SpaceX raises 5G concerns — Analysis
The aerospace firm said ‘harmful interference’ could render its Starlink network inoperable
SpaceX warns that 5G networks may render Starlink’s internet services inaccessible. Dish has done extensive analysis and pushed to use a different spectrum.
SpaceX released this week its review stating that 5G mobile service using 12GHz spectrum may pose serious problems for users. The SpaceX review stated that satellites orbiting in orbit are using the 12GHz band. “provide critical downlink services to Americans in every corner of the nation.”
“SpaceX’s study – even with very favorable assumptions that would reduce interference from mobile operations – shows harmful interference from terrestrial mobile service to SpaceX’s Starlink broadband terminals,” the company said, referring to Dish’s 5G plans.
SpaceX stated that interference by the TV provider could lead to complete outages of American customers. “74 percent of the time.”
While the company has 2,700 Starlink satellites currently in low-earth orbit that provide web services for hundreds of thousands, Elon Musk, CEO, has stated that he plans to increase the number to 42,000 over the next decade.
Dish for its part insists that the 5G project it is working on will be successful “win-win”All parties were involved. A company executive stated last year that SpaceX is a good idea and the company has no problems with it. “co-existence is possible.”Dish responded to this new analysis by stating that it “expert engineers” are evaluating SpaceX’s latest claims.
Dish and SpaceX have been at odds before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Dish had previously accused SpaceX of not responding to it. “expert studies”Concerning the 5G question: The aerospace company has claimed Dish “filed intentionally misleading reports”To the agency.
SpaceX’s dispute with SpaceX isn’t the first public disagreement over 5G. As the technology develops, it becomes increasingly popular around the globe. A number of US airlines voiced their opposition to 5G network deployments around airports. They claimed that they might interfere with important aircraft safety systems. Cell providers Verizon and AT&T have spearheaded the rollout plans after winning around $80 billion in contracts to install the technology around the US in 2021, though have since agreed to create temporary ‘buffer zones’ around airports to allow time to resolve the interference risks.
