Intelsat, Three Other Satellite Operators Establish Consortium to Facilitate Mid-Band Spectrum Clearing Process - top government contractors - best government contracting eventIntelsat, SES, Eutelsat and Telesat have formed a consortium that will implement a proposal to obligate a portion of C-band spectrum for 5G terrestrial services.

Intelsat said Monday the C-Band Alliance will facilitate technical and commercial processes to clear a portion of the 3.7K to 4.2K megahertz frequency band in the U.S. to open the 5G environment to American mobile operators.

CBA will also work to protect customer services from interference caused by the integration of new wireless services in the C-band spectrum.

The consortium will be led by Bill Tolpegin, CEO of OTA Broadcasting, as CEO and Preston Padden, former executive vice president of government relations for The Walt Disney Company, as head of advocacy and government relations.

The proposal to repurpose the C-band spectrum to enable 5G services responds to a Federal Communications Commission proposed rulemaking that was approved in July.
