Satellite communications industry preserves C-band spectrum
Posted: Tue, Nov 20, 2007, 8:11 AM ET (1311 GMT)
The satellite communications industry won a major victory at an international meeting this month when regulators elected to preserve a key spectrum band for satellite services. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), at its quadrennial World Radiocommunication Conference in Geneva, decided to keep a section of spectrum in the C-band, from 3.4 to 4.2 GHz, reserved for satellite services. Going into the conference, there were proposals to allow terrestrial wireless services, like WiMAX , to use that spectrum band, a proposal that satellite industry advocates argued would create interference that would make satellite communications impossible in that band.
