Guidelines to enable field technicians meet the SES C-band filter installation technical requirements

The C-band migration in the U.S. is underway and has been enabled by hundreds of satellite earth stations engineers and technicians across the country.

Given the massive migration scale, SES has set up processes to make sure performance information is collected using standard instrumentation and procedures to have a single benchmark for service specifications in all filter installations. The objective of the processes is to obtain earth station performance information to verify that it meets SES service specifications for earth stations. Technicians are required to send this information to SES for verification of performance and record keeping purposes.
