have listened to customers and developed a solution that combines the highest payload and lowest latency of any L-band
satellite store-and-forward service on the market today," said Ronald Spithout, President, Inmarsat Enterprise.
With less than a week until the start of WRC-15, we hope that the Asia Pacific countries will review their position on L-band
spectrum and align with the rest of the world in order to drive low-cost access to mobile services to meet rapidly growing demand, enhance rural coverage and improve service quality.
The CFP model DEV 2161 and DEV 2162 are Active L-Band
Splitters for the 500 to 2300 MHz frequency range.
The announcement follows the recent introduction of fixed fee options on FleetBroadband, which provide very large allowances for merchant fleets that want the functionality and reliability of an L-band
service with predictable fixed costs.
After two years of extensive studies, CEPT ECC decided to harmonise the L-band
for Supplemental Downlink.
The activity will cover the design development and test of an L-Band
high power output multiplexer Engineering Model with enhanced power handling/multipactor performance sharp rejection and flat in-band group delay.
