Satellite C-Band Alliance says it can give 5G terrestrial 180 MHz, with reduced guard band

PARIS — The alliance of satellite operators attempting to clear C-band spectrum  — in return for compensation — for 5G terrestrial networks in the United States said it has found a way to offer 80% more capacity for 5G while ceding just 33% more radio spectrum.

The C-Band Alliance of Intelsat, SES, Eutelsat and Telesat Canada said that after nearly a year’s examination of factors including C-band Earth station filters and simulations of nearby 5G transmissions, they have concluded they can offer 180 MHz of actual C-band capacity to terrestrial operators . . .
