In a press statement, Eutelsat said that it wishes to take a direct active part in the discussions on C-band
clearing and repurposing.
Alliance, or CBA, was established by Intelsat, SES, Eutelsat and Telesat to implement the safe and efficient clearing and repurposing of C-band
spectrum, supporting the United States in its goal of leadership in 5G deployment and innovation.
To address these challenges, Fujitsu Laboratories developed an ultra-large transmission capacity optical wavelength-division multiplexing system (a patent application was filed) that batch converts C-band
optical signals output by a transmitter into new wavelengths for transmission, and then converts them back to the original wavelength band before sending them to the receiver.
He explained that currently all C-Band
positions in his ministry were multiple graded and multiple titled in line with the directive.
Potentially affected C-Band
weather radar locations shown on BOM's map include Sydney (Kurnell), Melbourne Airport, Melbourne (Laverton), Adelaide (Sellicks Hill), Perth Airport, Perth (Serpentine), Hobart Airport, Hobart (Mt Koonya), Cairns, Townsville (Hervey Range), Wagga Wagga, Kalgoorlie, Mildura, Geraldton, NW Tasmania (West Takone), Yarrawonga, Broadmeadows, Mt Gambier, Moree, Woomera, Ceduna, Bairnsdale, Warrego, Longreach, Mackay, Bowen, Weipa, Albany, Esperance, Newdegate, South Doodlakine, and Watheroo.
"Under this proposal, the remaining 3800-4200MHz of the C-band
would be secured for satellite use, and fair compensation would be paid to the affected parties.
networks and connectivity and generate important value out of it.

, and HTS
Paris-based technology consultancy Euroconsult examined the situation on-the-ground in three markets representative of the diverse economies of southern Asia and the Pacific, and found that - in addition to the hundreds of millions of consumers who rely on C-band
television streams - the banking and finance, energy production, and government sectors were particularly dependent on satellite networks using C-band
spectrum, which is prized for its reliability and scope of coverage.
Under the multi-year agreement, financial details of which were not available, Intelsat will provide SpeedCast access to Intelsat's global C-band
and Ku-band satellite capacity as well as to its terrestrially managed network, IntelsatOne.
The designed antenna meets also the requirements of meteorological radars, whose operating frequency bands are 2.7-3.0 GHz for the S-band and 5.4-5.8 GHz for the C-band
According to Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) website, it is configured to carry a total of 30 communication transponders in normal C-band
, lower extended C-band
and Ku-band as well as a GPS Aided GEO Augmented Navigation (GAGAN) payload operating in L1 and L5 bands.
