Friday 1 September 2017 | 18:23 CET | News
Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) held a public hearing to discuss the proposal for the allocation of the so-called S-Band for the Global Mobile Satellite Service (SMGS). Currently, part of the S-band is used by terrestrial fixed and mobile telephone networks.The regulator recommended the allocation of sub-bands from 1,990 - 2,110 MHz (Earth to space) and 2,180 - 2,200 (space to Earth), on a primary basis and without exclusivity. The option privileges the coexistence between the networks of telecommunications services and obeys the international standardization.

It is a good decision to allow S-band (1990-2110) / (2180-2200) to SMGS. It will also be good to consideration of sub-bands for different applications such short data burst applications to provide access to IOT and Narrow-Band connectivity to remote region.
