The Vital Hertz: Radio Spectrum
Satellite Operators Provide Crucial Connectivity Around the World Using Vital Satellite Frequency Bands and Therefore Sharing Arrangements with Mobile Operators Should Not Target These Bands
The space 36,000 kilometers above the Earth, as unlimited as it may seem, is quite a finite resource.
Irrespective of the number of spacecraft orbiting at that far a distance, the transmissions are confined, as per the law of physics, by the radio spectrum that can be operated at the geostationary ring around the Equator. The authorisation to use this spectrum is granted by the States which have applied for these rights through the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a regulatory body of the United Nations.
Smarter Mines Empowered People
German-based global satellite provider CETel, enabled by SES Networks’ end-to-end managed connectivity solutions, has transformed mining operations in one of the most remote, land-locked sites in the world with access to cloud-based systems.Read the full case study
