Alphastar to Deploy 5G Wireless Network Using C Band
Alphastar, a satellite company,owns several FCC grandfathered licensees for use of mmWave spectrums and plans to deploy a 5G wireless network using the C Band. The FCC is in the process of approving C Band and others for wireless uses. Intelsat with Intel recommended to the FCC that satellite companies should commercially lease their spectrums to wireless providers to speed up the adoption of 5G. Alphastar is seeking a lease/JV to deploy 5G network to gain the advantages of early movers.
On August 3, the FCC began the process of approval of the C Band (FCC called it Mid-Band) and other mmWave spectrums for wireless applications.
Alphastar FCC mmWave licenses are grandfathered since 1994 with a footprint covering North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa and part of Asia.
Because the C Band is harmonized among countries by the ITU, the network can be deployed in many countries in JV with domestic partners.
The giant satellite company Intelsat with Intel recommended to the FCC to speed up the process of adoption 5G that satellite companies can negotiate a commercial lease agreement with wireless providers.
Alphastar is seeking lease/JV to enjoy the rewards of the first movers since the competitors will buy similar licenses through an expensive and lengthy auction.
Alphastar can deploy an affordable network as it acquired the licenses before the auction system.
