Panel Discussion 1: The Challenge of the C-Band


Moderation: Richard Victor Womersley | Managing Director | LS telcom UK

The C-Band (specifically 3.3 to 4.2 GHz) has always been a source of contention between satellite operators and the mobile industry to both of whom it represents an invaluable resource.  With increasing focus on the band for new 5G services, including those for verticals, the band has become a challenge for regulators as well as for those seeking access to it.  This panel session will examine different approaches being taken to allow more flexible use of the band, protecting incumbent services whilst enabling new and innovative uses.
