5G scared American satellite operators
Satellite operators expressed their concerns over adopted in the United States decisions about 5G.
Federal telecommunication Commission (FCC) decided, the opening four frequency range above 24 GHz to use the new service 5G. This decision opens the way for the expansion of 5G in USA, the newspaper writes Advanced Television.
However, frequencies occupying a total of strip in 11 GHz include ranges, which is also used by satellite operators, who repeatedly expressed their fears of the fact, the opening of these frequencies, previously approved for use by satellite operators, will create a risk of interference with industry and consumers. The FCC claim, that use satellite band frequencies 28 GHz was "secondary", however, these rights will be protected.
In a statement, the FCC said: "We have carefully studied the objections of a number of players in the satellite sector against allowing the use of this band by mobile services, however, it came to the provisional conclusion, the parties have not cited compelling reason why, to deny the mobile services in this frequency band. Despite the statements of these parties about the need to have regulatory certainty for investment in their systems, the resolution of mobile services to use this band doesn't create FSS operators are no clear barriers to the use of this spectrum. Under the current rules, the use of this range of FSS operators is secondary to LMDS. Moreover, the use of this band by mobile services is the primary worldwide. Investment, which satellite operators have invested in the development of Ka—band, was done with a clear awareness of the unoriginality of its use. The main reason, the use of this band by mobile services discussed enough, was, what existed technologies, allowing the use of such millimetric bands for mobile services. And now with the advent of this technology it would be unwise to refrain from use of this range is solely due to the presence of "secondary" users. And finally, note, what satellite operators, are opposed to the use of the band 27,5—28,35 GHz, don't offer reasonable alternatives, which could be used for mobile services".
The FCC also added: "In addition, we reject the argument, the band 28 GHz should not be considered as the frequency range for mobile services for the reason, that the frequency bands are not duplicated just like in other countries. In spite of the fact, we recognize the benefits from harmonization of frequency allocations at the international level, we also recognize the fact, not every country will be able to allocate the same frequency bands for the operation of similar services because of the differences in the needs and practices of use. We see, international equipment manufacturers, such as Samsung, Huawei and Alcatel—Lucent is considering this band as a potential band for mobile services. In addition, the fact, what in the world this band is allocated for primary use by mobile services, also an important argument in favor of the use of its mobile services".
Association the satellite industry (SIA) also made his statement.
"SIA welcomes efforts by the FCC to take action to resolve significant concerns of the satellite industry over potential interference to existing and planned satellite systems, operating in these ranges, from their combined use satellite and terrestrial 5G services, – the President of the SIA That Stroup. – SIA also enthusiastically greeted the proposal, for terrestrial stations, operating in the range 28 GHz, however, it remains concerned about a possible interference. We look forward to further collaboration with the FCC and appreciate the Commission's willingness to revisit this issue if necessary. This rulemaking raises many complex technical issues, and we are ready to examine in detail the rules, offered for adoption".
The satellite is an integral part of the system of wireless access to broadband, serving millions of American users, including residents of regions with poor coverage wired connection and no coating. The industry also hopes to play the same key role in the delivery of 5G services to all Americans.
