•
Mobile Satellite Company - a 50/50 JV between Eutelsat and SES
•
With 2x15 MHz of 2.1 GHz spectrum (extended-UMTS) over 27 Member States in EU – possible extension to
Switzerland and Norway
•
Spectrum band of SML can be exploited in direct communication with satellite and via a terrestrial
complementary ground network (CGC)
•
SML has secured MSS licensing in 19 Member States, others are under negotiation
•
Positioned in the market primarily as a capacity provider
•
Acting as an ‘S-band’ ecosystem developer
•
SML Owns an S-Band payload on the satellite Eutelsat 10A (former W2A) – launched in 2009

The ‘Burning platform’
The Mobile play ground
•
Smartphone density from 400/SQ KM to 12.800/ SQ KM in
2015
•
Data traffic > than 70 % of all traffic on the mobile network
•
Exponential growth of the capacity of the terminals
•
The tablet market is expected to generating yet another
increase in bandwidth required per connected device
•
« Cloudification » is creating significant requirements for
bandwidth and for latency
The Network Operator’s perspective
Network service providers are throwing more resources at the problem…. but will this be enough ? For how long and will their
shareholder’s continue to support the erosion of margins and the deterioration of the RoIC’s
The QoS sensitive customer’s perspective
Where do I go for guaranteed level of service ? How will I be sure the network will be available when needed for critical use

S-Band enables integrated Satellite & Terrestrial Services
Network structure - conceptual
Dedicated S-Band communications network, can support direct from satellite services or be integrated with existing UMTS
networks adding up to 20 MHz at each base station (2 X 10 MHz) . That capacity can be segmented in high QoS vs best
effort networks

Granted for 18 years - May 2009
Virgin spectrum – free of use
Spectrum can be configured as TDD(1) or FDD(2) to enable optimal use of available
spectrum
Spectrum is not subject to auction
S-Band spectrum can be used for 3G or for LTE
Notes: (1) Time Division Duplex
(2) Frequency Division Duplex1

S-Band an option for bridging the broadband gap ?
The S-Band specific attributes for bridging the broadband Gap
•
•
•
•
•
Spectrum availability:
–
Virgin spectrum available till 2027 – 2 x 15 MHz
–
Harmonized in 27 Member States
–
SML is priority tenant over the whole CEPT region
Technology availability :
–
S-Band (2170-2200/1980-2010) – study item at 3GPP (tbc this week) ,
–
Support from Korea, North America
–
Likely availability of standardized user’s equipments and RAN in S-band by Q4 2014 , ‘Proprietary equipments’ available
Cost effectiveness :
–
Reduced costs of terrestrial development due to base station/backhaul re-use of current system
–
No coverage requirements
–
Satellite coverage reducing need for terrestrial network development in rural area
–
No auction – spectrum access costs is negotiated with SML
Ability to develop ‘dedicated’ network
–
High QoS network subset ( ex Public Safety, MNC networks, ) vs best effort nets
–
Ability to engage in a fully dedicated network on land, sea and in the air
Redundant network

S- Band : a complement to existing Broadband network
S-Band : An option to offer a different type of offload – an offload for QoS sensitive customers
•
•
Safety and security networks :
–
S-band provides the Mobile Broadband complement to the existing Tetra/Tetrapol networks ; high value customer offload
–
S-band provides 100 % coverage (via satellite) , ideal complement to optimize deployment cost of MNO networks for M2M
applications requiring full coverage;
–
S-band provides redundancy for critical system / application
High end Commercial ex transportation regulation and surveillance, :
–
Mobile data - video capture in motion (service vehicle, situational awareness (uav’s, airborn resources)
–
Real time situational analysis
–
Mobilization of critical enterprise applications requiring ‘always on‘ devices /always available network
S-Band positioned as a complementary network to existing resources . S-Band attributes can command a
premium pricing towards high end customers seeking ‘behind the wall’ networks with guaranteed

Access to additional capacity (more spectrum thrown into the 3G/4G resource pool)
‘Protection’ of the ‘high value’ business in the MVNO structure:
Limited build out required to illuminate the spectrum
Unconstrained deployment (ie spectrum to be deployed only in area that are in need for capacity)
Incremental efficiencies : Reduced cost / MB as fixed costs are shared among more participants
No auction

Plan towards a dedicated, harmonized, pan European broadband network (PPDR/MNC’s)
Dedicated organization (MVNO like)
Best in class TCO (assuming ‘site sharing’ of existing ‘real estate’ and backhauling and use of CoTS technologies )
Transition to dedicated network by the concept of in country roaming agreement.
Additional benefits due to satellite use : coverage, redundancy in case of major satellite failure, ability to address land,
maritime and airborne operations / applications
Optimal deployment of spectrum resources (terrestrial and satellite)
Potential Pan European market play (Public Safety or MNC’s) enabling to engage in standardization of 3GPP for PPDR
Accelerated development of technological eco system
