What is C-band?
C-band is a range of electromagnetic frequencies used for various telecommunications purposes, including fixed-satellite service. The name comes from the fact that the frequencies are in the "C" range of the electromagnetic spectrum.
C-band is important because it is one of the few frequency ranges that can be used for long-distance communications. This makes it ideal for satellite service, which often needs to relay signals over large distances. C-band is also less susceptible to interference than other frequency ranges, making it ideal for critical communications such as emergency services.
In 2022, C-band will become even more important as 5G networks begin to rollout. 5G will require large amounts of bandwidth, and C-band will be one of the few frequency ranges that can support 5G speeds. This makes C-band critical for the future of telecommunications.
