TRAI’s OHD on spectrum for space-based communication services scheduled today

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s open house discussion on consultation paper on assignment of spectrum for space-based communication services is scheduled today at 10:30 am. It is being conducted through video conferencing.

The Department of Space had invited comments on Draft Spacecom Policy liberalizing space segment for private sector participation to provide commercial communication services in India. This includes the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite constellations operational over India. In case of satellite communication, the subscriber is accessed from the satellite through “Access Spectrum” similar to “Access Spectrum” in terrestrial network and the demand for such spectrum will potentially increase in the future.

The Department of Telecommunications had requested TRAI to provide recommendations on appropriate frequency bands, band plan, block size, applicable reserve price, quantum of spectrum to be auctioned and associated conditions for auction of spectrum for space-based communication services.

Subsequently DoT had conveyed that TRAI may provide suitable recommendations for each of the space-based communication services after detailed examination.
