The unconsidered deployment of planned wireless broadband technologies is a critical threat to the operations of the Asia-Pacific satellite industry's C-band (3.4GHz-3.7GHz range) services and the industry's entire livelihood, according to the Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA).
The organization said that if regional administrations allocated C-band spectrum to much-hyped WiMAX services, the impact of a "spectrum grab" from broadband wireless access (BWA) technologies could be disastrous.
"Unlike BWA, which can be located in other spectrum bands, satellite providers do not have the option of changing frequencies. We cannot go anywhere. We cannot change frequencies for satellite services tomorrow," said AsiaSat CEO Peter Jackson.
